Tibetan Singing Bowls

While searching for a gift for my sister I came across a site that had Tibetan Singing Bowls. I never heard of bowls that sing so I did a little research into their history. 

Singing bowls were historically used in India to help align the chakras (spiritual energy) and  assist in meditation. During ancient times Buddha brought crystal singing bowls from India to Tibet while spreading his teachings of Buddhism. Since then the bowls have been used in monasteries by monks for religious rituals to reach deeper levels of meditation, relaxation and healing. There are rumors that it's forbidden for monks to speak about the singing bowls. There are also rumors that the bowls are used in secret rituals, giving them the ability to travel to different dimensions of space and time. 

Tibetan Singing Bowls are considered a powerful spiritual tool and have migrated from the monastery into the homes of practitioners world-wide. Aside from meditation they're also used for Relaxation, Massage, Yoga, Stress Reduction and Healing. To learn more about the singing bowls and their unusual history go to or click the link.
