Glad to be able to offer some craft-items from Nepal. These are handmade and smaller imperfections can occur.

Kangling literally translated as "leg" (kang) "flute" (ling), is the Tibetan name for a trumpet or horn made out of a human tibia or femur, used in Tibetan Buddhism for various chöd rituals as well as funerals performed by a chöpa. Tradirtionally, a leg bone of a deceased person is used. Alternatively, the leg bone of a respected teacher may be used. The kangling may also be made out of wood. These are made of metal a bone (animal).

The kangling should only be used in chöd rituals performed outdoors with the chöd damaru and bell. In Tantric chöd practice, the practitioner, motivated by compassion, plays the kangling as a gesture of fearlessness, to summon hungry spirits and demons so that she or he may satisfy their hunger and thereby relieve their sufferings. It is also played as a way of "cutting off of the ego."

This listing is for the exact item picture in these pictures. The price is for one. The Picture with several Kangling is for reference and show more styles.

Length is approx 38 cm.
