- Similar to singing bowls, gong meditation uses therapeutic tones to encourage deep relaxation and promotes healing and harmony through sound therapy.
- This gong is handmade in Nepal and features an etched conch shell design surrounded by repeating mantras for compassion.
- Gong sound therapy and meditation are believed to reduce stress and enhance happiness. Its sound can help encourage mindfulness during meditation practice.
The naga/conch shell is one of the Eight Auspicious Symbols and represents the fame of the Buddha's teaching which spreads in all directions like the sound of the conch trumpet. The mantra of compassion, Om Mani Padme Hum, invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion.
Gong measures approximately 11 1/2 inches in diameter and is about 1 3/4 inches deep. Comes with a traditional woolen mallet.
