Details

Exclusive authentic Tibetan Singing bowl from India. According to Tibetan oral tradition, the existence of singing bowls dates back to the time of the historical Buddha Shakyamuni (560 - 480 B.C.). The tradition was brought from India to Tibet, along with the teachings of the Buddha. Singing bowls produce sounds which invoke a deep state of relaxation which naturally assists one in entering into meditation, the ultimate goal being enlightenment. They are a quintessential aid to meditation, and can be found on private Buddhist altars, and in temples, monasteries and meditation halls throughout the world.

How to Play Bowls

Hold the bowl in the palm of either hand. With the striker, rub the outside rim in a circular motion. Keep an even pressure. Gently increase the speed as the bowl begins to vibrate, and as the sound grows. It may help to tap the bowl to begin the vibration. Sometimes this method can take practice. Another method is "gonging" or "striking" the bowls. This is a simple method that involves striking the bowl with a wood or padded striker.
