Singing bowls

The Tibetan singing bowls are an ancient means of meditation. The unique alloy of metals from which the singing bowls are made allows you to get a sound that is significantly different from the sound of all other musical instruments. Unlike synthesizers that produce outwardly similar sounds, the sound of Tibetan bowls is "charged" due to the friction of wood on metal. This has many important implications, such as the healing properties of the sounds of singing bowls or their ability to increase the receptivity of certain glands that act as "switches" between the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. The sound of Tibetan singing bowls consists of a limitless stream of overtones that form sound spirals that revolve around the "real" (main audible) sound. This interaction of overtones is based on the wave principle: two sound streams meet, form a standing wave and dissolve in the "ocean" of sounds. In contrast to the mechanical repetition characteristic of minimalism, here each such meeting is a separate, unique event, each slightly, almost imperceptibly different from the others. The transparent sound of singing bowls, rich in overtones, is a wonderful energy-rich music for meditation and healing. It is often used in massage.
