Tibetan Dragon Design Tingsha Cymbals
The OM Shoppe Tibetan Tingsha Cymbals with Dragon Design is a reminder that for thousands of years and across cultures, dragons have captured the imagination of human kind. Fascinating to young and old alike, dragons guard treasures, present danger and a help us remember our ability to overcome adversity and tame our shadows. These lovely Dragon Tingshas capture the power and majesty of dragon mythology. These Tingshas can be used in sound healing applications or musical applications. Traditionally used by Tibetan Buddhists to mark the beginning and end of meditation. They are also used by a Buddhist master 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.
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 by 2) holding the leather cord at its center and swinging the chimes together so that they strike each other strongly (loud sound).
