Buddhist bells, also known as dril-bu, are ornately decorated handheld instruments that have served a symbolistic and ritual function in Buddhism for centuries.
The bell is played not by striking but by moving the hands gracefully in a prescribed fashion according to the ritual being performed. While the bell must be held in the left hand when being played, it must always be picked up and placed back with the right hand.
The sound produced by a Buddhist bell varies based on the size and shape of the bell. The resonant, periodic ring of the bell serves an important liturgical function, both in terms of its ability to evoke a meditative state and as a musical offering to the Gods.

Buddhist bells come in different sizes with different designs. They typically range from 15 to 18 centimetres in length and 8-10cms in diameter. Their weights range from 300 to 400 grams.
Owing to its sharp sustaining resonant sound, buddhist bells are now commonly used in sound healing as well as for relaxation and promoting concentration.
These Buddhist bells are handcrafted by artisans in Nepal and India. We directly engage with the artisans and support their long tradition of handcrafting musical instruments.
Pick up the bell with your right hand and then transfer it to your left hand. Hold the bell gently between your thumb and your middle and ring fingers, while the index and little finger protrude slightly. Next, pick up the scepter or the Dumroo with your right hand. Move both hands in identical short, gentle and swaying motions ensuring that the bell rings at every turn of your hands. You must begin playing the bell first and the Dumroo or the specter next, and stop playing the Dumroo or the specter first and then stop playing the bell.
