Description of System:

THE GONG  The existence of the Gong dates back to the Bronze Age, around 3500 BC. Evidence suggests that the Gongs existed at this time in Mesopotamia. Myth has it that sacred gongs included pieces of meteorites that fell from the heavens.

Since the time of Buddha in 600BC, all sacred Chinese gongs have been inscribed with the two Mandarin Chinese characters "Tai Loi", which means "Happiness has Arrived", sweeping the darkness by bringing in the Light. The gong ancient use was as an initiation tool for enlightenment, etheric projection and exorcism of negative spirits. It has also been used by Tibetan monks, and the Chinese, for centuries as an aid to meditation.

There are instruments and there are instruments. Among the latter is the gong, that instrument which can produce all the sounds within our hearing range. The oldest known gongs are over 5,000 years old and come from Asia Minor. In the East, this instrument has been used in many different religious contexts, for example, in yoga meditation. The West however, is only acquainted with it through its thunderous, yet seldom heard sounds in symphony orchestras.

Paiste has taken traditional gong designs of the East and made a number of important changes with regard to design, construction and tuning. These gongs have been developed over the last 35 years in Europe by the Paiste company in consultation with scientists, musicians and therapeutic practitioners. The Gongs are made of a bronze. nickel and silver alloy which has been highly condensed through a process of heating and rolling under pressure. This process brings the metal to a consistency which carries minimal internal resistance and eliminates any possibility of cracks or fissures when used correctly. Gongs are tuned to create a harmonious blend of sustained resonance.

The Gong is like a stargate from which brings in a vortex of energy which facilitates our connection with the infinite higher self. Creating a synergy effect bringing the listener to know the oneness of all effortlessly, while recharging the body and strengthening the nervous system all at once.
