This new digital timer is a streamlined version of our popular Enso Pearl Timer. The enso (Japanese for circle), signifying enlightenment, is one of the most important symbols in Zen. Usually painted with a single clockwise brush stroke, the enso finds a new form in this innovative meditation timer and clock, the central feature of which is a digital circle that is gradually brushed on-screen as the time of a sitting session passes.
The Enso Asariís sculpted outer shell (asari is a small clam found off the coast of Japan) rests easily in the palm of your hand and its lightweight design makes it easily portable. The Enso Asari's Timer can be set as a single or repeat countdown timer or as a stopwatch (count-up) timer. Singing bowl chimes recorded from Tibetan and Japanese singing bowls gently indicate the completion of a timed period.
