We are an online retailer of fine imported Tibetan singing bowls, Buddha statues, and other meditation/Buddhist products. We also strive to provide helpful information on all sorts of topics that relate to singing bowls, meditation, and improving the human condition. But if you've come here to buy a singing bowl (aka himalayan bowl, meditation bowl, etc...) we offer some of the highest quality bowls around. Furthermore, if you accidentally stumbled upon this page and are wondering, "What is a singing bowl?" well, it's pretty much an upside down bell used with meditation or Tibetan Buddhist ritual. It rests on its bottom and is either struck, or rubbed with a mallet, causing an extremely sophisticated resonance. Primarily associated with Buddhism, these zen-like bowls have been in use since around the 10th Century AD and are mostly made of bronze, copper, and/or tin, although there is a mixture of 7 metals that is considered the most authentic type of meditation bowl.
