More Details

In Balinese culture the Genta is a sacred object, only to be used by those who have completed the mawinten ceremonies, a cleansing rite of passage for those entering the religious realm, to become priests and scholars. The genta is said to be the weapon of the lord Iswara.
The sound – or rather the spiritual vibration created – connects the three realms and is heard by those that dwell within them: bhuana loka (human realm), bhur loka (lower realm) and swah loka (heavenly realm). Thus, prayers are able to reach their destination. It is said to represent OM, or AUM (Ang Ung Mang – Brahma Wisnya Siwa), and thus the singular God of Sang Hyang Widhi Wasa, connecting those praying to the Almighty.
The shape of the bell itself is important, including a stupa (the bottom bell), a handle with seven rings, a lingga at the top and four hooks. These are all symbolic.
The sound of the genta is one of the Five Sounds necessary in ceremonies, including the sound of the kulkul bell, chanting or song, gamelan, genta and mantras.
The philosophy of the genta alone is deep and complex, and the above only scratches the surface.

Sound healing

Access a state of relaxation and mindfulness with our gorgeous Himalayan healing instruments. Sound therapy is built on the idea that our brains and bodies operate on various specific frequencies in order to grow, consolidate information, and heal. We can create sound vibrations at similar frequencies to those our brains use to encourage those beneficial states of being. Similar to meditation, we are trying to teach our brains to access those healing frequencies using a traditional and authentic method.

Some of the benefits of sound therapy include:
Improved mood
Better sleep
Reduced stress and anxiety
Easier access to meditative state
