Singing Bowls are widely used as an aid in meditation, yoga, music therapy, sound healing, religious services, performance and for personal enjoyment. This large singing bowl set is nicely detailed with an etched medicine buddha inside the bowl in a rich burnished red tone. Buddha is a sanskrit word that means "the awakened one". Buddha taught that every man could deliver himself from the wheel of rebirth with a correct inner attitude. The right hand represents vitarka mudra, or the transmission of Buddha's teaching. His left hand holds the alms bowl, which symbolizes renunciation. The outer flat sided bowl has a contrasting burnished red etched symmetrical design.
The bowl measures approximately 8" in diameter and a height of 4". Bowls may vary slightly in design and size as these are hand crafted. The set includes a satin brocade cushion and wooden striker.
