• Finger cymbals or tingshas are the beautiful musical bells used for prayer, chanting, ritual offerings and ceremonies in Hindu and Buddhist religious practice. The sound is penetrating and purposely dissonant unlike the harmonic overtones of the Tibetan singing bowls. When the two pieces slightly tapping them together, they produce a clear, pure and cleansing sound which can be used to focus the mind before and after meditation. Or by holding the leather cord at its center and swinging the chimes together so that they strike each other strongly to make loud sound.
• Tingshas are traditionally used by Tibetan Buddhist to mark the beginning and end of meditation. They are also used by the Buddhist master to bring the student back into focus when his mind wanders during the meditation. The sound of the tingsha is very clear and loud. They are also used to prepare for healing, yoga, space clearing and sound therapy treatment. Undoubtedly, it’s a perfect Buddhism gift.
