Singing Bowls dates back to pre-Buddha (2000BC) period in Himalayas. They are often called Tibetan Singing Bowls. From musical instrument point of view, they are categorized as bells, though they are standing bells. Their sound is believed to be in harmony with soul's rhythm and they are used for meditation.

From acoustic point of view, the mallet resonates the bowl and create a high-amplitude sound. If water is added, bowl's dynamic changes and frequency decreases accordingly. The new system is a vibration container of water that admits the well-known Faraday wave pattern on its surface above a certain threshold.
