The earliest known wind-chimes can be traced back to 1100 B.C. China. It was believed throughout Southeastern Asia that bells promoted peace and good health. Especially important in Buddhism, bells are a critical part of honoring "the Three Treasures” -- the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha. Ringing a bell before prayer or during meditation is meant to “call for the protection of the heavenly deities” and also to focus the mind on the task at hand. Because of their ornate nature, wind bells were also a sign of wealth.
