Symbol: Buddha is a sanskrit word that means "the awakened one". Buddha is seen in Hinduism as the 9th incarnation of Vishnu, who decided to go down to earth to purify Hinduism. Buddha taught that every man could deliver himself from the wheel of rebirth with a correct inner attitude. His right hand represents vitarka mudra, or the transmission of Buddha's teaching. His other hand holds the alms bowl, which symbolizes renunciation.
The striker can be used in two ways to produce sound. It can be used to gently tap the side of the bowl, which produces a ringing sound, similar to a bell. Or, it can be run along the rim of the bowl to produce a hum. The hum will intensify with each pass of the wooden dowel and the bowl will sing.
