Description:The Meinl Tingsha is true to the classical Tibetan cymbal. This instrument consists of two metal plates at either end of a cord. To bring the bell tone to play, it is enough to collide the cymbals gently. The peculiarity of this instrument is the interval between the two cymbals. This interval is one octave higher than our brain’s alpha state. When we hear the sounds each cymbal shares through their overtones and listen to the leap between the two, it makes it easier to get into meditation. Tingshas will also be used to release blockages in a person’s vibration field as well as in an environment. Listen to the harmonic sound of our Tingsha.
The two cymbals can be struck either at right angles or horizontally to each other. The strike causes a high and space-penetrating sound, which symbolizes the beginning or the end of a ritual, a meditation or fantasy journey. The sound of the cymbals is said to bring clear and bright thoughts, clear the senses of negative energy, and deepen attention and concentration.
Meinl Sonic Energy Tingshas are available in two variations:
● Smooth polished ~ MEINL Sonic Energy Tingsha (TINGSHA) 3.15″
● Decorated with the eight Buddhist symbols of luck ~8 Luck Symbols (TINGSHA-8)
MEINL Sonic Energy Tingsha – 8 Luck Symbols (TINGSHA-8)
The Parasol symbolizes protection and care in Buddhism. It provides shade and protects from sun and heat. Furthermore, it is said to keep away harmful influences, such as suffering, negative emotions, illness or demons.
The Endless Knot
Just as endless and infinite as the symbol of the knot are the teachings of Buddha. It is meant to symbolize how all worldly things (e. g. friendship and love) are interconnected and interdependent.
In Buddhism, a lavishly filled vase embodies an abundance of beneficial circumstances, such as health, wealth, prosperity, and a long life.
The Lotus Flower
The symbol of the Lotus Flower is probably the best known of the eight Buddhist Lucky Symbols. It represents the true nature of all humanity and stands for perfect purity, beauty and new beginnings.
The Conch Shell
The Conch Shell is a symbol of the deep, far-reaching and melodic sound of the Buddha’s Dharma teachings and is still used as an instrument by Tibetan monks today. The sound of the conch is said to awaken people from the deep sleep of ignorance.
Pair of Golden Fish
Besides the Lotus Flower, the Pair of Golden Fish is also among the most well-known symbols of Buddhist teachings. As a welcome gift to bridal couples, it symbolizes happiness, fertility and wealth and is said to free one’s spirit from the cycle of rebirths.
The Victory Banner
The Victory Banner is an expression of the struggle of good against evil and the triumph over ignorance. It symbolizes dominion and power and is meant to remind us that we can only achieve enlightenment by conquering our pride, lust and passion.
The Dharma Wheel
The Dharma Wheel is a common symbol of Buddhism. The eight spokes of the wheel reflect the Eightfold Noble Path. It embodies the path to self-realization and inner enlightenment.
