Weighted OM Tuning Fork - 136.1 Hz
This weighted OM tuning fork vibrates at 136.1 Hz and it comes with a velveteen pouch.
Weighted tuning forks are excellent for working directly on the body.
According to the ancient wisdom tradition of Vedanta, OM is the primordial sound, the source sound of creation.
The Aitareya Brahmana of Rig Veda, in section 5.32, suggests that the three phonetic components of OM (pronounced AUM) correspond to the three stages of cosmic creation, and when it is toned, it celebrates the creative powers of the universe.
136.1 Hz is the standard frequency of the OM tuning fork, which is the frequency often used to tune the instruments for Indian temple music.
It is called "Sadja", or "Sa", and is the fundamental tone of the Sitar and Tambura.
The mid-OM tone is said to stimulate the Anahata (heart chakra), hence why is widely believed to be good for meditation and healing.
