Please enjoy our uniquely crafted set of Tibetan offering bowls. Devotees will appreciate that each offering bowl features elegant engravings with silver/gold plating. Additionally, the offering bowls are of monastic quality and they were carved by our artisans in Patan, Nepal. Indeed, our craftsmen in Patan have been the preferred source of the Tibetan monasteries for many centuries. Therefore, when you buy this 3.5″ set of Tibetan offering bowls you can rest assured that it is of world class quality.
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.
Please remember that proper placement and use of our Tibetan offering bowls is encouraged to enhance your Buddhist practice. The symbolic offering will decrease defilements such as greed and craving. Additionally, the offering ritual will enhance generosity and bring the delight of the Buddhas.
