Tibetan Tingsha is an instrument where two small cymbals are joined together with a leather strap. Tingsha or Ting Sha is used in prayers and rituals by the Tibetan Buddhist practitioners. It is also used to prepare for healing, space cleansing, meditation and sound therapy treatment. When the cymbals are struck together, they produce a pure, clear and soothing sound that instantly strike an echo within the heart; and heal and cleanse the energy in the area filled with the sound of it. This rich sound awakens one awareness, calls ones to remember who one is, and to recognise one's priorities in life. It can also be used to focus one's mind before and after meditation.
The Tibetan Tingsha is very versatile, and can be used on a variety of different occasions. In Feng Shui, it can be used to purify the energy in your home or office when you feel it is too stagnant, negative or lifeless – this will cause you a blockage in mental capacity and a constant feeling of fatigue. This is often the case when you move to a new home; Tibetan cymbals are necessary to clear away the sad, violent or disease-infested energy that the previous residents may have left behind.
Cleansing your office or business area every morning will help to bring in more customers and business opportunities. It will also serve to bring new, refreshed good luck energy, and will encourage a greater atmosphere of serenity and peace in your home or work space.
To cleanse a Feng Shui product, simply hover the cymbals over the product and strike them together. The sound will infuse positive vibes to the item being cleansed.
There are several ways to play the Tingsha. Hold the leather strap above the cymbals so that they suspend horizontally and a few inches apart. Draw them together so that their edges strike. Alternatively, you can hold both the Tingsha vertically at right angles and strike the edges together with a simultaneous movement of both hands.
