I think we all can agree the world now is much more stressful than it used to be. Even with all of the electronics available to make our lives easier, it just doesn’t balance out. Sometimes you just have to sit back and smell the coffee, so to speak. I recently had the opportunity to review my very own Tibetan Singing Bowl to assist me in “chilling out.”
What is a Tibetan Singing Bowl?
When the sponsor contacted me asking me if I would like to do a review & giveaway of their Tibetan Singing Bowl I was confused. I thought, I’m not a Buddhist, will my readers want to know more about this item? I really didn’t know. I decided to visit the sponsor’s website Silver Sky Imports. I was able to view the beautifully all hand made Tibetan Singing bowls.
Tibetan Singing bowls were actually brought to Tibet from India by members who follow the teachings of Buddha. The bowls start out as a combination of 7 different metals and are then hammered into shape to create 7 different distinct distinct tones. According to tradition, the seven metals correspond with each of the planets:
Silver = Moon
Mercury = Mercury
Copper = Venus
Iron = Mars
Tin = Jupiter
Lead = Saturn
The Mystery of Tibetan Singing Bowls
Their isn’t very much written information available surrounding Tibetan Singing Bowls. The irony is these bowls are found in monasteries and many private homes but they don’t come with directions on how to use them. Their is no mention of them in the Buddhist canon (Buddhist Bible). According to folklore Monks are forbidden to speak about the singing bowls. It is said the singing bowls allow High Lamas to visit other realms and dimensions during secret rituals.
Practical Uses for Tibetan Singing Bowls
Singing bowls have a history of being a very powerful spiritual tool. They can be used in meditation rituals, relaxation, massage, yoga and stress reduction. They can also be a beautiful “artsy” conversation piece to sit on your coffee table or mantle.
Detroit Mom’s Views on Tibetan Singing Bowls
I am in awe of the singing bowl. I consider myself to be a very spiritual person. I enjoy Peace and Harmony. Any vessel that allows me to achieve peace, harmony and solace in my life and my home, I’m willing to give it a try. I love the beautiful artistry of the singing bowl. To know that an artisan took the time to beat precious metals into submission to make my my bowl is truly unique. Each bowl is different and has it’s own personality. I haven’t actually had the time to sit down and really use my singing bowl because we are pretty much packed up for our upcoming move, but I do plan to place it on my coffee table to spark conversation with my visitors.
