TINGSHA (Cymbala)

Awaken your spirit and summon peacefulness to your mind and body with the vibration of tingsha chimes. Used for centuries by Tibetan Buddhists to prepare for meditation.  When the two pieces strike each other they produce a clear, pure, cleansing sound which can be used to focus the mind before and after meditation for clearing spaces of negative energies and for the healing and balancing of auric fields. Tingshas are also simply a nice musical instrument. Tingshas come in matched pairs attached with a leather cord.  Hold each cymbal by the cord close to the hole where it enters the tingsha, strike one cymbal against the other on their edges at right angles.  Let the bell ring until there is silence, or simply hold the leather cord and clang the tingshas together.

A wooden drum originating from Nepal. This popular instrument is the backbone of most of the Nepalese folk music.  It's cylindrical shape has a slight bulge in the middle. Each drum has two heads, made of goat skin.  A black paste attached to each head is responsible for the drum's unique resonance.  The skins are attached with goat leather strips and can be further tightened to tune the drum by metal rings on the various leather strips. Both heads are played simultaneously with hands, holding the drum horizontally, either sitting cross legged, by hanging it around one's neck or carried over the shoulder and striking from the front side only.
