- This etched Tibetan Lingam style singing bowl is incredibly detailed and was hand picked from a stunning collection of carved singing bowls made in Kathmandu.
- Lingam bowls are said to have extremely strong energy and overall long-lasting sound. Due to their aesthetic appeal and special sound, this style of bowl is very rare. They are highly sought after by collectors and practitioners alike.
It is cast, hammered, polished, and etched entirely by hand featuring the 8 Auspicious Symbols along the outside with dorje designs. Inside the bowl you will see the mantra of compassion in lotus petals surrounding the Lingham at the base.
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 compassion mantra, Om Mani Padme Hum, invokes the powerful benevolent attention and blessings of Chenrezig, the embodiment of compassion.

It is the center for unrefined emotions and personal power, and the center that give us the sense of complete satisfaction and contentment.

All sound recordings are made by striking the bowl once with our Handcrafted Red Wool Mallet!
