For centuries, Buddhist monks have used the haunting sounds of the Himalayan singing bowl in meditation. By holding the bowl in one hand and tracing its rim with the mallet, the bowl vibrates to create a sustained bell-like sound. It can also be hit with the mallet like a gong.


This bowl is sand-cast brass, handcrafted by metal artisans in Kathmandu, Nepal, using a mold made of sand mixed with molasses. After cooling, the bowl is finished on a lathe to remove any rough spots, and polished to a smooth brass finish. The wooden striker has a leather wrap, which helps the player hold it with the light-but-firm grip needed to produce the clearest possible tones.


Presented in a Himalayan lokta-paper box with a brocade cushion for display. The top of the box is decorated with an endless knot, one of the "Eight Auspicious Symbols" found in Buddhism, Hinduism, and Jainism. There are many interpretations of the intricate symbol, but many of them focus on ideas of the design's lack of a beginning or end—connecting birth, life, death, and rebirth, or symbolizing the interconnectedness of widows and compassion.


Handcrafted in Nepal. 5 1/2" diam. x 2 1/2"H. Approximately 13 oz.

Comments about Himalayan Singing Bowl Set:

I have many Singing Bowls so I know a bad one when I hear it, this is awful, so bad I threw it in the garbage. I always trusted National Geographic but I won't buy anything else from them again.

An unexpected flash of color is your first clue—there is more to these traditional West African baskets than meets the eye. Using a traditional coiling technique, and working together with other women from their village, rural women from Senegal’s Wolof community braid a thick cattail grass called njodax with strips of recycled plastic. In the past, palm fronds would have been used with the njodax, but for several decades the women have been partial to inexpensive and colorful recycled plastics they can find in the city.
