You may already be entangled in the variety of shapes and colors of the so-called “menrak” of altar lodges. Let’s deal with this topic:

Expanded practice performed during the Drubchen or Retreat contains four parts related to four activities:
1) pacifying; 2) multiplying; 3) subordinate; 4) angry.

And further, each part contains both offerings: amrita and rakta. Each offering requires its own unique spoon. The system is not complicated: activity is associated with the shape of the spoon, and the offering is related to the color of the stone.
