Ghanta - Bells In Hinduism – The Symbolism

Ghanta, or Bells, in Hinduism symbolizes nadabrahmam or the absolute being conceived as sound. It reverberates the sound of ‘om.’


Goddess Saraswati resides in the tongue of the bell.

Brahma on the face; Rudra on the belly, and Vasuki on the stem.

The entire body of the bell signifies the divinity of time.

It is also believed that using bells carrying the insignia of Gods and Goddesses mitigates fear about birth and death.

The bell is to awaken the devotee who is entering the temple. The mind of the devotee is preoccupied with numerous thoughts. So just before entering the temple we ring the bell to keep the mind focused on the deity.
