Lingam singing bowls are among the rarest of all Himalayan singing bowls. Known as a rather masculine shape, they feature a small cone-like protrusion, the lingam, inside the base of the bowl. A small matching impression can be seen on the bottom of the bowl.
In Buddhist legend, the 8 Auspicious Symbols represent offerings the gods made to the Buddha after his enlightenment. It is believed that each of these symbols have powers to bring blessings. The flaming dorje is also considered an emblem of protection.
The compassion mantra, Om Mani Padme Hum, invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion.
Surrounding the Lingham you will see a Tibetan mandala design, a geometrical design often used for meditation. Mandalas are rich with symbolism and sacred meaning. In fact, the etymology of the word "mandala" suggests not just a circle but a "container of essence."
Bowl rings at a D note when struck with a woolen mallet. This note resonates with the Sacral Chakra. This energy is the center for creating relationships of all kinds. It is where we develop an inward sense of self and an outward awareness of others.
Measures approximately 9.75 inches in diameter and is about 4.25 inches deep.
All sound recordings are made by striking the bowl once with our Handcrafted Red Wool Mallet!
