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 the included Tibetan-wool padded mallet. This blends into the second sound which is the same singing bowl played around the outside rim with a leather mallet, then around the rim with the wood side of the mallet, and last the struck tone again. For critical listening please use earphones.
Lingam Singing Bowl:
Considered the earliest and rarest of all the Tibetan / Himalayan singing bowls, this type has a conical protrusion rising out of the center of the bowl's interior basin and usually a navel-like impression on the bottom exterior of the bowl. The term "Lingam" comes from the Sanskrit term for phallus. The Lingam has been worshipped by Hindus as the formless aspect of Shiva for millennia. In the Buddhist, Bon, Hindu and Jain traditions this protrusion and the accompanying multiple ring lines surrounding it are also symbolic of Mt. Kailash (Tibetan: "Gang Rinpoche") and the practice of circumambulating this sacred mountain in western Tibet. Believed to be a three-dimensional representation of the Tibetan Axis Mundi, or bindu (the point where one merges with the divine and loses perspective that one is separate from it).
