This gong comes with a mallet.
Note: The gong in the photo isn't the exact gong you'll receive, but a good example of what it will look like. Designs will vary.
The Tibetan Rising Gong displays symbols that are etched on the gong in Tibetan Buddhist style. Each one is different in style and size because they do each one by hand, so each gong is unique. The gong itself is made in India, because that is a safe place for Tibetans these days, in case you didn't know. Some folks don't.
The sound of the gong is bell-like, bright and rich, with fast decay. It is good to mark peaceful moments of quiet meditation or prayer, in the home, studio, or office. Enjoy this gong when you need to refill your spiritual vessel.
