Today I want to talk about bells, no, not the doorbell that rings and then sends your dog into endless voluminous barking but the calm serene sound of those metallic instruments that have been used for centuries.
I love the deep resonant sound of bells as they ring out quiet contemplative tones that give you a sense of peace and serenity.
Perhaps I should have waited until the letter t but the Tibetan bowl is probably in the bell family and even if it isn’t and I have my history all mixed up, bells and bowls are great anyway.
Here are some recommended cds to get you started on your journey of exploring these resonant instruments.
Deuter – Tibet Nada Himalaya 1 and 2, Yatri – Crystal Spirit – The Healing Sounds of Crystal Singing Bowls, Xumantra – Singing Bowls, and the Tibetan Bells 4 volume series by Henry Wolff & Nancy Hennings
