If you want to start proclaiming that you are at one with your spiritual
self you may want to think about adding a very special Tibetan Singing
Bowl to your collection of Spiritual Trinkets. Though they can add
aesthetic brilliance to your spiritual alter-creating sound from a
Tibetan Singing Bowl can bring you closer to the core of your being.
I have been on a decades long search for ‘my’ Tibetan Singing Bowl
and I feel that it must compel me…whisper my name…call out to me
that it is mine…
Therefore; I have yet to add one to my ever growing collection of
spiritual trinkets. It is possible to access hundreds upon thousands of
incredible Youtube videos, CD’s, online music, ever the archaic cassette
tapes filled with the healing sounds of the Tibetan Singing Bowl.

They are a quintessential aid to meditation, and can be found on private Buddhist altars, and in temples, monasteries and meditation halls throughout the world.
Metallurgical analysis have varied, from a predominantly two metal alloy of copper and tin with trace iron content (Oxford University, UK) to an eight alloy of copper and tin with traces of iron, lead, zinc, gold, silver and mercury (Concordia University, Quebec).
In addition to their traditional usage for meditation, Tibetan singing bowls are used for deep relaxation, stress reduction, holistic healing, Reiki, chakra balancing, and World music. Many people find that the rich blend of harmonic overtones which the bells produce have a direct affect upon their chakras.
Playing the bells usually causes an immediate centering effect. The tones set up a “frequency following response” that creates a balancing left/right brain synchronization. Meditating on the subtle sounds of the Tibetan singing bowl tunes one in to the universal sound within and without.
