What is Tingsha?
Tingshas are small cymbals used in prayers and rituals by Tibetan Buddhist practitioners. Two cymbals are joined together by a leather strap or chain. The cymbals are struck together producing a clear and high pitched tone. Typical sizes range from 2.5 – 4 inches in diameter. Tingsha are very thick and produce a unique long ringing tone. Tingshas are also used as musical instrument and for sound therapy. Artists such as Karma Moffett and Joseph Feinstein use multiple pairs of antique tingsha together to create a sonic tapestry effect. Traditionally, however, tingshas are used as part of specific Tibetan rituals, such as offerings to "hungry ghosts." While they are commonly found today in musical recordings and yoga classes, their real function is as a religious ritual tool.
