Modern wind chimes have their origins in Indian wind bells. By the second century CE, these wind bells were being hung on the corners of large pagodas with the purpose of scaring away birds and evil spirits. Later, wind bells were introduced to China and were also hung in temples, palaces and homes. Japanese glass wind bells known as Fūrin (風鈴) have been produced since the Edo period. Wind chimes are thought to be good luck in parts of Asia and are used in Feng Shui.
As just mentioned, according to Feng Shui, Bamboo wind chimes bring you good luck and good fortune. You should hang your bamboo wind chimes just outside your home, preferably at the main entry way to your home. Thus, you and your visitors will have the good luck and good fortune following you inside as you enter your dwelling.
Bamboo wind chimes produce a low natural sound, reminding us of some of nature’s sounds. Since the sounds of nature are found to be relaxing to most of us, placing bamboo wind chimes nearby will help to relax your whole family. They are said to calm the fast moving energies.
