Offering a Mandala to the Buddha as a symbol of offering the universe and all that is contained it is one of the essential practices in Tibetan Buddhism.

Mandala Offering is the practice of the Paramita of Generosity.

The objects of offering are not only limited to mundane precious valuables and practitioner’s own body, speech and mind but also include the merit and benefits beyond the mundane world which are made without attachment and for the benefit of all sentient beings. Before engaging the Four Preliminaries one should contemplate on the Four Common Preliminaries, sometimes called the Four Thoughts that Turn the Mind.

2. The impermanence of life.
3. The infallibility of actions, cause and effect.
4. The flaws of cyclic existence.
According to tradition, each preliminary is required to practice for 111111 times.
