Tibetan / Himalayan Singing Bowls

The sounds of these bowls touch a ‘still place’ within. Sometimes this becalming sound flows with such exquisite softness, it can bring one to tears.

How to Make your Singing Bowl ‘Sing’

Two singing bowls
Hold your bowl on a flat hand...................................Grasping it dampens the sound.

• Place the bowl in the palm of your flattened hand. Gong it softly with the wooden mallet and with your eyes closed, absorb the sound. Listen not only with your ears, but also get in touch with how it makes you feel. The sound and harmonics is always a unique experience for each person.

• Then, strike the bowl lightly again and with pressure rub the mallet firmly around the top outer edge. It starts to sing quietly and increases in volume with successive rotations. Do not force the sound louder than it wishes to vibrate, otherwise it will rattle unpleasantly. Persevere and you will get the knack of it.

• Sound becomes visible when you rub your bowl, which has been filled with a little water. It hums and sometimes the vibrations even cause a fountain of tiny, sparkling droplets. These sounds patterns the water much like a mandala.

Antique Singing Bowls are no longer available. The Singing Bowls of today are manufactured by hand or they are machine-made or both. All the bowls that I supply are hand-beaten bowls.

I do not supply the machine made singing bowls that have shiny, highly polished appearances.
