According to Hans Cousto, the Paiste Sun Gong tone represents for him “a door from one world into another.” Cousto says with this tone you are helped to “exit from the known, mechanistic, and physical world…” and can enter ” a new world– a magic world.” Because of his calculations being based on the speed of light, he suggests that meditation to this tone “will lead the listener to a state beyond good and bad, shame and guilt, beyond space and time, knowledge and wisdom, action and rest, being and non-being.” Find your space with this gong, and he feels you will get beyond space, and this frequency can lead to a place out of duality, where you are reunited with the Creator.

Via Tone Of Life: “A magnificent range of medium and high tones is derived from this small 22” (56 cm) gong. Played with large and well balanced mallet, we can play on this gong like a drum and a gong simultaneously. This gong plays best as a handheld and is easy and light to carry, weighing only 9lbs (4 kg).
“The Dance Gong is well suited for outdoor ceremonies. It has a special wooden handle on the rope which makes it easy on the hand when held for long periods of time. As this gong is crafted with a tight surface it does not splash easily! One of our best selling gongs.”
