A zafu is a small solid round pillow used as a seat in meditation. It lifts the body enough to take pressure off the knees and ankles and aids with proper alignment of the back. It is normally used on top of a zabuton.
A zabuton is a flat square mat used for sitting on during meditation. It provides padding for the knees and ankles and is usually used with a zafu on top.
