Tingshas (tingshaw, dingsha) are a meditation bell in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Tingsha can be rung anytime one wants to achieve a calm and meditative state of mind. They can be rung to fix a moment or place in one's memory. Tingsha can be part of a home altar or shrine, or easily transported to use in a garden, yoga center, or other setting. Our tingsha are made of bell metal (li) by master Tibetan craftsmen working in accordance with fair trade principles in northern India.
All of the our Himalayan singing bowls are old, some 100 or more years old. They are becoming increasingly difficult to find. These Himalayan singing bowls were collected throughout the mountainous areas of Tibet, Nepal, Bhutan and India. There are slight stylistic differences depending on the origin of the singing bowl, but all have the lovely multi-tonal sounds to sooth, relax and help entrain the brain to a meditative state.
