Tibetan sound bowl

Birth of the greatest sound bowl of the world

In the ‘70es the world got to know the Tibetan bowl as novelty, as a music instrument, the “Singing Bowl”. However, its origin dates back to much earlier times, and it is not only a music instrument…

In China, bronze bowls of standard 8-50 cm diameter were documented during the Shang period (16-11. century B.C.), which were used to measure grain, and because of their acoustic characteristics, to play music.

The bell, well known in the Western world, is a similar sound device (suspended the other way round); in China bells were used already in the 13th century B.C., but the use of great bells only came with the spreading of Buddhism in the 2-7th century A.D.

The acoustic characteristics and resonance of the bowl are the result of their unique materials.

It is mostly made of seven different metals which are linked to the planets.
Gold = Sun, Silver = Moon, Copper = Venus, Iron = Mars, Tin = Jupiter, Mercury = Mercury, Lead = Saturn.

When my father got sick, I could see how Western medicine only looks how cancer devours people. I spent nights at the internet trying to find alternative solutions.

Once I stumbled upon an interesting text: “cancer treatment with Tibetan Bowl”. Acoustic sound therapy with Tibetan Singing Bowl…

As we are living in China, we went through all possibilities in Tibet. I realized that no bowls are produced in Tibet itself... rather in Nepal and Northern India. We traveled to Nepal, I met a specialist making and using bowls.

I found many interesting thing at the internet about sound therapy, but it was unbelievable to me, that these small bowls could produce such vibration which has a substantial effect on a human body.

I decided to have this unique great bowl made, which does not exist yet.

This made it possible to try the acoustic sound wave therapy during the treatment of different illnesses.

To the summer of 2018 Samsara, the Great Bowl was ready, with the exact composition of metals.

As for the measuring, we used the rules of the “golden ratio”, so the diameter is 233 centimeters (Fibonacci sequence), it weighs 2.7 tons.

There has already been a great bowl of 176 centimeters diameter and a weight of 1.2 tons. This bowl was studied thoroughly by the University of Innsbruck examining more than 50 physiological functions. The condition of the patient before and after the treatment shows very interesting values: almost all examined functions nears the optimal. The cells of the body are somehow so coded that they strive to achieve an optimal, balanced state. Illness is, when the cells and the body is out of balance.

It is clear from studies so far, that after sound vibration treatments functions converge significantly to the optimal values.

Our aim at Garáb is to use the great singing bowl to sound therapy and to find alternative cure to different illnesses.

„If we accept that sound is vibration and we know that vibration touches every part of our physical being, then we understand that sound is heard not only through our ears but through every cell in our bodies. One reason sound heals on a physical level is because it so deeply touches and transforms us on the emotional and spiritual planes. Sound can redress imbalances on every level of physiologic functioning and can play a positive role in the treatment of virtually any medical disorder.”
Dr. Mitchell Gaynor, director of Medical Oncology and Integrative Medicine at the Cornell Cancer Prevention Center in NYC

Sound healing is fast becoming internationally respected as an effective modality for treating many physical, emotional and spiritual conditions. Modern medicine can now measure and thus confirm the use of sound as a means to heal. Sound healing has been effective in relieving pain and in the treatment of stress-related afflictions such as chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, insomnia, pain and depression.

Mainstream medical teaching facilities such as Duke University and the University of North Carolina have added programs that link body, mind, and spirit to the treatment of cancer. Cancer prevention centers are utilizing sound as a vital part of the healing process for patients with astounding results. Dr. Mitchell Gaynor has been using sound, including Tibetan / Himalayan Singing Bowls, crystal bowls and chanting in work with cancer patients for many years. The medical director of the Deepak Chopra Center in California, Dr. David Simon, found that both chanting and the sound from Tibetan / Himalayan Bowls are chemically metabolized into ‘endogenous opiates’, which act on the body as internal painkillers and healing agents.
