Perfect for bringing everyone back together in a workshop or retreat.
Tibetan Ting Sha chimes are traditionally used by Tibetan Buddhists to mark the beginning and the end of a meditation. They are also used by a Buddhist masters to bring a student back into focus when his mind wanders during meditation. Our chimes are made in Nepal of an alloy of bronze, iron and zinc. They are embossed with the eight Tibetan good luck symbols.
The sound is penetrating and purposely dissonant unlike the harmonic overtones of the Tibetan singing bowls. You can chime them by either 1) slightly tapping them together (soft sound) or 2) by holding the leather cord at its center and swinging the chimes together so that they strike each other strongly (loud sound).
