Singing Bowl Tibetan Meditation Review
The singing bowl, or Tibetan meditation bowl is absolutely gorgeous. It is a deep colored bowl with a bright gold hand painted design. The bowl is rather heavy, especially at its base. The base is very sturdy whereas the sides are very light and airy feeling (although unbending when force is applied).
There is a mat and a mallet that are included when you order this. The mat also helps deaden the sound when you are transporting it. The mallet can be used in two ways. You can strike the singing bowl or you can run the mallet along the rim of the Tibetan meditation bowl to get a beautiful ringing sound.
When I first came across a singing bowl, I was actually in a church. They had a much larger one than the one I now currently have. The church used it as a time of personal prayer. The bowl was first struck and then the rim was rubbed for one minute, struck once more, and then all was silent other than the singing bowl. It allowed for reflection and for prayer.
This bowl has the same exact capabilities. The volume of sound that it emits is not that of the larger one, but the tone and quality of the sound is just as absolutely beautiful as its larger version. It has been a great way for me to help catch myself when dealing with my twins, who always manage to get into harebrained shenanigans. They both know that when I get out the bowl and let the singing bowl ring, that I want a moment to collect myself, and slowly they have started to take the moment to collect themselves as well. So for that reason alone, I would highly recommend this. Also, the sound is so beautiful and pure, it is hard to stay frustrated or angry upon hearing it.
