These traditional Tingsa or Tingsha are made up of two small cymbals that are used by Buddhists during offerings, prayer and meditation.
The cymbals are normally joined together by a leather strap and produce a clear, high pitched ringing tone when being struck together.
In addition to their ancient traditional use as an aid to meditation and in ritual offerings, tingsa are nowadays being used increasingly in sound therapy for the “space - clearing” of rooms.
