In the Buddhist context, we train in making daily offerings as a skillful means to instil the habit of selfless generosity. Moreover, we start our day by creating merit and an uplifting frame of mind. Traditionally, a set of 7 bowls are arranged on one’s altar to symbolize the offering of drinking water, bathing water, flowers, incense, light, perfume, food (Tib. shalsé), and a conch with a kusha grass wand.
This set, in a light metal alloy, is very easy to clean and maintain and is great for travelling.
Each bowl measures 8cm diameter x ~3.5cm tall.
