Our Tingsha bells are comprised of two small cymbals; 7cm in diameter, joined together by a leather strap. They come wrapped in cloth to prevent chiming and chipping, in a carry bag.
These bells are often used by Tibetan Buddhist practitioners in their prayers and in rituals. When struck, these Tingsha bells produce a distinctive tone, which is why they are used in space clearing and energy balancing.
Originating in Tibet, they are usually known as Taa in Nepali.
The Tingsha cymbals are among the many ritual instruments used in Tibetan Buddhism. These instruments are used to focus awareness and are used to signal the start and the end of group meditations. It is believed that the ring of the cymbals help clear the mind in preparation for long meditative sessions.
How to Use
Hang the tingsha bells by the leather cord, one in each hand, ensuring the rims are the same height. Strike them together; a harder strike creates a louder tone
Clearing of Space/Rooms
One of the most popular uses of Tingsha bells is the space clearing.
When tapped, the cymbals resonate a unique, identical bell sound that provides a pure, cleansing effect. The sound is believed to clear low vibrational energy – even the negative ones.
Reasons for Space Clearing
Space clearing is done for a variety of reasons. Some are few of the following:
- Moving to new houses or workspaces. It is believed that the place still carries old, negative energy residues from the previous occupants. In order to start anew, space clearing is necessary to drive away all remaining negative energies.
- After experiencing an illness. Clearing spaces after experiencing an illness will help your household/area to feel more refreshed. Prior to doing so, make sure to thoroughly clean the area, wash all bedding and open all windows.
- After someone has died. Space clearing after someone has died will help remove all negative emotional residues in the place.
Other than space clearing, Tingsha bells are used for toning.
