How to Use a Singing Bowl? The soothing sound of a singing bowl adds a whole new dimension to your life. Spiru is here to guide you!
Originally, singing bowls are from the Tibetan Buddhist areas, close to the Himalayas. As a result, they are also called Himalayan Singing Bowls. However, they are more commonly known as Tibetan shells or medicine bells. It is believed that the sound of a singing bowl could potentially have a healing effect, which is why they are often used during Meditation or singing bowl therapy. Therefore, they are also considered meditation bowls.
Manufacturing singing bowls is a complicated and lengthy process. It is a real work of art. Each bowl is authentic and therefore has its own sound and tone. The singing bowls at Spiru each produce a special and long-lasting sound. They are all of the highest possible quality. Some bowls have a short response time, which means that the sound can be heard immediately after the bowl is struck with a mallet. Other bells have a longer response time, which depends on the size and thickness of the bowl. Looking for singing bowls To Buy? Spiru has got you covered!
It is important to make sure that the bowl is of good quality. Considering they are very fragile to begin with, a bowl that is of poor quality may break or damage quickly.

Singing bowls are often bought in combination with a mallet. The mallets are available in all shapes and sizes. Whether you want an Extra Large Singing Bowl, a petite one, or a Zen Singing Bowl, our mallets match every single one. The bowls damage easily, especially if it is a crystal singing bowl or an antique bowl, and this could ruin the tone and length of its pure sounds. For this reason, we always recommend ordering a Cushion or Coaster in addition to the bowl.
People who are relatively new to the bowls or crystal bowls may need a little push in the right direction. There are plenty of situations where a bowl can be played. Listening to the sounds may help to lift someone’s spirit and potentially remove blockages. Therefore, a bowl is often played during the following practices:
During a meditation session, a bowl can be useful for various reasons. For example, you could listen to the sound the bowl makes. Breathe on the rhythm of the sound or do a visualisation exercise. This kind of Singing Bowl Meditation can help balance the mind, body, and spirit. Another common meditation is a Tibetan Singing Bowl Meditation, which is like a normal meditation but the focus is more on the breathing for stress relief.
The bowls are even used during yoga. Most often, they are used at the beginning and end of a yoga practice. Exercises are done based on the sound. Sometimes the singing bowl is used to bring positive energy into the atmosphere. The sound has the power to add a whole new dimension to the yoga session and may help the yogis feel more down to earth.
During rituals, singing bowls are often sounded to cleanse the energy. It can even serve as an offering bowl during a ritual. For example, during a full moon ritual, herbs and spices can be placed in the bowl to perform a manifestation ritual. The bowl could even function as a fruit basket. However, make sure you have a singing bowl big enough to perform such rituals.
