    Light and incense offering

    Light and incense offering

    The offering of light and incense to the *Three Jewels and Three Roots is considered an act of generosity, which accumulates good karmic merit. Offered with prayer, mantra and mudrā – as calligraphed here in Umé script, with a brushed fire like word āloka, of light offering and swirling smoke like word dhūpa of incense offering. This is accompanied with further offering prays and mantra.

    The *accumulations of merit བསོད་ནམས་ is generated through the first five of the six paramitas and the sixth to the accumulation of wisdom – ཕ་རོལ་ཏུ་ཕྱིན་པ་དྲུག་ six transcendent perfections – ṣaṭpāramitā in Sanskrit.

    These are listed as:

    1. Generosity: to cultivate the attitude of generosity.
    2.  Discipline: refraining from harm.
    3. Patience: the ability not to be perturbed by anything.
    4. Diligence: to find joy in what is virtuous, positive or wholesome.
    5. Meditative concentration: not to be distracted.
    6. Wisdom: the perfect discrimination of phenomena, all knowable things.

    The sixth paramitas can be sub-divided into four, resulting in ten paramitas.
