Tibetan Singing Bowls are used in the Tibetan cultures and are well renowned as an ancient sound healing practice that addresses physical and psychological issues through the use of sound and vibration.
The mantra Om Mani Padme Hum is inscribed on the outer rim of these bowls, which is the mantra that all Buddhists live by. This mantra encompasses all of the 84,000 teachings of the Dharma of Buddhism. As per Dalai Lama, chanting Om Mani Padme Hum can transform any impurities in body, speech, and mind into the pure state of the body.
Furthermore, the sound curated by these sacred Tibetan Singing Bowls facilitate emotional balancing and alignment of the 7 Chakras which are the main energy centers of the body, namely: The Root Chakra (Muladhara), The Sacral Chakra (Svadhishthana), The Solar Plexus Chakra (Manipura), The Heart Chakra (Anahata), The Throat Chakra (Vishuddha), The Third Eye Chakra (Ajna) and The Crown Chakra (Sahasrara)
To Align your 7 Chakras, you can use the Tibetan Singing Bowl to invite harmony and peace into your heart. Additionally, you can cleanse/smudge your space and indulge in an inner calmness meditation accompanied by Seven Chakras Crystal Set that can be used to unblock each Chakra.

There are many benefits and reasons for using Tibetan Singing Bowls.
Tibetan bowls or sound bowls are a very powerful source of sound therapy. These Tibetan Singing Bowls are made of 5 different metals and the benefit is received through sound healing vibrations and frequencies.
Using sound bowls can help the brain in switching from the usual Beta state to the Theta state which, for instance, is more beneficial for the human body.
Tibetan Bowls are also used in various practices such as:
- Chakra balancing
- Space cleansing
How can you play the Tibetan Singing Bowls?
- Hold your Tibetan Singing Bowl on the palm of your outstretched left hand. Try and point your fingers downwards.
- Hold the wooden mallet with the fingertips of your right hand and your fingers pointing downwards.
- Gently tap the mallet on the outer rim of the bowl and then maintain contact while moving the mallet around the bowl. Alternatively, you can also start without the tap on the bowl but this is usually achieved after some practice.
- Once you start moving the mallet around the bowl, you should hear a low sound. You can increase or lower the speed and you will notice a change in the sound that the bowl creates. Move the mallet at a speed that seems pleasant to you.
- Always move the mallet in a clockwise direction as this is the direction in which our chakras move and also the correct spiritual direction to move in.
- Practice makes perfect so do not give up if you cant maintain the contact for long or the sound does not appeal to you just yet.
