Tingshas are composed of two handmade bell cymbals that are used in meditation, healing, aura and environment cleansing. They are sounded by tapping each small cymbal together at the edge to produce a crystal pure, bell tone. Tingshas bells have been used for centuries for religious ceremonies in the Himalayan regions, and it is believed that the Tingsha tones awaken awareness and stimulate the healing process.
These tingsha bells feature the raised mantra “Om Mani Padme Hum” and measure about 7-7.5cm diameter. The mantra “Om Mani Padme Hum” is probably the most widely known Tibetan Buddhist mantra. Literally meaning “Hail the jewel in the lotus”, this six syllable mantra is an invocation of Avlokiteshvara who is invoked as the saviour and the Protector from danger.
