Tibetan Singing Bowls

Tibetan Singing Bowls

When the Tibetans were forced to leave Tibet because of the Chinese Invasion, they carried their ritual prayer possessions with them, which included rugs, ting-sha, prayer wheels, butter lamps, curved knives, dorje (thunderbolt) and bell, magic daggers, skull caps, and singing bowls.

Singing bowls are struck to begin and finalize meditation and prayer sessions, and to generate a pure tone for toning and chanting.
