Tingsa or Tingsha are two small cymbals that are used by Buddhists during offerings, prayer and meditation. The cymbals are generally joined together by a leather strap and produce a clear, high pitched ringing tone when 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.
This pair depict the 'Om Mani Padme Hum' design, the most commonly seen mantra in Buddhism. Each set comes presented in a drawstring pouch.
