Make an offering of water, flowers or (candle) light in the glass in Buddha’s hands. Offerings are an old custom in both Western and Eastern cultures. In Buddhist traditions it is often accompanied by a visualization and mantra. Imagine, for example, that the water, the flowers or the light in the glass multiply infinitely and fill the space around you. Let this act of generosity go hand in hand with a wish (said out loud or thought quietly) to be happy and/or to be a benefit to others. This simple yet powerful ritual will give your mood a positive boost and make the world a little more beautiful!
