A Practical Guide to making Buddhist Water Offerings with Prayers for World Peace

May 18 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am


A Practical workshop to learn how to make daily water offerings, a special method for accumulating merit and preparing your mind for successful meditation.

In front of an image of Buddha on our shrine we set up beautiful offerings. We may arrange a row, or many rows, of seven offering substances: water for drinking, water for bathing, flowers, incense, light, perfume and food. These can be offered as actual substances or as water. The seven substances represent the objects that delight the senses. 

Join in to learn about the significance of making water offerings and how to do it. 

The workshop will be followed by Prayers for World Peace and tea. 

Everyone welcome!
