Ashtmangala Tingsha Cymbal, 2.75 inch Diameter
Made from Seven-Metals
Antique Brass Finish

Tingshas are struck together to produce a clear, pure, long-lasting sound, during meditation, to remove negative energies. These tingshas are embossed with Ashtmangala, representing the eight Tibetan symbols of happiness. The symbols or "symbolic attributes" are yidam (meditation deities) and teaching tools. Not only do these attributes (or energetic signatures) point to qualities of enlightened mindstream, they are also the investiture that ornaments these enlightened "qualities."  Ashtamangala: parasol, pair of golden fish, conch, treasure vase, lotus, infinite knot, victory banner and wheel.

The metals of antiquity are the 'seven metals' which humans had identified and found use for in prehistoric times: gold, silver, copper, tin, lead, iron, and mercury.
