These etched meditation singing bowls feature the 5 Dhyani Buddha on the inside believed to represent the five qualities of the Buddha. Each Buddha is believed to be capable of overcoming a particular evil with a particular good. The Five Dhyani Buddha, also known as Wisdom Buddhas, are aspects of the "truth-body" or dharmakaya. Ignorance, anger, pride, obsessiveness, and jealously are all transformed by enlightenment into elements of wisdom .
