Offering Bowls Altar, Beautifully Handcrafted Ritual Items

The traditional set of offerings, commonly represented by bowls of water, derives from the customary offerings presented to an honored guest in ancient India. The first bowl contains clear water for the newly arrived guests to drink. In the second bowl is water for the guest to wash his or her feet. In the third bowl are flowers, reminiscent of the crowns of flowers offered to women and the garlands offered to men. In the fourth bowl is incense, an offering to please the sense of smell. The fifth offering, pleasing to the sight, is bright light commonly in the form of a lamp, which like the sun and the moon illuminates the darkness. The sixth offering consists of a bowl of scented water. Seventh is an offering of food, commonly in the form of a torma or ritual cake. Eighth is an offering of sound. It is not represented on the altar, but can simply be imagined as beautiful music.

Our Offering Bowl is beautifully hand crafted, completely gold plate with fantastic detail. Flowers are beautifully carved symbolizing the purity of the body, speech, and mind, making them an incredible addition to your home decor.
