Heart Sutra Singing Bowl

9 reviews   |  


  • Handcrafted by 4th and 5th generation singing bowl artisans in the Kathmandu Valley exclusively for DharmaShop, this singing bowl features the Heart Sutra mantra in Tibetan script.
  • The Heart Sutra is a popular and frequently used sutra in Mahayana Buddhism.  It is a synopsis of the complete spiritual path from delusion, to emptiness, to achievement of supreme enlightenment.
  • These texts are meant to be supports for practice, and the points within them are many to be attained, not merely understood.  It states that, "form is emptiness, and emptiness is form."  In emptiness you will find true enlightenment and nirvana.

The Sanskrit title of the Heart Sutra translates to, "The Heart of the Perfection of Wisdom."  Its teachings rely on the perfection of wisdom - the wisdom that allows you to perceive reality directly and without conceptual attachments, thereby achieving enlightenment.  This essential reality, in emptiness, leads to true nirvana.

Hand carved into the exterior of this bowl is the mantra, "Gate, Gate, Paragate, Parasamgate, Bodhi Svaha," which can be translated to, "gone, gone, everyone gone tthe other shore, awakening, svaha."  The Heart Sutra concludes with this mantra.  Interpreted, it represents awakening, going beyond, and achieving complete enlightenment.

The sound file gives an example of the long-lasting and deeply resonating tone that your Heart Sutra Bowl will have!  Because each bowl is handmade, the note may vary slightly from bowl to bowl.

Measures approximately 10 inches in diameter and is about 4.25 inches deep.  Comes with a wooden striker.  Cushion sold separately.

Sounds great and recorded with ouHandcrafted Red Wool Mallet!

Beautiful singing bowl

This singing bowl is absolutely gorgeous. The workmanship is superb and it has a fantastic and beautiful tone. It has certainly helped to deepen my practice. I agree that this bowl is a great value for the money. The heart sutra text is beautifully done, although the bowl does include the Dharma Shop logo on the rim which may detract some buyers. It is a pretty good size and looks great with a large singing bowl cushion. Thanks Dharma Shop!

This bowl still amazes me

This bowl in particular quickly became my one of my favorite tones. I truly believe this bowl is the most underpriced out of the many I have purchased from dharmashop. I love and support what you guys are doing as a small buisness supporting tibet and the Nepalese artisans. These bowls bring me so much peace just seeing them set up in my room as well as my staff at work. Nobody in my work place had really heard of them until me, and now anytime anyone gets upset I end up finding them in the backroom playing one of the bowls I bring in. Recently purchased my first harvest moon bowl, the tone is so pure. Hope to get one of the bigger ones once I have money set aside for it. For anyone considering purchasing from dharmashop, you can take my word they are trusted and the bowls your receive are of exquisite quality. Listen to each tone they advertise them with to make sure you get the tone thats right for you! Thank you Dharmashop!
