Rincense Orin Bell and Incense Holder
The Orin bell and incense stick holder combined in one elegant vessel.
"Orin" is a traditional Buddhist instrument that is sounded when reading sutras, also referred to as "singing bowl". Commonly, it has been believed from ancient times in Japan that the gentle sound of "Orin" purifies places by exorcising evil spirits and bad vibes. Therefore "Orin" became an essential household instrument.
Kyujo in Takaoka City, a long established manufacturer for religious objects has created a contemporary range of orin bells to better complement today's lifestyle.
In their products have been combining both â€“ Buddhist culture of Japan and tremendous efforts of generations of craftsman who developed the traditional techniques of metal works.
Kyujo Orin™ s sound is remarkable, something warm and gentle. The sounds make you feel calm your minds. Embracing a feeling which cannot be described in words, sinking deep and echoing far into infinityâ€¦ Their sound can last for a minute, even more, when you tinkle it lightly.
