These Tingsha are from Nepal, and are handmade in brass by craftsmen trained in the art of making Tingsha. They have a rich sound when struck together and a long sustain. These metal bells are 2 and 3/4 inches across. They can be used as a focal point of meditation, or they can be used to simply mark the starting and ending points of meditation.
Tingsha are often used in a house cleansing ceremony, where they are carried in hand from place to place around the house, then stuck so that the energy released by the Tingsha bells will help to purify the room.
