Elegant in its simplicity, this Tibetan bowl was created from an alloy of seven metals. In Buddhist Tibet, bowls like this were used for centuries as a means of meditation. The meditator would roll a wooden ball in rhythmic patterns around the interior of the bowl while chanting a mantra. This gentle action would lull the person into a transcendent state of peace and harmony. Today, we can achieve a similar mood merely by gazing upon the bowl's smoothly worn shape. Its aura of calm is very strong, as if it had accumulated centuries of benevolent energy. - (FZ.232)
