Singing Bowl with Buddha Design 8.5"
SKU:
FSAC0050-8.5

Singing bowls are a type of musical instrument classified as a standing bell.  The sides and rim of the bell vibrate to produce sound when a wooden stick is rubbed around it’s circumference.  Large bowls ring in a low tone where smaller ones tend to have a higher pitch.  Singing bowls were traditionally used throughout Asia as part of Buddhist meditation practice.  They usually signify the beginning/end of a meditation session or during chanting of mantras.  Singing bowls are excellent tools for meditation.  They produce a peaceful and calming tone and can help with concentration during meditation.  By concentrating on the tone and motion of making the bowl sing, you can stop your mind from wandering and be more present during breathing exercises.  Our bowls come in different sizes and with different patterns.  Inscribed on the side of the bowl, the mantra Om Mani Padme Hung can be found. We suggest trying each bowl to find one that complements your body energy since each bowl will be slightly different.  Bowls are made of brass and comes with a wooden stick to make the bowl sing.

 唵嘛呢叭咪吽 ཨོཾ་མ་ཎི་པདྨེ་ཧཱུྂ༔ or ཨོཾ་མ་ཎི་པདྨེ་ཧཱུྂ Om ma ni pad me hum
The Mantra
First, the nature of a mantra and what it means:
In the Buddhist tradition, special words are repeated over and over again until they begin to gather a certain “emptiness”. This is not “emptiness” in the traditional sense where we imagine an experience of nothing…rather it is experiencing ourselves in the moment without the usual attachment of ego.
We become free or “empty” of everything but an inner awareness.
That form of enlightened awareness gives us the intuitive knowledge to save ourselves from suffering.
The 6 Syllables and Their Relationship to Suffering.
Interestingly, each of the 6 syllables has certain Sanskrit meanings that are important.
These oppose certain internal forces that cause suffering.
Om (ohm)- Om is the sound or “vibration” of the universe. This sound is the most important of all; but in the context of chanting and mantras, it is meant destroy attachments to ego and establish generosity.
Ma (mah)- Removes the attachment to jealousy and establishes ethics.
Ni (nee)- Removes the attachment to desire and establishes patience.
Pad (pahd)- Removes the attachment to prejudice and establishes perseverance.
Me (meh)- Removes the attachment to possessiveness and establishes concentration.
Hum (hum)- Removes the attachment to hatred and establishes wisdom.
