QUESTIONS, USES AND CARE OF A BOWL
A Tibetan Bowl or also known as a Hammered Bowl is a healing instrument of more than 5000 years old that originates in Tibet, these were created by one of the oldest shamanic cultures of our planet, the Bon Po. The ancestral knowledge that gave life to the bowls is uncertain, but it is believed that it was acquired by this shamanic culture through their channeling and rituals, others believe that it is technology from another star system. What is clear is that the true history of the bowls and the intentions of their first creators are lost in time.
The making of a bowl is an elaborate process that combines the skill of the craftsman, meditation and ancient science. In a first phase, the alloy of 7 metals that make up the bowls, which are: Copper, Tin, Zinc, Iron, Lead, Gold and Silver, are melted at more than 1000 degrees Celsius, the proportion of this alloy is 97% bronze (copper with tin) and the remaining 3% with the other metals mentioned above. Then, the molten metal is poured into different molds to cool, later this mixture of metals will take the form of a hockey puck and will be ready to go to the artisan process of forging and hammering.
In the forging and hammering phase, 5 artisans led by an expert craftsman will give between 500 and 7,000 hammer blows depending on the size of the bowl to be made. Every 30 or so hammer blows, the future bowls are returned to the fire to turn them red hot and continue with the hammering. Once enough has been hammered and the bowl begins to take shape, the bowl is left to the most experienced craftsman, who will take care of giving the bowl the desired thickness and shape. The creation of a good Tibetan bowl is the result of a conscious and meditative work of the craftsman who is making it. In his task, he must give the correct shape, thickness and angle to the walls of the Tibetan bowl, each hammer blow will influence the final result. To finish, the bowls are manually polished to remove the charred layer and reveal the characteristic gold/silver color of Tibetan bowls.
Our Hammered Bowls are made in Kathmandu, Nepal while our Quartz Bowls are made in China.
We have a relationship of several years with our suppliers and manufacturers, so we ensure the highest quality of bowls in Chile.

We bring a wide variety of Tibetan bowls, different in their method of construction, size and quality of sound.
Although there are several considerations that can be taken into account when choosing your bowl, we prefer to recommend that you choose it for the attraction you feel when you hear its sound. This will help to always captivate your attention, facilitating and guiding your meditation, therapy or ceremony.

The amount of metal, the diameter of the bowl and the thickness of its walls, will make the sounds of each bowl unique.
In general, a small bowl will have higher frequencies, therefore higher pitched sounds, which serve to energize and bring attention to the present.
As the size of the bowl increases, its frequency is lower, therefore its sounds are deeper, having relaxing and meditative effects.
The truth is that they are infinite, so listing them here is impossible, but we can try.

A Tibetan bowl does not require much care, but we recommend the following:
For the energetic cleanings of your bowl you can use different types of saumerios, with copal or palo santo.
However, with regular use and vibration of the bowl, it gradually flushes and cleans itself.
