Antique Tibetan Orissa Singing Bowl and by leighswiccanboutique

♥ This Tibetan Singing Bowl is a Orissa-style, 4-5" (10-13 cm) and it is at least 100 years old. This particular Singing Bowl is from Orissa and is deeper. This deepness seems to correlate with an especially long sustain and ease of play. Tibetan singing bowls produce a beautiful, complex tone, full of harmonics and overtones, when struck or rubbed with a stick. Many people find them very helpful for meditation, and some practitioners use them for sound healing. ♥ Antique Tibetan Singing Bowls were made with a consecrated alloy that contained between 5 and 12 different metals; gold, silver, lead, tin, copper, mercury and most importantly iron and meteorite elements. The main alloy components that contribute to the sound are copper, tin and iron. The type of iron that was added to the bowls came from the meteorites that fell in the Himalayas. The other additional metals and sometimes crystals and minerals were also added at the time of forging. ♥ This Singing bowl is at least 100 yrs old with a natural patina so you can enjoy its beauty as it once was so many years ago. It may look new at first but look closely and you can see the age of history and can tell it was used often to make beautiful music long ago. It's bell still chimes today, and emits such a beautiful bell tone bringing your mind, body and soul at ease, and at rest. This bowl was created with the intention to be used in rituals, healing, and as an offering to the Deities placed upon your altar. Sound is very beneficial to our our health and well being. The warm tone, gentle vibration and subtle harmonic overtones provide many subtle benefits. Give yourself this little gift every day. Think of the sound as an offering for the benefit of all living things. ♥ The protective cushion is a free Gift with the purchase of the singing bowl and striker.
