Also referred to as Tibetan prayer bells, tingsha consist of a pair of small metal cymbals held together by a leather string. They are usually about 3”-4” in diameter and produce a pleasant, melodious ringing on contact. Tingsha are popular meditation bells in the West where they are often used to begin and end a meditation or yoga session. They have their origins in Tibetan Buddhism where they are played during certain rituals: the tingsha sound is believed to attract non-human entities that will be benefitted by these specific forms of compassion practice.
