Tibetan singing bowls are traditionally constructed of a 7 metal alloy, said to include gold, silver, copper, iron, lead, tin, and mercury. Though specific historical records are absent, the metallurgical techniques necessary for making the bowls existed in Asia as early as 2500 years ago. The bowls have been used in many traditions, though the exact ritual context is often obscure. However, the use of bells, cymbals and similar instruments in meditative practices is common, and it is probable that the singing bowls were used in a similar manner. Both Buddhism and Hinduism include ideas of the role of sound and vibration in trance and transformation, as do other religions. The notion that sound and vibration affect consciousness is also widespread and forms the basis for the ritual use of drums and other instruments in shamanic religions. Certain sounds are used as therapy in many cultures, especially when someone is seen as out of balance or having lost his natural internal rhythm. Today, singing bowls are most often used as meditation aids. However, anyone can benefit from the relaxing, soothing effects of the sounds produced.

This is a beautifully etched straight-sided bowl with a medium to low medium tone. (you may choose which you would prefer) Very high quality bowl, and i'm putting these up at the lowest possible price for a bowl of this quality and tone. Comes with the very large padded striker shown. The bowls are available polished or unpolished as pictured.

15 cm diameter. 8 cm high. weighs 1 kilo.

A unique gift idea. Beautifully complemented by the new Dragon Tingcha i'm offering, also at a lowered price.

Singing bowls are complimented by the sound made by Tingsha, small Tibetan cymbals (each disc is 7.5 cm), when played together they create layers of harmonics that are truly startling.

See my other auctions for Tingsha.
