This flat-sided singing bowl features the 5 Dhyani Buddhas on the inside of the bowl. Each Buddha is believed to be capable of overcoming a particular evil with a particular good. The Five Dhyani Buddhas, also known as Wisdom Buddhas, are all aspects of the "truth-body" or dharmakaya, which represents the principle of enlightenment.
The striker can produce sound in two ways. It can be tapped gently on the side of the bowl, which will produce a ringing sound, similar to a bell. The mallet can also be run along the rim of the bowl to produce a hum. With each pass, the tone will intensify and the bowl will 'sing'.
This Singing Bowl was made in India. The bowl measures 6" in diameter and is 3" tall. Mallet measures 7 1/4" inches long. Bowls may vary slightly in design and size as these are hand finished.
