Original Hand Made in Nepal
in accordance to thousands years old rules of craftsmanship...
bowls go back to about 1000 BC and have been used ever since. It
is said that each bowl is hand hammered alloy of bronze and seven metals:
gold (representing sun), silver (representing moon), mercury (representing
Mercury), copper (representing Venus), iron (representing Mars), tin
(representing Jupiter), and antimony (representing Saturn), some say there
are nine metals (additional zinc and nickel), and some are saying there
are ten metals the last one is from heaven - meteorite... Honestly, no one
knows for sure, since the answers are vague..... - we know they are
original, they have beautiful sound, they are hand hammered.
Singing bowls are sound meditation devices used in Tibetan Buddhist
monasteries. The bowl can be made to sing with a complex harmonic tone
that draws the mind into a state of meditative mental focus. Each singing
bowl can vibrate up to seven individual and simultaneous tones, each at
its own consistent frequency, and can sustain such a rich vibration for
The sound resonating from
singing bowls is pure and very powerful in centering the mind and body. It
has been found that among the wave patterns of different singing bowls
there is a measurable wave pattern that is equivalent to the alpha waves
and/or theta waves produced by the brain.
They have been used for spiritual awakening, for healing, for meditation...
It is said: their sound can make an opening to other realms,... it can
take a message to Spirit, to Angels,... it carries ones prayers... it
balances left-right brain synchronization.. these subtle sounds connect
you with the universal sound...etc. Some accounts actually state that it
is forbidden, even within the monasteries, to talk about the singing bowls
and that the highest lamas used them in secret rituals to travel to other
dimensions and other realms. It is stated further that the secrets of
sound yield so much power that they must be kept hidden.
are two basic ways of playing a singing bowl: you can either strike it
with a "puja"
- stick (made of wood)
for percussive, pulsating tones; or you can rub around the edge with a
"puja" for a sustained effect (in a way similar to that of
rubbing a finger around the edge of a wine glass).
pressure that you use to apply "puja" onto the rim of the bowl
will affect the sounds the bowl produces, as also will the speed with
which you rotate it. Too much or too little pressure, or the wrong speed,
will cause a nasty ‘rattling’ sound.
the bowl upon the palm of your hand will usually enable you to appreciate
the experience to a greater depth than placing the bowl on a tabletop or
can make the bowl "sing" by continuously rubbing
"puja" around the outside rim of the bowl. When rubbed in
this manner, the bowl resonates with pure tones. The sound is beautiful,
haunting, mesmerizing, it seams to be coming from some other dimension,
from outside, it grabs your mind and attention. It is difficult to describe
it. One must hear it. You may hear the bowl singing, hours or days later
after you played. This is natural and signals an enhanced state of
awareness. It is an excellent tool for deep relaxation.
Do not get discouraged when the only sound you hear is the rubbing or 'rattling'
one, keep on practicing, it is not the speed, and it is not how hard you
press,... it is.... hard to say - it is said "once your energy
field is clearer the bowl will start singing" ...
Bowls are storming the West with their mesmerizing sounds.
