Nepal is the hub for astrology and shamanism. As in the past, when there was non-existence of antibodies and modern medicine, great researchers developed the concept of Astrology to find about one’s life and its characteristics on the basis of birth date and time, along with place. This practice is still done by the astrologers known in local language by “Jyotishi”. Similarly, when there was pain or stress of temporary nature in the body, they invented a special bowl with a unique combination of metals known as singing bowls or healing bowls. With the vibration produced from that object, people used to heal themselves, and hence this practice in today’s date as well is prevalent in some communities in Kathmandu. This itself is a 3 thousand year old practice in Tibet and Nepal.
