Kapala Set
In Tibetan monasteries, a kapala is used symbolically to hold bread or dough cakes, Torma, and wine instead of blood and flesh as offerings to wrathful deities, such as the ferocious Dharmapala ("defender of the faith"). The dough cakes are shaped to resemble human eyes, ears, and tongues. It offers liberation to gods and deities to ensure their devotion. It is said that the offerings will be transformed into the Wisdom Nectar, a liquid form of the Enlightened Mind of the Deity.

Offering Bowl
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 a bright light, commonly in the form of a lamp, which like the sun, 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 be imagined as beautiful music.

The Serkyem, also known as Golden Drink, is part of the Dharma Protector's practice. In Tibetan, Ser means "golden," and Kyem means "beverage."

It is offered by pouring the beverage into a cup-like wine glass and placed into a lower bowl. The beverage is poured into the cup during the offering, where the liquid overflows into the lower bowl. The symbol of the overflowing liquid is highly auspicious because it represents an abundant flow of merits.
