Keep it simple
This is a fascinating recording mainly for it's simplicity. I have been an avid meditator for many years I always loved the sound of the gong. And I find that this recording really is inducive for meditation. True meditation music should turn you to the space of the heart, it should still and focus the mind. The bells remind me of the meditation retreats I have taken with venerable Buddhist meditation teacher Thich Nhat Hanh. The bowls were played during meditation but also throughout the silent retreats I was fortunate to take. Every time I hear the sound, it reminds me to take a pause and breathe with ease. I am not sure what kind of singing bowl they used for the recording but sounds like one of those authentic 7 metal singing bowls. You can generally tell the difference by the tone and the quality of the ringing. Traditionally the 7 sacred metals a singing bowl are made of: 1-Copper (Venus) 2-Gold (Sun) 3-Silver (Moon) 4-Mercury (Mercury) 5-Iron (Mars) 6-Tin (Jupiter) 7-Antimony (Saturn) Tibetan legend says that iron was sometimes replaced by metals from the heaven, where meteorite was sometimes added. In my experience, the sound of the Tibetan singing bowl is so awe inspiring because it is such a primodial sound, like the ocean of the clap of thunder. The vibration created an exquisite space inside, but the space is not empty but full of calm and joy.
The meditative power of the tibetan singing bowl
There are many albums of the tibetan singing bowl but none is more appropiate for meditation and relaxation than the recording by Music for Deep Meditation. The exquisite bells are rung in precise intervals allowing for the listener to go deep inside. The humming of the bowl is nothing but extraordinary making one feel like entering the primodial womb of the universe. The sound of the tibetan bowl is very healing also and the tone of the bowls is just right for such purpose also. Apsari.
Good effort; bad microphone.
Both of these tracks contain within them either heavy breathing or wind that makes the microphone produce a boofing noise. It is distracting when a person is trying to relax and thus I suggest the album be purchased more for entertainment than meditation.
