Musical instruments such as percussion, strings, and flutes have always been a part of the Buddhist tradition. Of the many musical instruments that have played a role in Buddhism, perhaps percussion instruments are the most important. Traditional Buddhist temples, for example, all have a large Temple bell or gong found within the shrine area and smaller ‘sawari’ gongs, in the altar areas. At major gatherings, it is not unusual to hear gongs and cymbals used to introduce the Sutra (scriptural narrative).
