Crystal healing singing bowls > Tibetan Singing BowlsTibetan singing bowls have been around for several centuries and most famously associated with buddhist monks, historically made throughout Asia, especially Nepal, China and Japan. They are closely related to decorative bells made along the Silk Road from the Near East to Western Asia. Today they are made in Nepal, India, Japan, China and Korea.
Singing bowls are played by striking the rim of the bowl with a padded mallet. They can also be played by the friction of rubbing a wood, plastic, suede or leather wrapped mallet around the rim of the bowl to emphasize the harmonic overtones and to create a continuous 'singing' sound.
Both antique and new bowls are widely used as an aid for meditation.
