Brass Singing Bowl with Mala Beads
Singing bowls produce a magical harmonic resonance that gently suffuses the body. They are as pleasurable to play as to listen to. Although no one is quite sure of the true origin of singing bowls, they are likely from the ancient Tibetan Bon culture and may originally have simply been used for food! Today singing bowls are used for healing, meditation and sound therapy. Play your singing bowl by either striking or slowly rubbing the wooden mallet around the top rim of the bowl, producing a continuous harmonic resonance. Malas are a string of beads used to count mantras or breaths in meditation. There may be a large or guru bead to signal the starting point for 108 repetitions. The bowl is 10cm in diameter, has a cushion and stick, and comes in it’s own display box.
