Singing Bowls: A Practical Handbook of Instruction and Use, the only text out with history, background and complete playing instructions for primarily the Tibetan Singing Bowls and Tingsha bells.
Singing Bowls explains the Himalayan or Tibetan Singing bowls - also known as Tibetan or Nepalese singing bowls - and the special, peaceful and transforming sounds they can release into your life. Sometimes, playing Singing Bowls is called "sound massage". The mysteries explained here are an excellent overview if you desire to open yourself to the therapeutic value of this transforming series of sacred instrument.
Singing Bowls: A Practical Handbook of Instruction and Use is a must have if you have bought or are about to purchase a singing bowl. This text also covers a significant amount of information about Tingsha Bells, the Tibtan Bell and Dorje, and other Asian spiritual instruments. Much of this information will apply to playing a Japanese Rin Gong since it can be played similar to a Tibetan Singing Bowl.
If you want to get the most out of playing any of these sacred instruments it is highly recommended as a primer.
