About the Sound Sample

You will hear the sound of the bowl struck on its upper outside edge with a Tibetan-wool padded  mallet.
 

Bowl Type: “Buddha”

A medium sized Thadobati variety singing bowl. The base, while still round, is not as sloped as a High-wall. We named this style after the Buddha because one of the earliest depictions of the Buddha, a 1st century BCE stone bas-relief from the Ghandaran period, features the Buddha holding a bowl of this shape. This theme, called “The Offering of the Four Bowls”, was also found in a later, 2nd – 3rd century CE bas-relief as well. The provenance of this shape generally tends to come from India.

 

Package Includes:

  • a Himalayan hardwood leather-padded mallet.
  • Tips and Information Brochure: historical information, general metallurgical analysis, how to hold the mallet, playing around the rim, and advanced techniques.
  • Optional Tibetan silk-brocade Singing Bowl Cushion (shown above) in your choice of Tibetan Red, Royal Blue, or Plum for an additional $16.00

 

You will receive the exact bowl you see and hear.
