I am beyond delighted with this exquisite Medicine Buddha Singing Bowl. I had not realized the intricacy of the etched mantras and beautiful Medicine Buddha image that are on the inside of this precious artifact. The tones of this bowl are equally exquisite. Thank you for your careful and thoughtful packing and very prompt shipping.
This singing bowl is majestic. This is a nice and big bowl with a beautiful tone and generous sustain. I have the standard mallet, and the red wool mallet also. If you tap it with the wool mallet the low hum sings for quite a long while. The standard mallet pings a slightly higher tone which is refreshing. When vibrating the bowl with the standard mallet you get the low resonant hum that is so lovely (it's really nice to have the two different mallets that bring out the different tonal qualities). The bowl is so beautiful and is a nice centrepiece and reminder for practice. This is the most beautiful sacred tool I've ever seen. I feel so lucky to be able to have this in my home. Thank you Dharma Shop!
This is a lovely bowl to look at, but more importantly, it has a beautiful deep sound and very long sustain. My clients love it, and have reported that they feel the sustain deeply, head to toe. It is quite heavy though, so if you are someone who will hold a bowl for a long period of time, just know that.
