Brass Tingsha Tibetan Prayer Bells

We all have most likely heard the Tingsha meditation bells during a yoga class. They’re that high pitched bell sound that you’ve probably heard at the beginning of your class during pranayama or perhaps at the end during your final resting savasana. The Tingsha Bells are usually accompanied by other Tibetan singing bowls, gong sounds, or crystal bowls, and other instruments, whether you are hearing it live or in a recording. These sounds and instruments are great to listen to during your yoga or meditation practice. But, did you know that most of these instruments and sounds have deeper meanings attached to them.

The Brass Tingsha Tibetan Prayer bells are not very thin like musical cymbals they are actually quite thick. They are also not used like musical cymbals, by banging the two flatter surfaces together. They are played by hitting the two edges together and then allowing them to move apart from each other so that the tone can resonate throughout the room. The sound that comes from these bells is a high pitched cleansing sound and vibration. The small bells originate in Tibet and are used by Buddhist practitioners.

Brass Tingsha Tibetan Prayer Bells Symbols

Some bells come without any symbols attached to them but some include the 8 auspicious symbols. The Ashtamangala (8 auspicious symbols) are made up of 8 different symbols that have significance in not only Buddhism but also in other Indian religions. They are symbols of good fortune and an enlightened mind.

1. Golden Fishes

The Golden fishes represent breath & prana (life force) because they are reminiscent of the Ida and Pingala energy channels of the body which regulate the breath.

Other forms of symbolism from these fish include freedom & abundance with the fish having complete freedom of movement throughout the water.

2. Parasol

The Parasol represents protection from harm and illness, just like a parasol protects from the sun. It also represents the expansiveness of your crown chakra, through the expansiveness of the canopy.

3. Treasure Vase

The Treasure Vase represents health, longevity, prosperity, and empowerment. This symbol is seen a lot through different sects of Buddhism.

4. Lotus

Through the lotus we see purity of the mind, body, & speech represented. With non-attachment we can find this purity within. The lotus floats above the muddy waters of attachment & desire, as should we.

5. Conch Shell

The conch shell is a symbol that is seen with many deities, it is how these deities spread their message. Therefore, the conch represents educating and taking care of yourself.

6. Endless Knot

The Endless Knot show that everything in life is interwoven and interdependent. Your future outcomes are rooted in what you do today.

7. Victory Banner

This is the type of banner that was flown once battles were won. The Victory Banner represents overcoming defeat & attaining happiness.

8. Dharma Wheel

The Dharma Wheel represents all of Buddha’s teachings. The wheel is a symbol of the never ending journey to self improvement. There is no end.

These versatile bells aren’t just used for meditation and yoga practices in western modern times. They can also be used for Feng Shui and clearing space. The purifying tone of these bells are rung in each corner of a room for Feng Shui. They are used for clearing auras and are said to “fill” empty space.

The higher frequencies of these bells are typically used more for opening the upper chakras rather than the lower chakras which usually have a lower deeper tone.
