Mandala base

Buddha Shakyamuni taught that to reach the awakened state of all Buddhas one needs to gather the accumulations of merit and wisdom. It is taught that a supreme skillful method for accumulating vast amounts of merit is the practice of making offerings embraced with the view of the threefold purity. To offer all that we cling to, for the benefit of others, is the main point of a mandala offering and constitutes a profound skillful means of the Dharma.

For daily mandala offering, one uses a mandala base plate and offers heaps of grain and precious stones while chanting the offering prayer. We have made available a set consisting of an oxidised copper mandala plate carved with images of the four continents and eight sub-continents; together with an offering cloth and a cloth bag.
