Singing Bowls - 10/4/2010

 Pink Lotus Singing Bowls

 At Pink Lotus Thangka we strive to provide you with a wide range of high quality Himalayan Singing Bowls. We specialise in traditional hand beaten Singing Bowls from small to very large to suite all budgets. We also carry a large stock of acid etching Singing Bowls still crafted in the old traditional manner creating beautiful images of Mantras and Deities.

All the Singing Bowls we have for sale will have the weight of the bowl in the description. Many sellers will supply you only with the size of the Bowl. Some of these may look great in the photograph but there are many Singing Bowls around that are of a thin nature giving a tinny sound and being liable to crack quite easily. Each of our descriptions will give you the size of the Bowl but will be accompanied by the weight of the Bowl and also the combined weight of the stand and stick to give you an idea of the total shipping weight.


We also try where possible to give you the note and Chakra of each of our Singing Bowls. If you see a bowl that you like but not a Chakra to match please let us know. We carry a wide stock in our Pink Lotus Tibetan Buddhist Dharma retail shop in St.Annes-on-Sea, and may be able to provide you with your request. All our Singing Bowls come with a wooden stand or cushion and a Puja stick or drum stick as standard. We also sell these as separate items. We sell certain Bowls in presentation boxes, which make an ideal way of giving a Singing Bowl as a gift.


We also have now in stock a fine selection of old Thadobati Singing Bowls. These Old bowls have been hand picked for the quality of sound and come with a nice ring singing bowl cushion and leather wooden striker. Also in stock we have a very large selection of new hand beaten singing bowls ranging in diameter from around 11cm to 36cm and we have the dark coloured etching singing bowls with a variety of nice Buddhist designs

About Singing Bowls

Singing bowls also called healing bowls can be traced back to Asia as early as 2000 B.C. They were traditionally 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 were gold as the Sun, silver as the Moon, mercury as Mercury, copper as Venus, iron as Mars, tin as Jupiter, and lead as Saturn. Most singing bowls today consist of only five metals. These bowls vary in format of depth, colour, girth and composition.

Sing bowls have been used as vessels 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, brain waves, the nervous system and the body chemistry. Music plays a key role in the religion 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 cleansed in their soul when they listen to the sound of the singing bowls. 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 traveled out of the body through the power of sound. 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 of music therapy and Ayurvedic medical care.

There are usually five basic techniques for playing the bowls:- Beating, Encircling, adding water, adding toneless vowels and Spinning.

Relaxation with singing bowls is used towards: -

· Promotion of the energy balances.
· Reduction of stress and involved emotions.
· Reducing of tensions.
· Upgrading of creativity and imagination.
· Elevating of life forces.
· Balancing of the hemispheres of the brain.
· Helping to harmonize body, spirit and soul.
· Giving a positive self-image and empowering assertiveness.
