The Prayer Bell is used in rituals to call the presence of the Budda. Before a prayer or chanting one would ring or "sing" the bell to clear the mind of worldly matters and dispel stress and tension. In Tibetan Buddism the Dorje (called Vajra by the Hindus) is used by Tibetan Gods to make lightning and is often called the thunderbolt mandala. Tibetan Lamas are often drawn holding Dorjes between thumb and forfinger.
The bell can be rung, struck like a gong or made to sing similarly to the Tibetan singing bowls. The bell is approximately 6" high. It is balanced to sing in "D". When struck or made to ring, the bell sounds in the second and third octave of "D'. As the tone purifies it will move solely into the third octave. Our Tibetan Prayer Bell and Dorje are made in Nepal
