Two small cymbals with various decorations, connected with leather thong. Tingshas are struck one against another to clear away negative spiritual energy before a Buddhist or Hindu ceremony. They are tinkled gently by Buddhists to help them create a balanced or centered state, or to fix a moment in one's memory. Hindus clash tingshas together loudly summoning a deity to worship. They are made of bell metal. Imported by our supplier from Tibet.
