A copper bowl with a wooden baton to play with.

OriginEdit

Gendun Drup (1391-1474) is also known as the 1st Dalai Lama, though he was named posthumously. His birth name (according to the Tibetan Buddhist Resource Center) was Péma Dorje. He received his new name upon taking the vows of a monk from the Narthang Monastery at the age of 20. By the middle of his life, Gedun Drupa had become one of the most esteemed scholar-saints in the country, and he ended up writing several texts in his later years.

Tradition states that Palden Lhamo, the female guardian spirit of the sacred lake, Lhamo La-tso, promised the First Dalai Lama in a vision "...that she would protect the reincarnation lineage of the Dalai Lamas." This was not formally set up until the 2nd Dalai Lama came to be, however.

EffectsEdit

This artifact puts listeners in a trance when the user rubs the baton in a clockwise motion. If left in the trance for long periods of time, listeners will enter a comatose state. To stop the effect, hit the bowl's rim with the baton.

CollectionEdit

Collected from Paris, France by Agents Donovan and Jinks in February 2013.

NotesEdit

  • The original user who places listeners into a trance must be the one to remove them from it. Neutralizing the Bowl has no effect on listeners in the trance.
