This gold gilded set of eight Tibetan offering bowls includes removable stainless steel dishes with each bowl. Additionally, the eight bowls include engravings of the eight Tibetan auspicious symbols. Used in combination with the Tibetan offering ritual, the auspicious symbols will bring the blessings of the Buddhas into your home.
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.
Therefore, devotees perform the offering ritual to alleviate greed and increase their generosity. Simply fill the bowls in the morning and leave them on your Buddhist altar. Then in the evening, empty the bowls and carefully clean them with a dry cloth. Our Tibetan offering bowls are specially designed to be aesthetically pleasing and easy to use.
