There are various patterns on the bell, and the pattern on the upper half is a circle of lotus flowers, representing the lotus seat for practice. The handle of the bell also has the shape of a Buddha head, and there is a metal bell tongue in the middle of the body. The opening part of the dharma bell represents wisdom, a female symbol, while the bell tongue refers to the "sound of emptiness", which is hung on the ring engraved with dharma. The bell often has the deep meaning of alarming and alertness. The outer ring of the bell represents the mandala on the outer layer of the mandala.
