When Music Museum of Nepal was established its main aims were the preservation and conservation of folk musical instruments. It has now taken on the additional work of recording folk musicians, singers, and dancers audio visually for posterity. These recordings are also used to promote interest in the museum's work. Field research is ongoing and there is a regular monthly, new moon programme of concerts and meetings. The themes of these events are varied, always interesting and have concentrated on the music and/or folk songs of particular ethnic groups, have focused on a particular (often rare) instrument, have featured famous singers and musicians or have been dedicated to the memory of a beloved, past singers or musicians.

In Nepali artworks, Lord Buddha and all Buddhist monks or Lamas and especially Medicine Buddha carry a begging bowl; this traditional brass bowl was and is also used for healing as well as for collecting their daily food. The bowl was placed on the part of the body that was sick and was made to resonate by beating with a stick or by chanting healing mantra across it.
