Today Singing bowl is not a secret. One can find authentic singing bowls throughout Nepal, India, Tibet, and even on online platforms. But the problem with some of these sellers is they focus on mass-produced singing bowls. Now, there is nothing wrong with machine-made bowls aesthetically, but the issue arises when you are looking for the original sound and vibration that only handcrafted bowls have. Also, the bowls are your treasured possessions, and you should get the best value out of them.
It takes days to make one handmade singing bowl by hammering a mold, and an uneven surface characterizes it. Some bowls may have carvings and drawings that show the craftsmen's skill who worked on the bowl.

Today bowls are used for meditation, yoga, reiki, and even chakra alignment.
