Its use is based on the belief that the mind and body are affected by their sound and vibration, which relaxes and eases the mind and body. This enables you to focus deeper inside of yourself.

This is how you end up with high-quality bowls. The fact that they are handmade makes each bowl unique. You need to watch out for certain signs when buying a bowl, to be sure you end up with the best possible quality.
