Ours are made in Nepal in the Kathmandu Valley. Tibetan singing bowls are made of a special alloy of bronze, iron and zinc. You make your bowl "sing" (resonate) by continuously rubbing a hard stick known as a "puja" stick around the outside rim of the bowl. When rubbed in this manner, the bowl resonates with two pure tones. This is due to the shape of the bowl, the rim thickness and the relative masses of the rim and base of the bowl.
The sound is beautiful and haunting. If you do not meditate or you mediate without a Tibetan singing bowl, don't worry. Simply make your bowl sing for the pure enjoyment of the sound and your interaction with the singing bowl.
We offer three sizes of Tibetan Singing Bowls:
All of our singing bowls are hand selected and individually tested for sound quality . All are hand-formed. No two are alike. Instructions for bowl singing are included with each bowl. They are made in Nepal by Tibetan artisans. We do not sell antique singing bowls. Instead we support the making of new items in traditional and ancient art forms, thus keeping these traditions alive.
If you are interested in larger sizes or you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us via phone or email us with your inquiry.
