Traditionally, there are seven offering substances: water for drinking, water for bathing, flowers, incense, light, perfume, and food. However, water is often substituted because it is visualized as pure nectar by the Buddhas. Additionally, water is plentiful in Tibet and devotees are encouraged to be generous with their time and possessions just as they would give away water.
Symbolic offerings done properly at your Buddhist altar will help you to alleviate the defilements of greed and craving. As a result, you can enhance your generosity and virtue. Additionally, you will bring the blessings of the Buddhas into your home.
