These beautiful bells called Ghanta were made in brass by local artisans on the island of Bali in Indonesia, made as per ancient techniques.
Ghanta’s like these are ritual bells used in Hindu ceremonies in Bali. Most temples have one hanging at the entrance and devotees ring the bell before entering. The bell is also rung by the priest during the ceremony, while burning incense in front of the deity and when offering food or flowers. It is said that by ringing the bell, the devotee informs the gods of his or her arrival. The sound of the bell is considered to bring good luck and to welcome divinity, casting away evil. The sound of the bell is also said to make the mind more receptive, and helping to control ones focus.
For certain yoga practices it’s believed that the sound of the bell energizes the Chakras and balances the energy in your body.
The bells come complete with blackened metal stands and their intriguing story printed out for you inside a beautiful envelope.
