The singing bowl was originated from pre-Buddhist Shamanic Bon Po culture in Himalayas, and it was often called “Tibetan” Singing Bowl, the bowls were made in various countries as Bhutan, Nepal, India and Tibet.
Traditionally, the bowls were made of seven sacred metals, corresponding to the seven planets of GOLD- Sun, Mercury- Mercury, Iron- Mars, Lead- Saturn, Silver- Moon, Copper- Venus and Tin- Jupiter. Indigenously was mentioned that, Iron was from meteorites found in the top of Himalayan Mountain, Metal was from the heaven. Unlike some of the Tibetan sound devices that were well documented, as part of Tibetan Buddhist Cannon, there was absolutely nothing written about the singing bowls even though they have been found in both monasteries and private homes.
The Tibetans were mentioned the bowls were simply bowls for food container, (traditionally, Tibetan pregnancy women would eat out of these bowls so they received a homeopathic dose of the metal elements to maintain their mineral intake). It was hard to believe that the handmade object that vibrating each substances and simultaneous the tones as its own consistent frequency and sustaining a range of vibrations were intended as a container for food.
On the deeper understanding in Tibetan culture, the Singing bowls were not just for a food container, the highest Lamas were using them as ritual offerings to their Gods and Deities, and some folks was said; the highest Lamas used these bowls for their rituals to travel another level of consciousness, but it was forbidden to talk about these bowls, even within the monasteries itself.
The sound or vibration of singing bowls was pure and universal, that allow the frequency of the sound vibrating the water in our body, it helps the body to relax and slow down the busy mind to clam down, allowing an inner peace. Singing bowls could be a good tool for meditation practice or induce the state of relaxation. Nowadays most of healers or spa industries had integrated the singing bowl to induce deeper state of relaxation prior performing their treatments, as the sound vibration will vibrate water in our body at the cellular level internally.
