About Flat Singing Bowls
Just as the name suggests, these bowls are flatter and more shallow than traditional singing bowls. They are typically hand-casted with multiple metals, including brass and bronze. Like the machine-lathed bowls, they are often adorned with etchings and engravings for a specific purpose.
Creating a contemplative and soothing sound, Tibetan singing bowls are used for meditation, holistic healing, balancing of the body's chakras, reiki, relaxation, stress reduction or simply as wonderful piece of art. It is believed that mantras chanted during the making of a singing bowl are released into the universe when the bowl is played. Traditionally used for meditation, their sound can mark the beginning or end of a meditation period. They can be played during meditation to focus the mind. Singing Bowls are also commonly used for chakra healing, balancing the energy centers of the body.
