Offering Bowls, White Metal 3"

Calculated at Checkout

Offering bowls are the vessels with which we make our generosity abundant. In the Buddhist tradition tracing back to ancient India, a set is composed of seven bowls, the contents of each one signifying a ritualized gift which one would give to a guest upon them visiting one's home. In sequential order, one would offer: drinking water, cleansing water, flowers, incense, light, perfume, and food. When offered upon one's altar with the correct motivation, the seven offerings can become a deep expression of generosity. Each time we make an offering, our heart grows a little more. This set is etched with intricate lotus petals blooming upon the entire outer surface of the bowls. Even the bottoms have a beautiful design. Both the outside and the inside are polished smooth. The inside is covered in tiny indentations from it's handmade process which gives it a nice natural finish. Special offerings need their own special temples.
