Offerings to a Buddhist altar

————————

(*) With the above, we offer a lotus throne to the deity (pema kamala ya sa tam), the deity and the visualization become inseparable (dza hung bam ho), and we present eight offerings: drinking water (argham), bathing water (padyam), flowers (pukpe), incense (dhupe), light (aloke), perfumed water (gendhe), food (newidye), and music (shabda). These may be accompanied by the appropriate mudras if one wishes.
