Lingam Singing Bowls are without doubt the rarest of all Himalayan singing bowls.  They are also among the oldest, with some dating back to at least the 16th century.  They were made for ritual and ceremonial use, and have an amazing purity of sound.   Named after the male principle, they are easily identified by a conical protrusion, the lingam, in the centre of the basin.  This is usually matched by a navel-like impression on the flat underside when the bowl is turned over.  Bowls come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, but frequently have a low and shallow profile.  The smallest antique lingam bowl in our collection (not for sale) stands just over 1½ inches high (4 cm) and has a diameter of 4 ½ inches (11 ½ cm), while a large lingam bowl might measure 10 inches (25cm) or more across and weigh as much as 4 ½ pounds (2 kilos).

This is a great singing bowl from Nepal with a wonderful finish with a nice sustain. The base note is E3 which is associated with our solar plexus chakra and our ability to connect with our energetic and solar center. All our bowls are hand selected to ensure only the highest quality makes out of our door!

The bowls have some interesting esoteric qualities behind them depending on the base note. Here is what this bowl has behind it!

Astrology: Leo

Color: Yellow

Planet: Sun

Place on the body: Small Intestines
