Tibetan Tingsha also known as Ting-Sha (Tib.: ཏིང་ཤགས་, Wylie: ting shags) are small cymbals used in prayer and rituals by Tibetan Buddhist practitioners. They are joined together by a leather strap.
Traditionally, the tingsha were used during some specific Tibetan rituals, such as offerings to the "hungry ghosts". While today they are commonly found as a markers of the beginning and ending of meditation sessions, different religious studies, yoga classes etc.
Unlike cheap tourist junk decorated with rought carving, these cymbals have been decorated with accurate carving of Ashtamangala (Eight Auspicious Symbols) and made from high quality bronze alloy and produce a clear, long and high pitched tone.
