Tibetan Tingsha (also called Tibetan Cymbals) are musical instruments used traditionally for singing, chanting, ritual offerings & ceremonies by Hindu and Buddhists. They feature embossed Tibetan symbols and produce a loud, clear & high-pitched tune when struck together.
Traditionally, tingsha are used as part of specific Tibetan rituals, such as offerings to "hungry ghosts." While they are commonly found today in musical recordings and yoga classes, their purpose is as a religious ritual tool.
Today, tingsha are used along with singing bowls and other instruments in meditation, music and sound healing. Tingsha can be used to create a unique, sonic tapestry effect.
