Mandala Offering Guide (E/F/G)
TAKE THE CONFUSION OUT OF PREPARING FOR YOUR MANDALA OFFERING ACCUMULATION
Many people who have completed their mandala offering accumulation will tell you what a joyful and magical practice it is. But for someone who's just about to start the practice, it can all look a little bit daunting. You might think:
What do I need to get started? How do I dye rice with saffron? How do I do a thirty-seven point offering properly anyway? Which prayers do I need? And how do I know whether I've got all the information I need?
ADD TO FAVORITES
Zam has three new items that answer all these and many other commonly-asked questions about mandala offering. They take the confusion out of the practice and help get you started, confident in the knowledge that you are doing the practice properly:
