    Hello friends,

    This is my little Buddha altar. I am at the very beginning and I have little knowledge. But my little altar means a great deal to me, and I give him my homage.

    Nice and neat altar!
    But if possible, light real incense joss preferably those natural one's like sandalwood or agar wood. These incense are better quality and are not chemical based which emit toxic smoke which are bad for health and environment. Also more respectful to Buddha.
    If using candles best to use those ghee (酥油) type because again they are natural which are more conducive to environment, humans and unseen beings. Put some real flowers and 1 to 3 cups of unboiled water.
    When we do offerings to Buddha, we must understand the significance of the things we are offering.
    1. Incense with it's fragrant smell remind of good conduct
    2. Lights (candle or light bulb) remind us of the wisdom of light dispelling the darkness of ignorance
    3. Flowers remind us of the impermanence of all things, nothing last forever no matter how beautiful or ugly they may be
    4. Water remind is of the purity in our thoughts, speech and body

    I ordered a water bowl and a butter lamp first. It will take a few weeks for them to arrive from China. I look forward to the changes and am grateful for the references.

    Best hommage to the Buddha, Dhamma and Sangha is our effort in practising the Dhamma. Nice altar, by the way
