This unique Single Hand Inkin Bell is perfect for keeping one hand free during ritual or space clearing. The bell is extended using the telescopic rod. The attached strike is able to ring the bell using your thumb or finger. Inkin Bells are common in the Zen Buddhist temples and typically used by the head monk to mark the beginning or end of the meditation hours. These bells produce a bright, full, and long lasting sound that beautifully accentuates the stillness of sitting. Traditionally, the Inkin is ideal for meditation. The clear tone also works wonderfully for any space clearing work.
