We offer many sizes of the Temple Bowl Gongs. A pillow and mallet are included.



Buddhists use this bowl to meditate. Sound healers and therapists like to add it to the soundscape as it is strong and soothing. They are best played by striking the top edge, or rim.

You can get remarkable tones that are both clarion and subtle. They stay in a specific range but sustain and hold for a good length of time.

All the Buddhas rise up and high five with their Buddha hands when they hear you call with this bowl! Call out for the cessation of suffering, despite the suffering, because there can be no transcendence without the pain and separation first, and then the awareness of the pain and separation second, and then the struggle and transcendence from the transitory.
