Meditation Tingsha Bells ~ clear your mind ~ begin your practice.
Tingsha Bells are small cymbals used in prayer and rituals by Tibetan Buddhist practitioners.
Two cymbals are joined together by a leather strap or chain.
The cymbals are struck together producing a clear and high pitched tone.
Typical sizes range from 2.5–4 inches in diameter.
Tingsha are very thick and produce a unique long ringing tone.
Antique tingsha were made from special bronze alloys that produce harmonic overtones.
In high quality tingsha, both cymbals will match—the tones are identical or nearly identical.
While they are commonly found today in musical recordings and yoga classes,
their real function is as a religious ritual tool.
