This Mandala Offering Practice Set is handmade of 926 silver, carved by master from Patan, Nepal. This set has design of eight auspicious symbols around each of the layer. A traditional multi-tiered mandala offering set, exquisitely hand-carved from copper. Representing all that is beautiful and precious in the universe being offered up to the Buddhas, mandala offerings generate immense merits that will help propel you towards Enlightenment.

The mandala offering is one of the main preliminary practices in both Sutric and Tantric Buddhism. On the Sutric level, the generation of merits is necessary in order to gain insight into the Buddha’s teachings and commentaries. On the Tantric level, mandala offerings are compulsory to gain the realizations of the deity. As merits are essential in one’s spiritual growth, the importance of mandala offerings lies in their efficacy to gather merits in the shortest time possible.

Mandala Offering is the practice of the Paramita of Generosity.
