Tingshas (ding-shas, cymbals) are used as musical offerings in spiritual practices and during meditation practice, at regular intervals, in order to maintain concentration. “Musical offerings” are common during pujas (praying rituals) when a number of instruments are used: bells, drums, cymbals and horns. Musical offerings are indeed standard in many Tibetan Buddhist and Hindi rituals. Today they are used by these and lay people alike. They are used with Feng Shui, meditation, cleansing, healing and alignment.
