Our set of seven gold plated offering bowls was crafted by world class artisans using traditional methods. These same artisans have been supplying the Tibetan monasteries with their water offering bowls for nearly 1000 years. As a result, when you purchase a set of Tibetan gold plated offering bowls you can rest assured it is of monastic 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.
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.
