What is Singing Bowls
Singing bowls (also known as Tibetan Singing Bowls, rin gongs, Himalayan bowls or suzu gongs) are a type of bell, specifically classified as a standing bell. Rather than hanging inverted or attached to a handle, singing bowls sit with the bottom surface resting. The sides and rim of singing bowls vibrate to produce sound characterized by a fundamental frequency (first harmonic) and usually two audible harmonic overtones (second and third harmonic). According to singing bowl researcher Joseph Feinstein, singing bowls were traditionally used in Asia and the tradition of making sound with bronze bowls could go back 3,000 or more years to the bronze age.
Singing bowls are used worldwide for meditation, music, relaxation, personal well-being. They are used by a wide range of professionals, including health professionals, school teachers, musicians and spiritual teachers. Singing bowls are used in health care by psychotherapists, massage therapists, cancer specialists, stress and meditation specialists. They are used to help treat cancer patients and also for post traumatic stress disorder. They are popular in classrooms to help facilitate group activities and focus students' attention.
Singing bowls were historically made throughout Asia, especially Nepal, China and Japan. They are closely related to decorative bells made along the silk road from the Near East to Western Asia. Today they are made in Nepal, India, Japan, China and Korea. The best known types are from the Himalayan region and are often referred to as Tibetan singing bowls although any history in Tibet is disputable as there are none found there today.
Tibetan Singing Bowls:
We tend to avoid specific dating these types of bowls. Some of these bowls date back to the late 18th century. Dating bowls is a tricky business, since their form varies but little over long expanses of time and their condition depends so much upon individual conditions of storage and use. They should be viewed as cultural artifacts of artistic merit, and viewed this way, age is of but secondary importance. We will however state that all the bowls shown here were created for local use and were used as such. These bowls are all from the Himalayas regions near Tibet.
This Tibetan hand hammered singing bowl is up to 250 years old and comes unpolished in its original form with superb hammer marks visible and a great smooth patina. It was used in Tibetan Buddhist mediation over the years. This auction also includes a striker which is used to make the bowl sing. This bowl does include the pillow (cushion) pictured. Each bowl is hand selected for its tone, size, and quality. It has a wonderful tone that carries for a very long time. The multi-layered tone of these bowls lasts as long as 3 minutes!
Singing Bowls were brought to Tibet from India along with the teachings of Lord Buddha. Most people use these bowls for Buddhist spiritual meditation or to create a great art or conversation piece. Hand made in a wonderful combination of 7 different metals which create 7 different distinct tones. According to tradition, the seven metals correspond with each of the planets, gold for the Sun, silver for the Moon, mercury for well, Mercury, copper for Venus, iron for Mars, tin for Jupiter, and lead for Saturn.
Since Tibetan singing bowls have a very mysterious history it is sometimes hard to find information about them, in fact there is literally no mention of them in the Tibetan Buddhist canon. They can be found in both monasteries and homes, but when questioned about there existence vague answers are usually given. It has been rumored that it is actually forbidden for monks to speak about the singing bowls. Some say that the bowls are used by high lamas in secret rituals, which gives them the ability to travel to different realms and dimensions. In the end one thing remains certain, that singing bowls are a very powerful spiritual tool. In addition to their traditional usage for meditation, Tibetan Singing Bowls are used for Relaxation, Stress Reduction, Healing, and Reiki.
The bowls are priced based on weight, size, and condition. The larger or heavier the bowl, the higher the price. Also, please note that all of these bowls are left in their original imported condition.
