A wooden fish knocker is a percussion instrument used in Buddhist temples and monasteries. It is shaped like a fish and is made of wood, usually carved out of a single piece of wood. The knocker is hollow, with a small opening at the bottom for sound to escape.
During Buddhist ceremonies and rituals, the wooden fish knocker is struck with a wooden mallet, producing a deep and resonant sound that is said to purify the mind and spirit. The sound of the fish knocker is believed to represent the sound of the Buddha's teachings, and its use is meant to remind practitioners of the importance of mindfulness and concentration.
The wooden fish knocker has a long history in Buddhist traditions, with the earliest known examples dating back to ancient China. Today, it is still widely used in Buddhist communities around the world and is often found in meditation halls, temples, and monasteries.
Wooden fish is often placed on the left of the altar, alongside a bell bowl which is its metal percussion counterpart. Wooden fish rests on a small embroidered cushion to prevent unpleasant knocking sounds caused by the fish lying on the surface of a hard table or ground, and also to avoid damage to the instrument.
