These Fair Trade Tingsha Cymbals are made of a traditional alloy of 17 metals in a blend that creates a hauntingly beautiful sound, tingsha are used in tantric practice in order to bring harmony with the nature spirits of the environment. They are also used as melody offerings in tantric music. A lovely beginning and ending to any meditation or to cleanse and uplift the environment. They are designed with the Eight Auspicious symbols of Buddhism. Approx. 3" in diameter.

These Cymbals are made by Tibetan Monks and refugees at the Drepung Loseling Monastery in India.

The Drepung Loseling Monastery was Tibet's largest monastic institution, with a population over the centuries that ranged from 7,000 to 12,000 monks. Only 250 of these monastics managed to escape the Chinese Communist invasion of 1959; the remainder were killed or imprisoned. With the Dalai Lama's blessings, the monastery re-established itself in southern India in 1971. Since then, many young refugees have fled Tibet to join Loseling in the hope of receiving a traditional Tibetan education. The population of Drepung Loseling now stands at almost 3,000. The elders of the community support the young students through the proceeds from a small farm and several small cottage industries, including an incense manufacturing project, a carpet factory, and studios for creating traditional Tibetan arts and crafts. We support the efforts of Drepung Loseling to preserve the Tibetan culture among their young people.
