Mani means "jewel" in Tibetan, although we believe the style originates from India. We started looking for these only in the last four or five years. They are the only example we know of self-amplifying, with a conical shape. They tend to produce a nearly pure sine wave, both at the wall and at the edge.
Our Antique Mani Bowls were handcrafted in Kathmandu, Nepal by master craftsmen who have passed down the ancient knowledge of bowl making from generation to generation. Its elaboration combines the skill of the craftsman, the correct proportion of metals and deep meditative states necessary to give each bowl the perfect shape and thickness.
The sound of all our bowls has a great richness of harmonics and a vibration that remains for long periods of time, in small bowls you will find higher tones that bring our attention to the present and as the bowl grows in diameter, the The tone is lower, inviting us to enter a deeper state of meditation.
Playing your bowl is very intuitive. Anyone can do it! It just requires some practice and patience. To feel its effects, just hit it subtly with the rubbing stick and let it resonate for as long as you deem convenient, in that time lapse you can bring it closer to your head or chakra that you want to level. Bowls can also be made to "sing" or "beat". If a very high-pitched sound begins to sound, you should release a little pressure and place the stick more horizontally, so that it rubs against the "waist" of the bowl and not so much on the edge.
