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.
