Tibetan Singing Bowl Set - Extra LargeTibetan singing bowls date back to ancient times. Shrouded in mystery for centuries, the singing bowl is believed to be a powerful healing tool and today is used widely in meditation, yoga, therapy, and personal enjoyment.
Singing bowls are played by striking with a mallet, producing a warm bell tone. They can also be played by slowly rubbing a wooden mallet around the rim to produce a continuous 'singing' sound. Measuring approximately 9" in diameter, each bowl is one of a kind and hand selected for its high quality harmonic overtones. The singing bowl includes a wooden striker and cushion. (Cushion colors and mallet style may vary).
Tibetan Singing bowls have a profound and mystical sound when played. They are considered to literally "sing". Made in India. Strikers may vary.
How to Use:
Place bowl in the palm of your hand. Hold the wooden striker in your other hand, pointing down toward the bowl. Strike the side of the bowl at the rim. In a clockwise motion, touch the side of the bowl at the rim as the bowl is still sounding, and "pick up" the tone, carrying it around the top rim of the bowl. Adjust pressure and speed as you rub the dowel around the bowl rim. Through practice you will learn about the varying nuances, and become proficient in making it sing. Listen for overtones and lighten if the sound dampens. Practice and enjoy!
