Tingshas (ding-shas, ​​cymbals) are used as musical offerings in spiritual practices and during meditation practice, at regular intervals, to maintain concentration. “Musical offerings” are common during pujas (prayer rituals) where several instruments are used: bells, drums, cymbals and horns. Musical offerings are indeed the norm in many Tibetan and Hindi Buddhist rituals. Today they are used by those and lay people. They are used with Feng Shui, meditation, cleansing, healing and alignment.

What can I use tingshas for?
Strike the hand cymbals together and a beautiful, clear, high note will arise, purifying the air and creating extraordinary stillness. The shimmering tone of the tingsha instantly strikes a resonance in the human heart. Their goal is to summon, they call us to become aware, to remember who we are, and to recognize our priorities in this often turbulent and illusory world. When suspended horizontally and struck together, a delightful oscillating sound wave appears to pass between them as they reverberate at a high frequency, creating an impressive symphony of evocative sounds.

Tingsha and Feng Shui
Tingshas are also used in Feng Shui to clear the energy present in a room and "open" it by sounding the tingshas in the four corners of a room. A great way to eliminate energy when, for example, the use of smudge is not possible or appropriate.

Tingshas and healing sound
By healing or balancing auric fields, cymbals are also used to define the beginning and end of a period of meditation. Some say that using tingshas is like an invocation. It brings our awareness into the here and now.

How to store tingshas
As with many altar offerings, we recommend placing them wrapped in cloth when not in use, or storing them in a special two-compartment tingsha brocade holder.

Tingshas decoration
The casting may include decoration of the upper surfaces - usually depicting dragons, the mantra "Om Mani Padme Hum" or Buddhist symbols such as the Tibetan eight auspicious signs. But many tinghas are simply simple, shining entirely through the beauty of their sound.
Composition of tingshas
Each tingsha is individually sand cast and usually made primarily from brass (a metal alloy composed primarily of copper and zinc) or bronze (primarily an alloy of copper and tin). While both sound magnificent, bronze cymbals produce an even more powerful harmonic resonance that vibrates even more deeply through every fiber of your soul.
