How We Are Helping Nepal
Deep within the Himalayan region… Nepal is home to the extraordinary, world-class artisans who construct each Himalayan Bowl. This page is dedicated to telling their story and spreading awareness of the devastating 2015 earthquakes – along with how you can help support them as well.
The 2015 Nepal Earthquakes
Every singing bowl purchased from Himalayan Bowls helps the traditional artisans of Nepal to joyfully continue their craft and make a comfortable living for their extended families. Your use of singing bowls is a direct connection to the world’s most talented artisans and the larger singing bowl tradition stretching back 1,000 years. Further, every singing bowl purchase helps people in a very difficult situation.
In 2015, Nepal suffered a series of devastating earthquakes. They are still recovering today and export of products like singing bowls are a huge help to their recovery. The economy of Nepal is largely dependent on handicrafts exports. Singing bowls are one of the most beloved Himalayan handicrafts. Singing bowls are collected around the world and each singing bowl purchase directly helps the people of Nepal live a better life and support their families. Himalayan Bowls is committed to helping our friends and long time business partners in Nepal as they recover from the earthquakes.
Supporting Nepal After The Catastrophe
Immediately after the quakes, we ramped up our purchasing and imported extra singing bowls and singing bowl accessories. We also increased our donations in an effort to send as much money to Nepal as possible. We offer our singing bowls at the lowest possible prices in order to help the traditional craftspeople. With your help, they were able to quickly rebuild their nation and return to stability. Our trade in singing bowls directly helps this vibrant culture and the livelihood of many people. Our efforts continue to help. We have increased our manufacturing and importing and each year bring over more singing bowls than ever before. We help to employ 100 workers and their families in Nepal.
Every singing bowl purchase directly helps each wonderful Nepalese artisan live a comfortable life. You not only get a beautiful product with very special, nearly magical, properties, you also get to really help improve the lives of working artisans and their families. On their behalf, I thank you. Although as a singing bowl enthusiast, I know the sound and vibration of the singing bowls is thanks enough. Whether you buy a new bowl or one of our fine antiques, the money is reinvested into purchasing new handmade singing bowls and accessories. We support our singing bowl makers in Nepal through direct investment – which creates more opportunities to cultivate their life’s work. Thank you for your support! Every purchase matters. We appreciate you spreading the word, thinking of us for gifts and sharing the vibrations with everyone you know. Sound has a very beneficial effect. Keep sharing - the good vibrations are felt all the way around the world in Kathmandu, Nepal.
