Beautiful Tibetan Tingsha, approx 65-70mm in diameter. The 8 auspicious symbols, also known as the eight symbols of happiness or the Ashtamangalas is carved onto the brass carrying the mantra along with the sound waves created when the Tingsha are struck.
Hand cast by Tibetan artisans using methods passed down from generations, these prayer chimes have been used for centuries by Tibetan Buddhists to prepare for meditation.
When the two pieces strike each other they produce a clear, pure, cleansing sound which can be used to focus the mind before and after meditation.
The Tingsha is a ritual artifact used by Buddhist Monks as well is in Shamanist and Hindu traditions. The Tingsha is also made of seven metals.
Tingsha create a meditative vibration but is more commonly used for calling one forth into the here and now. The striking sound of the Tingsha has the ability to call one forth as well as clearing any disturbing energies in the moment. The Tingsha brings clarity and spaciousness to any space.
Ceremonially, a Tingsha can be used to represent the beginning, ending or transition within a ceremony. Many Yoga instructors use Tingshas coming out of Savasana or the "meditation" part of the class.
Tingshas can also be used for space clearing to remove negative energies.
