Our Tibetan Singing Bowls are authentic, antique bowls that come from the areas of Himalaya including Nepal, Tibet, and India. It is believed by historians that the Antique Tibetan Singing Bowls were crafted over 2,500 years ago. The Antique Tibetan Singing Bowls are not produced anymore, therefore, they are very difficult to obtain.
The antique bowls were handcrafted and cannot be reproduced today. It is believed that the bowls were made from five to seven metals such as bronze, silver, copper, iron, tin, and zinc.
The bowls can be used for meditation, relaxation, stress reduction, sound healing, healthcare, personal well being and religious practice. They have been used by meditation teachers, sound therapists, massage practitioners, doctors, healing specialists, and voice coaches.
Each Antique Tibetan Singing Bowl comes with a wooden playing dowel. The bowls vary by thickness, size, and weight. Normally the bowl sizes are available in 5”, 6”, 7”, 8”, 9”, 10”, 11”, and 12”. Please call a sales representative to obtain sizes and prices in stock. The Antique Tibetan Singing Bowls’ wooden mallets can be purchased separately.
There are various ways to play the Antique Tibetan Singing Bowls. One way is to place the bowl in the palm of your hand, and with the other hand tap the outside of the bowl with the mallet. Striking the bowl will make it resonate.
Another way to play the bowl is to place the bowl in the palm of your hand, and with the other hand rub the outside of the rim in a circular motion with the mallet. This will allow the bowl to vibrate freely, and produce overtones and a continuous singing sound. You can also increase the speed which will allow the sound to rise.
