The bell metal alloy used to create our tingshas produces a clear, long-lasting tone with superior sound quality. These cymbals are beautifully embossed with the eight auspicious symbols and have an antiqued finish. They are joined by a leather cord and have an old-world look.
Tingsha cymbals are used alongside singing bowls and other meditation instruments to produce healing sounds and raise energetic vibrations. Use them at the beginning and end of meditations to enhance focus and draw the mind to full and present awareness. In Feng Shui, they are used in the four corners of a room to draw positive energy in.
The Eight Auspicious Symbols, Ashtamangala, are symbols of good fortune said to represent the offerings made by the gods to Shakyamuni Buddha immediately after he gained enlightenment. They have been depicted in many forms of ancient art and represent abundant blessings.
