Tibetan hand cymbals called Ting-sha or Ding sha, are apart of the celestial orchestra, played by goddesses of dance, music and song. The Tingsha are individually handcrafted by the ancient Tibetan method of sand-casting. After casting, each individual Tingsha is skillfully tuned by hammering around the thick outer rim to create a perfectly matching pitch for each pair. The bell metal used in the Tingsha is made of a pure bronze alloy of copper and tin with a white metal component of zinc and nickel. This is what gives the chimes their perfect pitch clarity
There are either swirling dragons OR Chinese characters patterned into the Tingsha. The Dragon is one of the most powerful and revered symbols in Feng Shui. Dragons represent strength, goodness, and the spirit of change and transformation. Qi is described as the Cosmic Breath of the dragon. A well placed dragon can inspire and uplift you throughout your own personal growth and challenges. The Chinese characters represent the free flow of Qi energy and allow for the crystal resonance to sing out.
These bells measure 2 1/2″ in diameter with a 15″ cord between them. They come in a beautiful pouch.
Tibetan Buddhists use sound to bring one’s attention to the present. Hand-tuned, the sound is resonant and penetrating, and is a perfect vehicle to draw one’s mind into focus. The sound is known also to be spiritually cleansing. Dragons can be placed in your living room, home office, or study; in the East or Southeast corner or anywhere the metal element is required.
