This genuine brass Tibetan Bell is entirely handmade using traditional methods. A Dorje and striker is included. In the widely accepted teaching the hollow of the bell represents the perfection of wisdom, realization of the emptiness that the bell’s sound emerges from. The Dorje represents compassion. Together they represent wisdom and compassion, the Buddhism path to Enlightenment. Traditionally, the Bell and Dorje must never be separated from each other, either placed together in a place of respect, or held simultaneously by the practitioner. The Tibetan Bell is held in the left hand, the Dorje in the right. Please allow for slight variations, as these are hand crafted. A Fair Trade product.
