Traditional singing bowls are constructed of a 7 metal alloy which, when struck or rubbed, produce a resonant humming tone conducive to meditation practice. Actually, the use of instruments such as bells, cymbals, and gongs in Tibetan and other schools of meditative practices and other rituals are quite common, but few offer as rich a sound as singing bowls. The concepts of sound and vibration as the means of creation and transformation are common doctrinal features of Buddhism and Hinduism, as well as many other world religions, including, surprisingly, the Judeo-Christian tradition.

They are also a lovely reminder of the energy that these bowls provide, while not taking up much space in one's environment.
