Singing bowls produce sounds that invoke a deep state of relaxation which naturally assists one in entering into meditation, the ultimate goal being enlightenment. 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.
They create a range of sounds to restore the normal vibratory frequencies of diseased and out-of-harmony parts of the body, mind, and soul.
Small singing bowls typically do not exceed six inches, and its ability to travel is a big draw. A small, light singing bowl can go practically anywhere that you do. And unlike others, you can play it in the palm of your hand.
You can play a medium-sized bowl in your hand. However, the vibrations will be stronger, so you must be more careful not to let it drop. Many find that playing the rim at a steady, slow pace prevents thinner bowls from vibrating too much.
many people love to collect singing bowls. Rather than stop at the single bowl, they have bowls of all sizes and origins and may play each one differently.
Why own a range of bowls? Why select a singing bowl of a particular size? As you’ll find, there are some differences, but perhaps not what you’d expect.
