Singing bowls

The vibrating sound of these metal vessels has long since spread beyond its homeland, the Himalayan mountains. Primarily used in the Western world as a therapeutic instrument for stress relief, it is still more than that in its Nepalese homeland: singing bowls are instruments for meditation, tantra ceremonies and healing rituals. Many of these bowls are handmade in small family businesses. Each family has its own little secrets and makes bowls for a specific purpose.
