In Chinese temples, gongs are struck 108 times because it’s believed that sentient beings have 108 types of worries. The teaching is this – “upon hearing the gong, worries will cease, wisdom will grow”: Nothing has the ability to transport us to another time and place quite like the brilliant resonance of a gong. For over a thousand years, gongs of various types have played an important role in both the religious and secular music of many Asian cultures. Gongs were sounded to chase away evil spirits, warn of invading armies, heal the sick and invoke the spirits of the dead. To be touched by a gong was said to bring happiness and strength. Today, this revered instrument of warriors, emperors, princes and priests adds a special aura to any setting.
