Tibetan Singing Bowl 5#4 (750-800g)
Singing bowls, also called healing bowls, can be traced back to Asia as early as 2000 B.C. They are made of an alloy of seven different metals, connected to seven astrological planets, which create a range of different sounds and overtones. Those seven metals are gold as Sun, silver as Moon, mercury as Mercury, copper as Venus, iron as Mars, tin as Jupiter, lead as Saturn. Some singing bowls only consist of only five metals. These bowls format, depth, colour, girth and composition are variable.
Tibetan singing bowls can be used as a vessel to cook, as offering bowls, as beat instruments and for meditation or relaxation. Bowls have a double effect with sound and vibration.
Science has confirmed that music, as an organised form of sound can directly affect mood, brainwaves, the nervous system and body chemistry. Music plays a key role in the religions and spirituality of many cultures. Music is still applied to aid digestion, induce sleep and treat mental disturbances.
The vibrations of singing bowls stimulate the body to recreate its own harmonic frequency and help produce the alpha waves that are present in the brain in deep relaxation. Singing bowls of all sizes are said to clean the atmosphere around us of negative energy and emotional blockages.
Many people feel that they are touched and cleaned in their soul when they listen to the sound of the singing bowl. As some people describe it ‘time stands still’ – a feeling of peace, relief in aching parts of the body, or contact with something beyond daily life.
It is said that renowned masters of sound among Tibetan Lamas have used singing bowls in secret rituals. They have travelled out of the body through the power of sound. Authentic singing bowls can be used instead of a cup of coffee to help you digest lunch, to help you sleep and to help you recover from illness. Tibetan bowls are of Nepalese origin and are used by Newari people during their ritual fire ceremony. There is a link between bowls and the Ayurvedic approach and of music therapy and Ayurvedic medical care. Singing bowls are still used as eating dishes by pregnant Nepalese woman who believe this helps restore the loss of minerals and Iron.
There are five basic techniques for playing the bowls; beating, encircling, adding of water, adding of toneless vowels, spinning.
