This set of seven copper offering bowls is hand-made locally in Boudhanath, Nepal. The five sense pleasure offerings - beautiful form, sound, smell, taste and texture - is painstakingly carved onto each bowl as an additional offering.
In Buddhist teachings, the act of giving and offering is venerated. It both helps to reduce our habitual tendency of clinging to things as “mine”, and also accumulates a vast amount of merit. Thus, offering bowls are a timeless method by which you can make offerings daily on your shrine to the Three Jewels – Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.
Dimensions: 6.5 cm (diameter); 3.7 cm (height); 7 bowls per set
