The Cherin is a modern Buddhist ‘orin’ bell forged and polished to create an object of visual beauty and exquisite tone. Like other singing bells of the Buddhist tradition each Cherin is unique, with a distinctive sound that will mature and grow in richness as the years pass. Hand-crafted in the heartland of Japan’s Buddhist metalworks, the Japan Sea town of Takaoka, the Cherin can be used as a call to meditation for the individual or group, and will remain forever a thing of beauty to be treasured and enjoyed.

Do not place the Cherin near heat or in direct sunlight, and avoid drafty locations and cold, as these can discolor the metal and wood. Do not place the Cherin on the floor or low places, nor above the height of anyone’s head. Take care that the Cherin is never positioned where it might fall, as damage or injury can result if the bell falls on, or is stepped on, by anyone.
Always take care that the Cherin is on a stable platform and cannot fall. Allowing the bell to fall can cause damage or injury. When moving the Cherin carry only the main bell. Attempting to carry it with the stick and felt pad together may result in one or more falling, resulting in damage or injury. Only use the Cherin for its intended purpose, and be sure that it is always securely stored out of reach of children. Do not allow children to use or touch the Cherin, as unanticipated, serious injury may result. As a safety precaution never to use a damaged Cherin. A damaged Cherin cannot be repaired.
