At first glance, this beauty appears to be simply a VERY large polished singing bowl. But in the center, hand carved with traditional hammer and chisels, you will find an engraved OM in Sun! While this singing bowl is not quite large enough to be a foot bowl, it is a very powerful bowl with strong deep vibrations that travel well through the floor.The sound is large, too. with rich, deep tones. The intricate binaural beat on the overtones feels almost syncopated, drawing you in and inviting relaxation. The sustain is incredible, very long yet still complex even as it fades. AND it is a carefully measured Heaven of Sound certified instrument, too!
Very large and giant bowls are suitable for groups as well as private meditation, as the low vibrations travel well through the floor. These huge bowls must be set on a ring or suitable pad to protect them and the surface they rest on. They require a soft, yet heavy, mallet or beater. See the recommended accessories tab for help in selection of accessories.
While you could stand in this very large bowl, and we know you will be tempted to, it isn't big enough to be stable with a person standing in it. To prevent falls, we recommend sitting in a chair with your feet in the bowl while playing (smaller feet will fit in this bowl, or you can sit with just the balls of your feet in the bowl, being careful not to touch the sides, wich will stop the sound). The vibrations are extremely powerful and can cause disorientation and loss of balance resulting in a dangerous fall. Plus, seated, you can relax and enjoy the experience.
