The Master of Tibetan Singing Bowls:
Shree Krishna Shahi was the first person in the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal to work with singing bowls. He learned about singing bowls from his adopted Tibetan grandfather, a Lama who came to Nepal for several years during the early eighties. Shree’s first encounter with Tashi Lama occurred in 1981. The old monk frequented Swoyambhu, Nepal, every winter, where he rested for several months before his return trip to Tibet. At the time of their meeting, Tashi Lama was carrying five Tibetan singing bowls. He showed Shree the bowls and taught him how to play, meditate and relax with them. Shree was fascinated, bought the bowls and practiced.
