Auspicious Buddhism Symbols Brass Tingsha Cymbal Bell


Tingsha Bell

Tibetan tingsha bells are small cymbals used in prayer and rituals by Tibetan Buddhist and Yoga practitioners. Two bells are joined together by a leather strap or chain. The cymbals are struck together producing a clear and high pitched tone.

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 on a record. These sounds and instruments are great to listen to during your yoga or meditation practice.

In Buddhism Traditions, the Eight Auspicious Symbols are a set of objects that represent qualities of enlightenment and serve as teaching tools.
