Tibetan drum playing and chanting are used for sound meditation and connecting to wisdom. The Tibetan singing bowl is played while reciting mantras to bring about a powerful healing meditation to calm the mind. The Tibetan gong uses the vibration of sound as well as mantras and meditation to generate healing energy. The Bon bell sound invokes the wisdom deity.
Through the monks’ daily meditation practice and invocations, these ritual instruments became strong healing tools used for serving others. They are a source of very deep healing energy, and Rinpoche wishes to share the way these powerful Sound Healing techniques and mantras have been used in monastery meditation practice since ancient times.
