This simple chime with three little bells, is die-cut in pressed brass and hand-finished with rudraska seeds. Om is an internationally recognised symbol for, amongst other things, spirituality, truth and divinity. Described as a cosmic or mystical sound, it adds momentum and energy to something and is a multi-faith symbol used in prayer, sacred texts and in every day yoga practices, the world over. Rudraska is a shield against negative energies, so especially good when hung in a bedroom as it is said to aid sleep.
