These traditional Japanese bowls are made of the finest quality bronze.
Handmade by a small company with a 250 year legacy of making Buddhist shrines and bells, each bowl is blessed prior and post manufacture to ensure its purity and intention.
Although we call these instruments "bowls," they can also be considered bells. They sound best when struck lightly with a mallet near the rim producing a clear sound.
These high-quality handcrafted Japanese Buddhist Bowls have incredible sound and work brilliantly for meditation and other sound healing work.

In the Japanese language, "Fu" means wind, and "Rin" means bell. Hence this is a Wind Bell. Furin Bells came to Japan from China centuries ago. Originally the bells were used in China to divine good or bad fortune by hanging in the forests. They migrated into Japanese temples and wealthy and noble homes, and were used to ward off evil spirits.
