To enter awareness of Zen is to wake up to the here and now. As the vibration of the chime begins, our awareness comes into focus. We are in the moment of the ring as suddenly as the sound begins. Our hand cast chimes are made by Tibetan metal craft artisans living in India, and our Table Chimes are excellent for use in meditation, teaching settings, musical applications or as an attractive table top decoration.
Om Mani Padme Hum, translated as hail to the jewel in the lotus, is the ancient Tibetan mantra or prayer for realizing perfect wisdom and compassion. To simply hear or see the mantra, even without knowing its ultimate meaning, will bring positive karmic results. This traditional rendering shows the mantra in a six petal stylized lotus, one of the Eight Auspicious Symbols commonly associated with the process of becoming a buddha. The hand-cast tingsha is painted with the lotus design by a skilled Nepali artisan. Hang a cymbal from each hand and gently strike the sides together to release the mantra's cosmic vibration. Comes with its own gift box. Made in Nepal.
