This listing includes the gong and a traditional Chinese Mallet.
Note: This 32" Om Gong is unique. Once it has sold, we won't have another one exactly like it, but we will eventually get more of this size and style.
32" Om Dark Wind Gong (#ENG001)
Recently blown in, the Dark Wind Gong is the newest addition to the Gongs Unlimited family. These gongs are similar to the traditional Wind Gongs, but with an unlathed outer edge. The unlathed part controls the crash, creating less splash than a wind gong and preventing the gong from opening up sound-wise like a fully lathed gong.
OM or AUM. It is merely the English transliteration of a Sanskrit term.
The symbol that we use to represent Om consists of three curves, a semicircle, and a dot.
The bottom curve represents our waking state.
The middle curve signifies the dream state.
The top curve suggests the state of deep sleep.
The dot signifies the fourth state of consciousness, a pure consciousness of spirit that transcends space and time and that informs all the others.
The semi circle at the top represents Maya and separates the dot from the other three curves. It signals to us that it is the illusion of Maya that can be an obstacle to realization of this Highest Mind.
