Large Singing Bowl
Singing bowls are used during prayer, yoga and meditation practices for generating positive energy. Widely used by healers, monks and followers of Buddhism and Hinduism, they generate a harmonic, calming sound that is known to be therapeutic and healing.
The sides and rims vibrate to produce beautiful bell like tones when tapped or rubbed gently with a wooden object. Intricately embellished on the outside, this is a gorgeous piece to help focus and relax the body and mind.
- Place the singing bowl on an open hand or cushion whilst holding the mallet in the other hand
- Gently tap the mallet to the outside and inside edges of the singing bowl or tap the mallet to the outside and continue playing it around the rim
- Feel the calming sensation of the beautiful resonant sounds and vibrations
These are Thadobati style singing bowls - one of the most ancient types, dating back over 500 years. They are defined by having relatively vertical sides with a flat bottom and tones can range over four octaves, the widest range of any style.
Approximate dimensions: bowl 12cm D, 6.5cm H; mallet 18cm
