Eight Grand Offerings as a Buddhist disciple, we usually be taught to give some offerings to The Buddha and Bodhisattva. This teaching teaches us to give fund so that our lives will be prosperous both in the present life and in the future life. This is in accordance with the law of Karma as we give we will receive, so we should not hesitate to do anything to give. We offer an assortment of offerings on the altar at every Buddhist Temple / Buddhist Monastery in the Tantrayana tradition which is known as Vajrayana tradition also, besides offer water, incense, flower, fragrances, light and lamp, food and fruits, and sounds offerings by using ritual musical instrument. We always offer Eight Grand Offerings in the form of Umbrella, Goldfish, Jewel Pot, Kamala Flower, Fame Snail, Wealth Ribbon, Victory Banner and Grand Wheel.
The Eight Grand Offerings can also be made permanent, made from the carving of woods or stones / ceramics. In the Rituals or Ceremonies, we also invite The Sacred Gods and Goddesses to attend and present The Eight Grand Offerings to The Buddha and Bodhisattva.
