Our Singing bowls come from India and include a wood mallet. Singing Bowls are one of the ancient Tibetan meditation tools. The pure sounds produced when the rim is rubbed by the mallet is said to put the brain into a meditative state. The vibrations of the singing bowls have the same wave length found in the brain waves that produce feelings of relaxation. This Bowl is made of Alloy (Copper, Iron, Tin, Lead and Mercury. It is 4.5" in circumference and weights .5kg.
For Buddha, life is to be lived on Earth, not in Heaven… and Nirvana is not a place, but a state of mind in which one is released from fear and desire, living in love and compassion here on Earth.
