Buddhist Antique Leaded Crystal Meditation Offering Bowl for blessing all sentient beings
A meditation bowl can hold meditation accessories such as mala beads, crystals, Tibetan Medicine, Gold, or water. Or you can use it alone as a meditation tool, to serve as a reminder of the goal of theBuddhist practice to develop these qualities in yourself. You can dedicate your development to the benefit of all sentient beings.
I’ve always felt my meditation bowls and other tools were not for decorative purposes. The seller feels the same way, saying on the sales page: “[An altar is] not for fame, showing off wealth, or to increase pride, but rather to reduce one’s mental afflictions & to seek the ability to help all sentient beings.”
Since this meditation bowl is a one-of-a-kind item, there were no ratings on the site.
