Choosing the Best Singing Bowl
Singing Tibetian Bowls are believed to have originated from Tibet four thousand years ago. They were used by the Tibetan monks, and the shamans before them. They are useful in the sense that the body and mind are affected by certain sounds and vibrations that cause them to relax and be easy. You can thus focus deeper within yourself.
These bowls are made in Nepal and India. They shall use three or five metals in the manufacturing process. Others are made of seven metals. Those make for exquisite bowls. They are made by hand, which increases they uniqueness and appeal. There are things that have to be in place in your purchase if you expect to have a good quality bowl to use.
There is a need not to rush the bowl searching process. Since you will be using them to heal your body and mind, you cannot afford any poor quality purchase. When in a physical store, ask to test the sound by striking the bowl with a stick. You should be given a thick wooden stick covered in soft leather for that purpose. By striking or rubbing the edge of the bowl, it shall produce a ring that shall last for some time. Look out for a rich and heavy tome. There is also a need for you to feel that ring resonate deep in your heart. For online shopping, there should be audio clips of the bowls present. You will also know that the store has good quality products in store. This is
also how you know what to pick among those present.
You can expect a small bowl to make a higher pitched sound. The larger the bowl, the deeper the pitch to come out of it. You, therefore, need to choose as per your needs. There is also a need to look at what metals were used in the manufacturing process. The more the metals used, the better the quality shall be. You need to then ask more about the designs carved on the bowl. These usually mean something important. You need to find one that means something you can relate to.
You then need to know if the bowl is made by machines or hands. Settle only for handmade ones. You can now see the things that make singing bowls so special. If you find one made by a machine, it shall lack al unique characteristics, which is not what you wanted. They will also have low-quality sound, which defeat the purpose of buying a signing bowl in the first place.
It is after you have figured out these issues that you shall see something you like.
