The Tibetan Gong
The Tibetan Gong, is a musical instrument with a long history and cultural importance. Handmade by expert artisans utilising ancient techniques, this gong is a real piece of art that will give depth and character to any area.
A gong is a vast flat metal disc that generates a loud and unique sound when struck. In the Western world, it is occasionally used for musical instruments, and as a signalling device, but in Tibet, the sound of the gong invites monks into the prayer hall.
The sound of a gong assists the brain in reaching deep relaxation, especially the delta and theta brain wave states, which are the slowest brain waves in humans. Humans tend to achieve these states while daydreaming or in a deep sleep; they help relaxation, creativity, and natural healing.
For thousands of years, gongs have been utilised as shamanic healing tools, celebratory instruments, and a mode of communication. Research implies that gong manufacture dates back to 4,000 B.C., and old alchemical texts date the gong back to 16,000 B.C.
The gong's strength stems from its unique sound properties, which significantly affect both your mind and body. The sound of the gong can produce a meditative state on a cerebral level because it changes your brainwave activity via a process known as entrainment.
Gongs are classified into three types.
Hanging gongs: These round discs with holes towards the top of their outer circumference are known as flat gongs.
Nipple gongs, also known as bossed gongs, have a raised boss or knob in the centre of the metal disc.
Bowling gongs: Singing bowls are another name for these musical instruments
Because sentient people have one hundred and eight varieties of worry, the gongs in Chinese temples are rung one hundred and eight times each time. As a result, the gong is utilised to instil the one hundred and eight "Samadhis" in everyone and eliminate the one hundred and eight karmas.
Gongs can be played on the outside or inside of the circle. The primary note may be obtained by striking a gong softly in the middle. Higher harmonics are produced by striking a gong on its outer edge.
Gongs symbolise Asian culture, profoundly embedded in people's lives in Japan, China, and South Asia. Gongs were initially used for long-distance telecommunication and signify achievement in those societies' lifestyles.
