About Tibetan Singing Bowls:
What are Singing Bowls?
Singing bowls also called the healing bowls, can be traced back in Asia as early as 2000 B.C. They are made of an alloy of seven different metals, connected to seven astrological planets, which create a range of different sounds and overtones. Those seven metals are gold as Sun, silver as Moon, mercury as Mercury, copper as Venus, iron as Mars, tin as Jupiter, and lead- as Saturn. Some singing bowl's format, depth, color, girth and composition are variable.
There are main 4 categories of traditional singing bowls. Cast singing bowls are often painted with Tibetan designs on both sides. Hand hammered bowls are plain and provide a more complex sound. Hand hammered and painted bowls are made by hand and later painted to make it more visually appealing. Lastly, inside crafted singing bowls are cast singing bowls with additional crafting on the inside.
How to play a singing bowl:
Place bowl on palm of one of your hands or on a cushion.
Slide/rotate the striker firmly around rim of the bowl with an even pressure and uniform speed to produce vibration/sound.
Another method to produce vibration and sound is by just striking the bowl with a wood or padded striker. This is a simple method and is the easiest.
WHAT IS A 'CHAKRA' ?
A chakra is thought to be an energy node in the human body. The word "Chakra" is Sanskrit for wheel or circle and also referring to the ‘wheel of life’, it signifies one of seven basic energy centers in the body. The seven main chakras are described as being aligned in an ascending column from the base of the spine to the top of the head. Each chakra is associated with a certain color, sounds, multiple specific functions, and an aspect of consciousness, a classical element, development stage of life, body functions and other distinguishing characteristics. The chakras are thought to vitalize the physical body and to be associated with interactions of both a physical and mental nature. They are considered loci of life energy, or prana, which is thought to flow among them along pathways called nadis. ". This energy is connected with our physical body through seven centers. These centers represent our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual growth. When these centers are healthy and in balance, then we are the equivalent.
