Our gorgeously engraved antiqued singing bowls ring with a purity that will uplift your heart and relax your mind. Ganesh, the Buddha Eyes motif, and mantra detail adorn this beautiful bowl; comes with a wooden mallet.
Singing bowls are used in yoga, music therapy, sound relaxing, and religious ceremonies. In the Buddhist tradition, they are played to signal the beginning and the end of silent meditation cycles. Like a bell, the tone is produced by striking the side of the bowl with a wooden mallet. By running the mallet around the bowl - only with slight pressure - a pure tone will eventually rise. When this happens, the bowl is said to sing - hence its name.
Ganesh, or Ganesha, the son of Shiva and Parvati, is the deity whom worshipers first acknowledge when visiting a temple. He is associated with OM, is the patron of letters and learning, and is invoked at the start of a new venture or journey. It is said that meditating on Ganesh assures success.
The seven metals and their planetary associations are Gold (Sun), Silver (Moon), Copper (Venus), Iron (Mars), Tin (Jupiter), Mercury/Quicksilver (Mercury), and Lead (Saturn) all of which feature heavily in alchemical symbolism.
