Tibetan singing bowls Origin

Tibetan Singing bowl is used in some Buddhist religious practices to complete periods of meditation and chanting. Struck and singing bowls are generally used for music making, meditation, chakra healing, and relaxation, as well as for personal spirituality. They have become popular with music therapists, sound healers, including yoga practitioners.

There is evidence that the metal bell originated in China, with the earliest known Shang dynasty (16th–11th centuries BCE) bells being among the oldest bronze objects found in China. They probably originated from grain scoops of standard capacity (the word Chung or grain measure is used in many ancient texts to mean a bell).

Early bronze standing bells called nao embody some of the highest technical skills of Chinese civilization and describe the earliest known form of chiming bell. Taking the shape of hollow-stemmed goblets with a curved rim nao was made in sizes varying between 8 and 50 cm.

They were mounted on their stem, with rim uppermost, and struck on the outside with a mallet. Nao from southern China was produced as single specimens, while in the north they were produced in chimed sets of three. Some were constructed such that striking at two different points would produce different ringing tones.
