Our set of seven silver offering bowls are of the same high quality standards that are used in the Tibetan monasteries. These Tibetan offering bowls feature full silver plating and elegant hand engravings. Additionally, our Nepali craftsmen have been creating Tibetan offering bowls for many generations. As a result, we can offer a world class set of seven silver offering bowls at a very reasonable price.
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.
The use of these offering bowls will enhance your Buddhist practice and generosity. Leave the symbolic offerings out on your Buddhist altar every morning, then remove them at night. If done properly with dedication, the use of offering bowls will be received delightfully by the Buddhas.
