History

How Tibetan singing bowls work and a little history.

The 'singing bowls' are traditionally manufactured out of an alloy having eight types of Metals containg mainly Copper and Tin. When struck or rubbed it produces a resonant humming tone. In the absence of any precise historical records, information pointing to the exact period in which these sorts of tone producing bowls were first manufactured has been lost with the passage of time. It is certain though, that the techniques required to produce utensils such as Bells, Gongs and Bowls of similar composition were well developed and in use in Asia at least 2500 years ago.The use of instruments such as Bells, Cymbals, Gongs etc., in meditation practices and other rituals are quite common.

Zen Practice and singing bowls.

In ZAZEN ( meditation) it is the strike of the tiny brass bowl by the Jiki-jitzu that clears the heart and mind,so the meditator may fall into a restful theta brain wave state. This occurs through entrainment effect of sound on the brain.

This use of brass singing bowls in Zendo's in Japan dates back to as long as we know about the practice of zen meditation. The Tibetans Monks also used the wave tones of the brass bowls in their temples for meditation healing practice.

In speaking about the the history of singing bowls, we would like to talk about the modern day sound therapist who have been researching and designing singing bowls and the courses that are being successfully used all over the world for the last 20 to 30 yrs.

It is important to understand the fact that there are antique looking Tibetan singing bowls but the sound is not best for therapy. The bowls that are good are very expensive. In the US anything that is 25 yrs old is considered and antique. In India 25 yrs ago is definitely not old.

The pioneers in developing the highest quality modern day singing bowls made with the purest alloys are Peter Hess and Sunil Kumar Sharma. For over 20 yrs Hess and Sharma worked together in this process. The outcome of all their research, teaching and product development has produced the finest singing bowls in the world.

Peter Hess is the founder and head Dean of the Peter Hess Academy in Germany, where they have a curriculum of studies using the special design therapy grade bowls. This is the school that sets the bar in terms of proven systems and research. The entire Hess family is owed the credit and deep gratitude for what he. Has brought to the world of sound massage.
