Since ancient times, dating back to the era of Buddha Shakyamuni
(2,500 years ago) singing bowls have been used to enhance meditative
states and aid in the attainment of enlightenment. It is said that
Tibetan Singing Bowls are forged with a prayer in each hammer blow.
These Tibetan Singing Bowls are the authentic antique bowls that
were hand made many years ago, using an ancient combination of
several metals. The bowls are no longer being produced, and are
very difficult to obtain. Each bowl has been hand selected for
clarity of sound, ease of playing, and each comes with a mallet.

Mandala Bowls are modern bowls made out
of heavy bell metal, with beautiful designs etched on both the inside and outside surfaces. Not only are they visually appealing, but they are easy to play and have a very clear tone. Each bowl
comes with its own rubber o-ring and playing wand.
Antique Bell & Dorje Set A beautiful Ganta & Dorje Set with a hand-made case showing the 3 Jewels. There are 7 petals inside the bell. They are the principal ritual objects of Tantric Buddhism. Traditionally, they are used together, the bell in the left hand, the dorje in the right. They represent the union of wisdom and compassion, which is enlightenment.
Tingshas have been used for centuries by Tibetan Buddhists to prepare for meditation. When the two pieces strike each other they produce a clear, pure, cleansing sound which can be used to focus the mind before and after meditation. Tinghsas are also for clearing space, and the healing and balancing of auric fields. They are used in Feng Shui to ring in the four corners of a room. The sound of tingshas is like a summons. The pure, ringing tones create an opening in reality, and are said to "fill" emptiness.
This is a very old set of Tingshas, with a hand-made case, approx. 3 1/2" round. The design is superb, showing the 8 Auspicious Signs. One of a Kind!
