"Lovely Chime"

I was delighted with this Chime of Compassion. The quality is excellent. The brass chime is ornate and well made and attaches to the wood base with a simple twist. My daughter absolutely loved this gift and was charmed as the receiver!

"Tibetan Chime of Compassion"

Received as a gift. Love it! It is said that the syllables of the mantra inscribed carry the vibrations of compassion, wisdom and love. What a great gift to be able to share with all lifeforms.

"Not thrilled"

To call this a "chime" is generous. Wish I had listened to the other reviews that commented on the quality of this. Yes, it dings when you strike it -- it's metal. There's nothing special about it. I'll keep it only because it's one of a few Christmas gifts for my daughter and because she's young enough to think it's "cool".

"A Gift to a Tibetan Friend"

My Tibetan friend recently lost her father in Tibet and I selected this gift to show my compassion for her loss and assist, in her cultural manner, to help her feel peace around her father's death in a tradition she was raised with and I thought being made by the refugees who fled to India was extra appropriate in this case. She absolutely loved it and says it is so lovely.

"Nice, but I received a lemon"

The bolt which is integral to the curved arm and necessary for assembly was badly bent and had stripped teeth. I had to cut off 1/3 of an inch of the bolt so I could get a straight bolt with enough good teeth to screw it into the base. The item was wrapped in tissue paper, no box so it was inconvenient as a gift. The item otherwise is very nice and attractive, and would make a good gift for someone into meditation.

"Beautiful gift for my step-dad"

I purchased this chime as a gift for my step-dad. He is a Tibetan Buddhist. I know it is going to mean a lot to him. The chime is beautiful and it sounds lovely. It is heavier than I thought it would be. It is the perfect size. Thank you very much, Novica!
