The Singing Bowl






Tibetan Singing Bowl  -  the bowl  "sings" when tapped with a wooden hammer .


There is nothing in the world that does not speak to us. Everything and everybody reveals their own nature, character,and secrets continuously. The more we open up to our inner senses,the more we can understand the voice of everything.

  1. A veritable treasure trove of objects to make one's heart sing! I must admit, I do love trying to make a Tibetan bowl "sing" any time I come across one, stirring round and round to get the hum resounding through the store. It seems that some will respond more willingly than others to my touch, though perhaps that's more due to my own ineptitude.

    1. Louciao, I'm drawn to drums and can never resist sounding them when I find them on display. I have a book on the uses of singing bowls,however I usually just like to let the sound resonate around the house.

  3. Those materials are so pretty. How charming voices can be sound if they could talk! I like this title “The Singing Bowl”.
    I have been very busy these days, so it is easy to live without noticing the own nature of everything and hearing the voice of everything around me so much. The busy days make my eyes blunt. Thank you for sharing, Ruby.
    Have a good day!

    1. Tomoko, I like the expression "making the eyes blunt" - when we are busy it's so easy to ignore the subtleties of life. I've been visiting Tantallon Castle today,in flurries of snow....very atmospheric! I'll show the photos on my other blog soon. Thanks for your comments Tomoko,they are especially appreciated as I know you have lots to do. Happy Weekend!

  5. lots of sounds and colours here! A contrast too to the incredible monochrome that's drifting over the landscape here - but I'm enjoying it. It might reach the city too!

    1. I've been looking forward to snow but the scant covering which fell last last night seems to be melting in the sun. I even managed to miss any proper snow at Tantallon yesterday.....however,more is forcast I hear!

  6. I agree. When all our senses are opened up and we become more aware, we see, hear, and smell what we don’t usually notice. That ability gets lost in daily rush. I’m imagining how the bowl sings and what it talks to me.
