About the Sound Sample:
IMPORTANT-- Use your EARPHONES to enjoy & experience the true sound of this singing bowl ! (Especially with laptops, tablets, mobile and cellphones as their speakers cannot accurately reproduce the richness and wide dynamic range of a singing bowl's tones.)
First you'll hear the sound of this singing bowl struck on its upper outside edge with a Tibetan-wool padded mallet. This blends into the second sound which is the same singing bowl played around the outside rim with the included leather mallet, then around the rim with the wood side of the mallet, and last the struck tone again but this time a little softer.

"In our beautiful meeting house, we have used five singing bowls for several years during worship. We use them for several things but the most common use is to call the congregation to prayer and meditation. Week after week, people hear the singing bowls until there is a close connection between the singing bowls and being in the meeting house, sacred space, and also being with the congregation, a beloved community. I also use them as I lead prayer and meditation groups.
