This is the bowl that started it all. The Original OM fits in the palm of your hand and is the perfect bowl for both new spiritual explorers or experienced user.
This traditional Tibetan singing bowl is approximately 3.5 inches in diameter and includes a wooden striker and hand sewn cushion.
As one of the most ancient energy tools, a singing bowl is the quintessential tool for meditation, stress reduction and holistic healing. Hand-hammered in Kathmandu, Nepal, each of our brass bowls are as unique as you. Place this bowl in your home to awaken your spiritual practice or gift it to a friend to pass on your wishes for their ongoing peace and joy in life.
Since all matter is energy vibrating at different rates, by altering the rate of vibration we can change the structure of matter. The sound from Tibetan Singing Bowls entrains the brain to move into the Theta brainwave frequencies that induce deep meditative and peaceful states, clarity of mind, and intuition. The sound vibrations impact our nervous system, engaging our relaxation reflex and inhibiting the stress or pain response.
Does anyone know the frequency of the sound?
If you wake the bell, it's G flat. If you make the bowl sing, it's D flat.
Does this make water ripple and jump?
Is this lead-free?
What is the wooden mallet ("Striker") made of?
It is wood– perfect for making the bowl sing.
What is the cushion for?
The cushion allows the bowl to vibrate after striking, extending the tone.
Do you put water in it?
Yes, you can add water to the bowl for a deeper sound.
Can you just strike it to make the pretty tone, rather than run the stick around it to make it sing?
Yes, just striking the bowl will produce a tone, but the "singing tone" is produced AFTER you strike the bowl and begin to move the stick slowly around the bowl. The sustained sound is soothing and can be helpful with meditation.
"I purchased a different singing bowl for myself and like it well enough. Then a friend suggested this bowl. So I bought it as a birthday present for my cousin. Of course I had to test it to see what it sounds like. OMGosh it has a beautiful tone and is very easy to make it sing!! You can tangibly feel the vibrations in the air from it. And since I love it so much, I went ahead and bought one for myself =)"

"Beautifully crafted for a modest price. This authentic, hand-hammered, Tibetan singing bowl produces a strong vibration and warm tone to help center and enrich your life. I am very pleased with the packaging, production and results, and you should be too. The premise of the singing bowl is to induce Theta brain waves. Theta waves are that in-between state of light sleeping, hypnosis and lucid dreaming, and of course meditation. The bottom line is, this instrument does work when used frequently with your meditation practices. Best of all, you won't break the bank buying it, it is handcrafted and durable, and the one I received was smooth and thoughtfully constructed."

"Don't let the small size fool you; this high-quality bowl can really fill a room! While I enjoy the meditative tones of online sound generators, I had never used a bowl before. But within moments of opening the box, I was enjoying the ritualistic tactile experience of prolonging a resonant tone with small simple movements. It really has an addictive quality! If you have room in your life for such a small but impacting item, this is the real deal. By the way, I'm not a spiritual or religious person; don't let the stigma, myth and dogma get in the way of such a simple thing of enjoyment. There is simply no digital substitute for the physical resonance of such vibration filling the space around you."
—Scott S, Original Ohm Customer
"I received the Original Ohm and upon hearing the first tone I felt a feeling of ease and comfort. Rarely in our hurried lives are we purposefully mindful and grateful at any given moment of time, so having the ability to stop even for just a moment when hearing the tone, may add years to our lives and bring comfort to our immediate presence. The tone produced by the Singing Bowl stills us in the moment which is the goal of life itself--living and being in the present moment. Thank you Ohm Store."
