The old Tarvati bowl was a bit of an impulse buy and I'm glad I went through with it. Arrived a couple days later, well shipped. Smooth as silk transaction from a business standpoint. The bowl itself is lovely, a simple, no-frills design. And it sang on my second try. Of course the tone was piercingly high and I wondered how in the world I'm supposed to relax to THAT, but I've learned there are many tones available to the ear once you spend some time with it. The more I use it, the more I can feel a connection to the bowl. No BS. I enjoyed the overall experience so much I decided to order a Fire Bowl tonight for variation. If it ends up being half as good as this little thing, I'm sure I'll be happy. I can say the antique Tarvati bowl is a lot of bang for the buck and a quality bowl. Even a novice can get the hang of it quickly.
I found Dharma Shop when I was searching for antique bowls. They went out of their way to find me the perfect set of three of the old singing bowls and I’m just thrilled with them. Even with the extra time to match them up, shipping was very fast. I went and purchased two fire bowls after that great experience and I can’t decide which are my favorite; the fire bowls or the antiques. Shipping was very quick and well packaged for those bowls as well. They are consistent it would seem. I look forward to going through them again as I continue to grow my sound therapy practice.
Received my beautiful Tarvati Singing bowl two days ago. I am awestruck. It is so simple, so ancient looking. Beautiful patina. Small, fits perfectly in my hand for playing, It sang beautifully and vibrated my entire body. I felt as though I have always had it. Made a very strong connection right out of the box! I have a feeling that it will always be my favorite. I felt as though it had been longing to sing for ages and I'm delighted that It can now do that in partnership with me. Thanks to All the folks at The Dharma Shop! It has found a sweet home.
This is my first singing bowl. I loved the idea that it was old and where it came from. I absolutely love the sound and am so pleased with my purchase. I love it so much!
The bowl I was sent has a wonderful rich tone and great resonance. I looked at a lot of bowls on different sites and I can genuinely say the sound quality of the Tarvati bowl is equal to larger, thicker bowls offered at two or three times the price. I asked for a specific tone, and the team at Dharma Shop went through 50 bowls just to find the best one for me. Amazing. I use the bowl every day. It never fails to restore peace and balance to my meditation space or enrich my practice. Great convenient portable size for travel too. Included with bowl was an attractive, useful, carved wooden striker. Highly recommend a very old Tarvati to anyone looking for a singing bowl.
