TING SHA “Clearing & Mental Clarity”
Tingshas are cymbals used as ritual tools in Tibetan Buddhist prayers and ceremonies. Tied to the two ends of a cord, they produce a pure, high-pitched sound when struck. Uniquely, the tone that emanates from them is an extremely long one. The name “tingsha” is derived from two syllables in Tibetan – “ting” is the sound produced by the metal and “sha” means “hanging”.
The cymbals are also used for meditation. Their sound is said to cleanse the spirit, clearing the mind of all thoughts during meditation and paving the way for a post-meditation state of great mental clarity.
