This beautiful dark blue singing bowl has flower with mantras in an etched gold design on the interior and a bold golden band on the exterior. Singing bowls are traditionally used throughout Asia as part of Buddhist meditation practice, and are often used in mindfulness classes in schools. They are a type of bell, but rather than hanging, they sit with the bottom surface resting. Their sides and rims vibrate to produce a wonderful sound when tapped or rubbed gently with a wooden object. Handmade by skilled artisans working with Mahaguthi Craft with Conscience, one of our fair trade partners in Nepal.
