What is a Himalayan singing bowl?


  1. Usually made of brass this bowl is a musical or meditative instrument. A hand-held wooden implement is used to rub the sides of the bowl to create noisy vibrations. I believe the cultural use of this instrument is to separate from the world and to isolate into one’s own being or the universal consciousness.

  2. It is a metal bowl with a wooden piece that you run along the edge to make a pretty ringing sound, like the kind of sound you get running a wet finger on the edge of a crystal glass. You can get them at places like 10000 villages that sell fair-trade works from foreign artisans.
