While some mudrās involve the entire body, most are performed with the hands and fingers. A mudrā is a spiritual gesture and an energetic seal of authenticity employed in the iconography and spiritual practice of Indian religions and traditions of Dharma and Taoism.
In accordance with ancient traditions, singing bowsl are made of a special seven metal alloy, with each metal representing a part of the astrological universe. Gold is for the Sun, silver for the Moon, mercury for Mercury, copper for Venus, iron for Mars, tin for Jupiter and lead for Saturn. This alloy produces a powerful harmonic resonance when played. Being in this sonic bath is conducive to meditation, yoga, massage and other bodywork. Of course, it can also be used an impressive decorative item in any home.

Tibetan Nuns Project
Tibetan Nuns Project (TNP) was founded in 1987 to provide education and humanitarian aid to refugee nuns from Tibet and the Himalayan regions of India. Tibetan Nuns Project began when a group of 66 nuns appeared in Dharamsala, India. The 66 women had walked across the Himalayas from eastern Tibet to His Holiness the Dalai Lama's newly adopted homeland in northern India. They knew no one and were exhausted and ill. They wearily camped out in downtown Dharmsala, hope their long journey was near the end.
The Tibetan community immediately responded: Tibetan Women's Association organized emergency assistance to provide their basic needs and the Tibetan Nuns Project was born. Working with the Tibetan Women's Association and the Tibetan Government in Exile Department of Religion and Culture of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, TNP sought to finding a long-term solution to the problem of how to secure housing, medical care and most importantly, education for refugee nuns. A sponsorship program was created that continues to generate worldwide support.
Today, TNP sponsors over 650 nuns. TNP has established two nunneries [Shugsep and Dolma Ling] and provides sponsorship support for the nuns of Geden Choeling and Tilokpur in Dharmasala. Other building and housing projects include Sherab Choeling Nunnery in LaHaul-Spiti. More room is always need for newly arrived nuns seeking aid and asylum.
