The sacred Healing Mantra Carved Singing Bowl is designed to produce deep and melodious tones. It is engraved with the holy mantra Om Mani Padme Hum, & some other auspicious symbols. This antique bowl was hand-hammered to form its meticulous shape and has a beautiful inlay of a buddha inside. The eye-catching ancient carvings make it ideal for decorative purposes as well. It comes with a well-finished mallet made of fine quality wood wrapped with the maroon-colored soft felt of appropriate density covered on its one end for striking.
Singing bowls are believed to be traditionally used both in rituals and, more mundanely, as food bowls during the pre-Buddhist Tibetan Bon culture. Today, singing bowls aid meditation, religious practice, relaxation, and healthcare. They produce sounds and vibrations when hit or circled with a mallet called Puja.
How to Use:
1. Place the bowl on the soft padded cushion.
2. With the mallet in one hand, balance the bowl in place while holding the cushion in the other hand.
3. Gently tap the mallet to the outside and inside edges of the bowl or play it around the rim.
4. The resonant sounds & deep vibrations will fill and calm your soul.
