Tibetan singing bowls are known for their mystical qualities and are multi-phonic instruments producing several harmonic overtones at the same time. The pure sounds produced when the rim is rubbed by the mallet is said to put the brain into a meditative state and emits tones in the same wavelength as the brain waves that produce feelings of relaxation.
Singing Bowls are widely used as an aid in meditation, yoga, music therapy, sound healing, religious services, performance and for personal enjoyment. 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 side of the bowl is etched with the Sanskrit mantra, Om Mani Padme Hum. The first word Om is a sacred syllable. The word Mani means 'jewel', Padme is the 'lotus flower' which is the Buddhist sacred flower, and Hum represents the spirit of enlightenment.
The meditation bowl measures approximately 6" in diameter and 3 " tall. Bowls may vary slightly in design and size as these are hand finished. This set includes a satin brocade cushion and wooden striker. Striker style and cushion color may vary. Due to the finishing process, some variations of bowl color will occur, from lighter to darker.
