- Handmade by master artisans, this Tibetan singing bowl was carefully selected in Kathmandu from an absolutely stunning collection of carved bowls.
- Each bowl requires an incredible amount of time and skill to create, therefore this style is limited. Every piece is hand hammered and polished before being etched with extraordinary detail.
- Inside features an intricate Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva image along with Eternal Knot symbols and the mantra of compassion, Om Mani Padme Hum, inside of mandala designs. The repeated compassion mantra decorates the outside and a unique sacred geometry design grounds the base of the bowl.
Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva, also known as the Thousand Arm Chenrezig, is the embodiment of great compassion, vowed to free all sentient beings from suffering. In Buddhist art, Avalokiteshvara is often shown with multiple heads and arms which symbolize his limitless capacity to perceive suffering and to help all beings.
Om Mani Padme Hum, the compassion mantra, invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion. It can be seen inside of Sri Yantra mandala designs that are said to be the geometric representation of the most sacred sounds in the Universe, including the sound of Om.
The base of the bowl displays a geometrical design based on the principles of sacred geometry. These designs are often used for meditation to connect on a deeper spiritual level.
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. Because each bowl is handmade, the note may vary slightly from bowl to bowl.
Measures approximately 9.75 inches in diameter and is about 4 inches deep. Cushion sold separately. Comes with a traditional wooden striker.
