  2. Hi,amazing blog.Nice to see your post with wishing bell.I have some words to share with symbolization of great bell and drums in Buddhism.The morning bell stirs individuals from their delusive dreams.The evening drum moves the qualities of the Dharma,the teachings of Buddha.The morning bell and nighttime drum serve to stir the individuals,remind them to practice determinedly and caution them not to wind up apathetic.They help to awakening the deceived and befuddled conscious creatures.Good day.
