For practices of the Inner Tantras, one needs the inner offerings of amrita, rakta and torma. Amrita purifies anger, rakta purifies desire and torma purifies ignorance. These inner offerings are a profound way to rid ourselves of our ordinary dualistic fixation, especially between that which is pure and impure. Inner offerings are skilful means in order for us to realise non-dualistic wisdom and the primordial purity of all phenomena.
To hold the amrita and rakta, we have made beautifully handcrafted and finished skull-shaped cups with the correct characteristics. These skullcups are a support for our visualisation during our practice. We also included the proper amrita and rakta spoons. The amrita spoon is marked with a turquoise stone and the rakta with a red coral stone.
Dimensions: 13 cm (height from base to tip of skullcup)
