Bodhisattva Trading Co.

Antique Diatonic Quarter Tone 
Semi Double-blue 
Void Set #0136

- SOLD -

 

This is an authentic antique, Master-quality® 6-piece Tibetan singing bowl set based on the rims in diatonic quarter tone tuning.  All bowls are between 8 - 10  Hz of Western concert pitch in the keys of C, D, E, F, G, and A.

Musically, this is one of the finest sets Bodhisattva has ever assembled: the female overtones of the first four bowls all are +10 Hz., and the last two are both +8 Hz.  Most compelling, four out of six bowls are Voids, plus one Void-Yoni.
 

Double-blue Quality

Double-blues are the "Stradivarius" of singing bowls - the best of the best! Of the five criteria for Master-quality®, Double-blues surpass the rest of the collection in multiple criteria. Their sublime tones form palpable matrices in the air, and linger significantly longer than most singing bowls. The implications of a longer sustain in a healing or meditation context is key, because of the increased "mileage" you get from every strike or rim tone. Also important is the characteristically deeper penetration potential of these powerful pieces. They represent the top half of a percentage in quality of OUR collection. Double-blues can be purchased as stand alone pieces, and are the most requested material of Master-Healing Set collectors worldwide.
 

Void

An enigmatic, premium quality bowl with geometric design patterns and construction which were made with remarkable consistency from the 15th through the 19th Centuries. They feature a ribbon of dots surrounded by small circles on the exterior wall under the lip. This was an ancient, sacred geometric symbol. It was first seen in astrology as the Sun sign. It represented "the one becoming aware of his or her source". In a Himalayan, or Tibetan Buddhist context, we believe this symbol represented recognition of the Void – known in Buddhism as the doctrine of dependent origination. Each individual is inseparable from the All.  The dot is the contracted circle; the circle is the expanded dot: as above, so below.
 

Void-yoni

A Void-Yoni is a Void bowl decorated with downward-facing triangles demarking the four directions.  In a Himalayan context, the downward facing triangle signified the female principle.
