Traditional Singing Bowls date back 5000 years and originally come from Nepal, India and Tibet.
The furthest back we can trace Singing Bowls is with the shamanic Bonpo religion of the Himalayas, where shamans would use the bowls to journey with sacred sound.
With the arrival of Buddhism, they then incorporated them into the religion, so now they can be found in temples all over Asia. Different countries have their own styles of Singing Bowls as well as different villages in the Himalayas all produce their own unique style.
The traditional hand beaten singing bowls help to induce a meditative or sleep state in the brain caused by the pulsing sounds they emit after playing around the edge. Each hand beaten singing bowl is a unique piece hand crafted by beating a flat sheet of metal into a bowl shape.
Below show a video of how the Hand Beaten Singing Bowls are made.
