Singing bowls are traditionally used to add sound and depth to meditation rituals. The unique tonal sounds are created by tapping the side of the bowl with an instrument, or striker, then running the striker along the bowl’s edge. This produces deep, humming vibrations which quickly fill the room.
The bowl is made using 7 traditional metals: gold, silver, mercury, copper, iron, tin and lead. The bowl is treated with a striking blue and gold finish and is further decorated with Tibetan mantras on the outside and a gold Buddha Eyes symbol on the inside base. A wooden striker and silk cushion are provided, so all you really need is a free moment and a clear space on the table to enjoy the singing bowl’s tranquil effects. Bowl measures about 3.5 inches high, 6.5 inches at its widest point and weighs about 2 pounds.
Made in Nepal: no two items are alike. Each individual singing bowl will vary in thickness, weight and appearance. Color and specific decorative symbols will vary.
