Overview: Tibetan Chakras And Singing Bowls

In Tibetan Bon Buddhist tradition, chakras are quite different from those depicted in Hindu scriptures.

In Tibetan tradition, there are five chakras, and five seed syllables are associated with them. These chakras are syllables related to the external body, internal body, and secret body. They’re called warrior syllables because they help you battle demons in, out, and around you.

Together, these syllables are believed to lead you to enlightenment by expressing your entire being in full.

Each syllable represents an idea, that when meditated upon with singing bowls, blends the totality of healing sounds in Tibetan meditation.

Lamas believe this brings out the authentic self of the practitioner. Going through one syllable after another with the healing sounds of singing bowls, will enhance the meditative theta state.

Getting To Know The Warrior Symbols

In his book “Tibetan Sound Healing,” the five warrior syllables are well explained by Rinpoche (incarnate lama) Tenzing Wangyal. “

Rinpoche says, “We have a departing place, the place of conditions and dissatisfactions; doorways through which to enter, which are the chakras; and a final destination, our essential being. The sequence moves from the pure open space of being to the place of the manifestation of virtue in action”.

Here’s an introduction to Tibetan meditation with warrior symbols from Rinpoche himself:

Tibetan Sound Healing - Part 1: Introduction

First Syllable A/Ah

The first chakra of Crown in Tibetan Bon Buddhist traditions is AH or A, shown with the color white. It represents the element of Space and the Tibetan Deity “Khaying Karpo.”

The crown represents the changeless body, and Ah denotes the ground of the body.

We may change throughout life, but space or ground is eternal or changeless. The warrior syllable mantra of A occupies the highest space in the body as it’s defined as the “most pristine” or “primally pure.”

Crown contains the divine truth or the wisdom body of Buddha or Dharmakaya.

While chanting the syllable A, you must strive to bring the focus to the crown chakra and visualize it getting charged. When the connection is established, most people will even feel a heat or burning sensation around the forehead.

Tenzin Wangyal says you should imagine a white light emanating from the forehead chakra of the crown when chanting the warrior syllable.

Second Syllable Om

The second warrior syllable we’ll focus on is OM which represents Light.

Rinpoche describes it as the “unceasing speech.”

He says reciting OM/AUM/OHM over and over helps us connect lightness within the space of “AH” you already connected. Om clarifies and brightens this space.

Hence, OM is clarity in Bon Buddhism and brings the power of the deity Mugyung Karpo.

When you chant Om, it’s important to imagine a yellow light circulating your neck and throat areas. It will help you clear the obstacles and blockages on your road because it may halt completion.

Doing so opens your throat by fusing vibration and sound created by the sound of Ohm.

That said, the ruling element of Om in Bon traditions isn’t light but Earth.

Third Syllable Hung

Next comes the Heart chakra represented by the element of air and the syllable Hung.

As air is light and fills the space, it’s pure and undeluded. That’s why HUNG represents the undeluded self. Chanting this warrior syllable clarifies the obstructions and blockages like delusions, confusions, hesitations, and suspicions that diminish our positivity.

So, singing or chanting HUNG will help you remove negativity and fill the heart with positivity. Rinpoche says it’s the fuel for setting your intention. It will take you to a place of inner clarity and that which is supported strongly by pure positive joy.

When meditating upon HUNG, imagine a blue light emanating from the center of your chest (this is where the heart chakra is located). But keep in mind, you need to sing it repeatedly to sync the syllable with the heart’s rhythm.

Doing so will reveal the essence of self-love, love for other people, and the universe from within. Try to visualize the Tibetan deity Muyang Dewo while meditating on this syllable.

Fourth Syllable Ram

The fourth Warrior Syllable of RAM is represented by the Navel Chakra (Solar Plexus in Hindu Chakra system). It’s powered by the element of Fire and the Tibetan deity Musang Gungyel.

Rinpoche explains that RAM is the ripening of the virtues within us. It awakens the life force energy when repeatedly chanted. Your obstacles aren’t just removed but burned when you chant this mantra.

The wisdom of Navel Chakra is an awareness that doesn’t discriminate. It’s filled with Light and heart in space to fill you with the confidence of your authentic self.

Essentially, reciting RAM kills your inner demons. These are demons of negativity such as envy, pride, anger, ignorance, and attachment.

When you sing RAM again and again, it burns the Fire of your life force to heighten your creativity and vigor. As a result, you feel enthusiastic, restless, and euphoric.

Fifth Syllable DZA

The last syllable is DZA, known as the warrior syllable of movement or action. After space, Light, heart, and potentiality, this is where manifestation takes place. That’s why it’s associated with the “Secret Chakra,” which means the seat of Kundalini or Sacral energy in the Hindu system of chakras.

Suppose you want to become more productive in life.

After reciting and dwelling on the four warrior syllables, set the intention of DZA by vocalizing “this is my wish” at this stage.

Then recite the fifth syllable of manifestation repeatedly.

When you recite it, again and again, you are actually tapping into the essence of energy, effort, and struggle that powers the Secret Chakra. This isn’t a burning desire but the enlightenment or the “activity itself.”

Imagine a green light emerging from where your body touches the ground while sitting in a meditative pose. This is a few inches under your navel chakra, and it’s the completion of chakra activation in Tibetan meditation.

The deity invoked here is Mume Thaye with the element of water.

How To Connect The Warrior Syllables Using Singing Bowls

Now that you know what precisely the Tibetan meditation with five warrior symbols means and their corresponding chakras, elements, deities, and color energies, it’s time to practice it with the sound healing vibrations of a singing bowl.

Rinpoche suggests people dwell on each warrior syllable for a week or a month to completely understand it.


No matter how earnestly you recite the manifestation syllable of DZA, it won’t manifest positive energies unless your AH, OHM, HUNG, and RAM are charged already.

For instance, AH clears your mind and body to open it up.

OHM fills it with the Light of awareness.

HUNG is where you discover the positivity of your energies.

RAM is where all your virtues that you powered in HUNG ripen.

“Once all these stages are complete, you’re already enlightened, and manifestation with DZA automatically follows.”

No matter which Tibetan Lama you ask, they’ll advise you to incorporate chanting the warrior syllables as a daily practice.

Each day you must start with something small that you’d like to manifest or change in your life.

Start the session by playing the singing bowl by striking or rubbing the rim to get into a meditative state.

If you’re feeling disconnected or distracted, strike the bowl again and begin playing from the start.

Repeated playing of the singing bowl will quickly help you get into a meditative state.

Another way to incorporate the singing bowl is by playing it all through the Tibetan meditation ritual and after it.

Healing sound works the other way, too- you can use the warrior syllables to enhance a session of singing bowl healing too!
