Tibetan Singing Bowls

The history of Tibetan singing bowls is steeped in mystery. In fact, these beautifully resonant metal bowls may not even have originated in Tibet. They are apparently Buddhist in origin, and have been used for thousands of years for healing and meditation. Sound creates powerful vibrations - we all know that music can strongly affect moods, but it goes much deeper than that. Research in physics shows that different body parts resonate to different tones. In health, the tones are balanced, but when one part of the body is sick, its frequency is off, sending the whole system off balance. It is said that Tibetan singing bowls help balance the mind, enabling relaxation, stress reduction and deepening meditation. There is truly something very calming about the sound made by a Tibetan singing bowl.

Tibetan singing bowls are most often made from a blend of seven different metals - gold, silver, mercury, copper, iron, tin and lead. It has been said that these metals represent the different planets. It has also been said that they relate to different chakras. The singing bowl is played with a wooden dowel. Create the haunting resonance by holding the bowl in the palm of the hand (keep the hand loose; do not grasp it), and then dragging the dowel evenly over the rim. You can get the sound started by tapping the rim once or twice and then dragging the dowel without lifting it from the rim. The tones enhance a meditation session, and offer a moment of blissful relief during a stress-filled day.
