These gorgeous Gold Sri Yantra Bowls are sourced from skilled bowl makers in Himalayan regions of India and Nepal, which have long standing bowl making traditions. These bowls are hand hammered, each bearing its own unique markings and patina.
The Sri Yantra
What is the Sri Yantra?
The Sri Yantra is composed of nine interlocking triangles that radiate outwards from the center. Four triangles point heavenward. Some say they represent Shiva, or the masculine, while the five that point earthward are for Shakti, or the feminine. This suggests to some that the Sri Yantra symbolizes the union of the masculine and the feminine divine.
We also find that this central point can represent the junction of the physical, manifest, world and the spiritual realms and the Source, your Higher Self.
These bowls include a cushion and appropriately sized mallet.
Please note that the photos and videos are not of the actual bowl you will receive, but of a representative sample of a similar bowl. The sizing of bowls is never precise as bowls are typically sold by weight in the wholesale market. Our sizes are approximate.

About Our Bowl Rating System
In the world of Himalayan bowls there are many variations. While all of our bowls are suitable for sound practitioners, we have developed a rating system that grades each bowl based on its sound and construction. The sound structure of bowl is a mix of volume, sustain, harmonic spectrum, and modulation. We also consider such nuances as the age of the bowl and aesthetic appeal. With these factors we rate bowls as follows:
- Antique - These types of bowls are no longer made and usually are more than 60 years old. Some are several centuries old. The price of these bowls has continued to rise over the years and these bowls can be considered investments. Their sound structure is usually quite impressive, with pronounced audible overtones.
- Master - Master bowls are modern bowls of the best quality and sound. Many of the newer bowls have sound structures on par with the antique bowls and exhibit incredible craftsmanship. Such bowls are usually comparable in price to Antique bowls.
- Practitioner - Practitioner bowls are bowls that we have found provide an outstanding value while also delivering the excellent sound structure necessary for serious sound practitioners. It takes a very skilled ear to tell the difference between a Practitioner bowl and a Master bowl, but there are differences. A trained ear can often hear a richer number of overtones in Master and Antique bowls along with a more balanced spectrum of harmonics.
