Yes, the Chinese use them for meditation.

Similar to some bowl gongs out there that are sold as Japanese Gongs by quasi-Asian decor sites with names like Samadhi-ladi-dingdong dot com, or shaktimakti-overpricedimports-of all sorts dot com... but those they claim are Japanese gongs are not usually Japanese gongs.

The Black Ching Gong is similar to singing bowls that are sold as Tibetan singing bowls, but those are not really Tibetan, and are not even made in Tibet, but rather in India, by enterprising manufacturers who speak pretty good English.

The Black Ching Gong is a bowl gong.

Buddhists use this bowl to meditate. Sound healers and therapists like to add it to the soundscape as it is strong and soothing.

The Black Ching Gong is best played by striking the top edge, or rim, with the wood and rubber mallet that is provided with it. These bowl gongs produce beautiful tones, but are not well suited for 'singing'.

You can get remarkable tones that are both clarion and subtle. They stay in a specific range but sustain and hold for a good length of time.

All the Buddhas rise up and high five with their Buddha hands when they hear you call with this bowl, call out for the cessation of suffering, despite the suffering, because there can be no transcendence without the pain and separation first, and then the awareness of the pain and separation second, and then the struggle and transcendence from the transitory.

This Big Buddha is no less powerful than the GIANT BUDDHA is no less powerful than the Tiny Buddha...

…because they are all not about power but about awareness and consciousness and knowing-ness.

So all the sized Buddhas love to hear you ring this bowl gong and will blow mental body kisses your way when you play it.
