First fill the 9-litre bowl. Then pour 4 litres to the 4-litre bowl (there are 5 litres in the 9-litre bowl afterwards) and pour out the water from the 4-litre bowl. And again pour 4 litres to the 4-litre bowl and empty it. Then pour the remaining litre to the 4-litre bowl but this time keep it there. Fill the 9-litre bowl to the top for the second time and pour water to fill the 4-litre bowl to the top. Thus the required 6 litres stay in the 9-litre bowl.
