This powerful meditation bowl and box is designed with a traditional rendering of the sacred mantra Om Mani Padme Hum, translated as hail to the jewel in the lotus.

To simply hear or see the mantra, even without knowing its ultimate meaning, is thought to bring positive karmic results. The mantra is depicted inside a lotus, one of the Eight Auspicious Symbols commonly associated with the process of becoming a buddha. Bowl comes with its own striker made of wood.
This handcast meditation bowl is carefully hand tuned for clarity of sound but not intended for use as a traditional singing bowl.

In a healing, the chacapa is rubbed and rattled over or near the patient’s body to capture or brush out the spirit intrusion.

Our chapacas ship directly from Peru standard mail and take 3-4 weeks.
