Tibetan Singing Bowl from Nepal - Medium
Hand-hammered singing bowl with mallet and cushion from Nepal Women Enterprise.
Tibetan singing bowls are used for deep relaxation, mediation, stress reduction, holistic healing, Reiki, chakra balancing, and music. Many people find that the rich blend of harmonic overtones which the bells produce have a direct affect upon their chakras.
Singing bowls are played by striking the rim of the bowl with a padded mallet. They can also be played by the friction of rubbing a wood, plastic, or leather wrapped mallet around the rim of the bowl to emphasize the harmonic overtones and a continuous 'singing' sound. Experiment with your speed. Usually people go too fast! Let the sound build up slowly as the singing bowl picks up the vibration.
