Water bowl offering

Water offering

Tulku Dakpa Rinpoche illustrates the act of offering in this short video.

“Offering is very important when accumulating merit. When we offer there are many purities, such as the object; Buddha, Dharma and Sangha. Offerer has to have pure mind: with devotion, confidence and joy of offering. The offered substances has to be pure. They are not, if you offer something with your clinging or desire, nor if you buy wrongly, gain it by killing, steal it, get it with lying etc.

We are offering water: water is pure and it used to be free in ancient times and it still is at Tibet. Thoughts such as “if i offer too much” or “If i offer too much, i don’t have myself” don’t arise. Water offering is very special.”
