How are your singing bowls made?
Each bowl is carefully hand-crafted by skilled Tibetan artisans using traditional techniques. In accordance with an ancient Tibetan formula, our singing bowls are made of “panchaloga”, which is a Sanskrit word meaning a five-metal alloy that includes copper, zinc, iron and traces of gold and silver. Each of our singing bowls is among the finest in the world for aesthetic quality, richness of sound, sustainment of tone, and ease and smoothness of playing. Every singing bowl will be unique and may have some imperfections which add to the character of the piece.
What are the benefits of singing bowls?
Singing bowls have incredible healing effects and are widely recommended by health practitioners. The vibrations created by a singing bowl benefit the body by:
- Reducing stress and anxiety;
- Stimulating the immune system;
- Increasing energy levels;
- Eliminating anger and lowering blood pressure;
- Improving circulation and blood flow;
- Promoting deep relaxation;
- Inhibiting and relieving pain;
- Combating negative energy and emotions;
- Strengthening intuition;
- Improving sleep;
- Aiding digestion;
- Balancing the chakras;
- Helping achieve an elevated state of consciousness;
- Increasing mental clarity and creativity;
- Promoting happiness and stillness; and
- Aiding fibromyalgia and psoriasis.
In Ayurvedic medicine, illness is caused by disharmony within the body. Because matter is energy that vibrates at different rates, the structure of matter can be changed by altering the rate of vibration. The body and mind are healthy when they vibrate in harmony. When you play a singing bowl, the vibrations cause your body to emit alpha and theta brain waves in synchronicity with the vibrations emanating from your singing bowl. These brainwaves are essential to healing the body and mind and create an experience commonly referred to as “being in the zone”. An increasing number of mainstream medical institutions around the world use singing bowls in health treatment, including cancer treatment.
How do I play my singing bowl?
Your singing bowl is best played laying flat on your palm. This will permit the vibrations of the singing bowl to reverberate throughout your body for maximum health benefits.
It may take some practice to make your new singing bowl sing, but be patient, breathe deeply, and enjoy the learning process! For the beginners, we recommend softly striking the bowl with the padded-end of the mallet and then immediately and softly circling the rim of the bowl with the padded-end of the mallet. Make sure that you don’t clutch the singing bowl with your hand – it should be held lightly in your palm. Also ensure that you are circling the rim with the mallet at a consistent speed and using firm and even pressure. Although our bowls “sing” very quickly (which is a mark of a high quality bowl), beginners may need to circle the rim ten or more times before making the bowl sing for the first time.
If you apply these steps, you will soon hear your bowl “sing” and feel its incredible vibrations throughout your body! After 30 minutes of practice, you should be able to make your bowl sing almost immediately.
What is the note of the sound made by your singing bowls?
When our singing bowls are struck they emit a beautiful and balanced note of B which resonates most strongly with the crown chakra. When our singing bowls are made to sing, they emit a beautiful and balanced note of F which resonates most strongly with the heart chakra.
How Do I Clean and Maintain My Singing Bowl?
First and most importantly – do not use artificial cleansers and scrubs that you might have around the house! These can be extremely damaging to the delicate sound and potential your singing bowl carries.
How To Clean Your Singing Bowl:
1.) Fill one bowl with water and gently squeeze lemon juice into the water
2.) Fill a second bowl with pure, slightly warm water
3.) Grab 3 clean towels
4.) Submerge the first towel in the bowl with water and lemon juice and wring the towel out well. Use this to clean the areas that may have become dirty or dusty
5.) Submerge the second towel in the bowl with just warm water and wring the towel out well. The key here is to remove all of the citric acid from the lemon that may be on the bowl from the first towel
6.) Use the third towel to gently buff and dry the bowl, be sure to remove all traces of water and completely dry the bowl to prevent any water stains from happening
For how long does the singing bowl ring after struck with the mallet?
Our bowls reverberate for approximately 10-15 seconds when struck. That is a lengthy period of reverberation for singing bowls and a mark of high quality. The lengthy reverberation makes our bowls ideal for meditation.
