Best Sounding Path to Peaceful Awakening

Prayer Bowls, Global Treasures and Unique Gifts

Stephen Texiera

Global Treasures and Unique Gifts owner Ramesh Thapaliya is always happy to show visitors how to make his prayer bowls sing: Hold the bowl in the palm of the hand, allow the body of the bowl to vibrate freely, rub the outside rim of the bowl with a wooden stick, increasing speed as the bowl begins to vibrate and make mesmerizing music. Types of standing bells, singing bowls are used worldwide for meditation. As Thapaliya noted with a smile, their sound is believed to evoke the Kundalini chakra. Which is cool, because, these days, making prayer bowls sing might just be the best hope for a peaceful awakening.
