Displaying two dragons encircling each cymbal, this Tingsha, or cymbals, are a lovely tool used within meditation. Measuring just under 3" in diameter, these Tingsha cymbals have been cast from brass with the undersides being engraved with Tibetan symbols.
A traditional aspect of Tibetan meditation and prayer, the prayer wheel is traditionally used with a mantra, or prayer, to aid in seeking the deeper rewards of meditation.
With your mantra within, the cap is then replaced before being carefully rotated in a clockwise fashion, with the brass weight strung upon it spinning it in a clockwise rotation as you focus upon the enlightenment found within meditation.
The sacred sound from a meditation gong or bell signals the beginning and end of meditation in Buddhist temples everywhere.
The gong's sound at the beginning of meditation helps to center focus inward and guide one toward silent serenity. This wonderful Bell shows Kwan Yin - Goddess of Compassion and chinese characters for happiness, good fortune and prosperity. Born a man, living as a mortal, by His own exertion Buddha attained the supreme state of perfection called Buddhahood, and without keeping His Enlightenment to Himself, He proclaimed to the world the latent possibilities and the invincible power of the human mind.
Singing bowls were traditionally used throughout Asia as part of Buddhist meditation practices. Used for meditation and prayer, the singing bowl is often used within Tibetan Buddhism to accompany mudras, prayers, and hymns.

A few weeks ago, I changed my morning routine so that I am getting up even earlier than I was previously, so that I can do yoga three days a week. Yesterday, I did actual mending, sewing up all the torn clothing on my mending pile, making things new and useable again.

Last night I spent several hours in the emergency room with another friend who has been in a lot of pain for about three weeks, helping to advocate for her to get the help she needs so that she can mend.
The other thing I’ve been helping to mend is communication, between friends and also a bit with my husband. The problem is, when you are hurting, it can be really hard to communicate openly, because the pain makes it so you don’t want to listen to what the other person has to say. This process leads children into the Scripture scene, where they meet Jesus personally and are encouraged to talk and listen to him – which is prayer. A concentrated focus on an aspect of your life, or an object or sound increases awareness of the present moment, reduces stress, promote relaxation, and enhances personal and spiritual growth. Meditation has no dogma, and there is nothing you must believe in order to learn and use the art of meditation.
It relaxes you, quiets the mind and enables you to perceive clearly from a state of well being.
The Tingsha are traditionally used by holding the leather cord that connects them at their center and swinging the cymbals together so that hey ring loudly or holding them together with a gentle tap for a softer ringing tone. Striking the gong at the end of meditation will bring strength and happiness into your day. When it is rung gentle with its mallet, a vibration can be felt in the brass that is said to help remove negative energy, and find peace within meditation. The vibration that is felt in the brass when it is struck and played is often held to help remove negative energy and help find peace within meditation, aligning the chakras, and other such ritual practice. Kwan Yin has her hand raised in the traditional mudra (gesture) of protection and assurance, and carries a vase filled with the tears of compassion. Meditation at bedtime encourages the child to release the day and aid a good night's sleep.

Pleasant ringing from the Dripu & the absorption of evil from the Dorje will create a solid foundation for a balanced life.
