Description

OFFERING OF THE FIVE SENSES (Tib. Dodyon Na Nga)

These are known as the offering of the five qualities of enjoyment. On the outer level they are the expressions of veneration towards the enlightened beings (the Buddha, deity, lama) and the practitioner will visualize the most beautiful and valuable objects. On the inner level the practitioner is reminded during preparation and presentation that these offerings actually represent all we possess, as everything we experience is as a result of what we perceive through the five doors. The mirror represents sight (in some traditions the mirror also represents the offering of pure thought); lute – sound; scarf – touch; incense – smell; fruit – taste. A powerful daily Mahayana Buddhist practice to conquer and overcome one’s greed.
