Chau Gong 10″ with Stand
Since ancient times Saturn has been associated with Capricorn. The thinking of usefulness is very closely related to Saturn. It supports the ability for concentration, the general process of gaining consciousness and shows very clearly karmic connections. It brings structure and order.
Allow the Paiste Saturn Gong to help you awaken your consciousness and focus your concentration to your work at hand — the work that you in the fullness of your being bring to the Universe.
Venus is the goddess of love, beauty and partnership. She points to the best pathway for social harmony in each of our lives and tells us where we struggle with confidence and self-esteem. She helps us find a strong sense of our own self-worth and value. Working with a Venus Gong can be very beneficial for a soul who incarnated with Taurus prominent in her or his chart. To balance things out, let us also acknowledge that Venus also rules Libra, that balancer, and the autumn in the Northern Hemisphere.
Each gong and gong player is a conduit for the healing energy being created and channeled, and the gong player gets healed by healing. Like Chiron, the wounded healer, your capacity for healing can be increased by your realization of your personal wounds. By understanding one’s own inner cosmos, the gong player can better relate to other’s pain, and from there, create greater healings for more.
The movements of Venus may affect you more strongly if you’re born in the second month of spring, the time when new growth is in full swing, when the earth is buzzing and all of nature is beautiful and blooming. Yes, we’re running with the bulls here – Taurus – the sign ruled by Venus.
Paiste Symphonic Gongs are works of sonic mastery. Their flat, scraped surface meets a dark rim that flows back from the face creating a unique shape. They are hand-hammered from nickel silver in the European gong-making tradition. They are not tuned but tend to fall within a certain range at a given size.
This style comes with the classic Paiste logo at the top of the face. The presence or absence of the logo will not affect the overall sound of the gong. In choosing, it all comes down to the overlap of your aesthetic preference and gong availability.
The lightweight metal, the unique shape, and the scraped face all combine to create an overall sound that is very clean and meditative, with rich, beautiful harmonics that expand over the deep fundamental tone.
“Symphonic” doesn’t refer strictly to the orchestral use of the word “symphony,” but goes to the root of the word, to the unity of harmonic sounds and the experience of sound in its entirety. These gongs create a symphony of sounds for the listener. They are perfect for musicians, Kundalini yoga practitioners, sound healers, and therapists working with music and tone.
