Making Light Offerings
Of all the methods for accumulating merit through generosity, offering light is one of the best.
We make light offerings as a means of accumulating merit and the wisdom which dispels the darkness of ignorance. We also offer them with the wish that their light dispel the torment of beings who suffer from the darkness (of ignorance).
Traditionally, butter lamps (lights) are also offered as a dedication to the dead in order to guide them after death with the dedication they make a strong spiritual connection with the Dharma.
Doing something actively to benefit others can help relieve the sense of helplessness often associated with grief.
You can offer for a loved one on a special occasion, for their long life, or for a new venture. Your offering can be dedicated for those who are suffering, facing difficulties, for situations in the world that touch your heart such as war, disasters, bushfires etc or you can offer lights as an expression of love, joy or gratitude.
Your dedication will be read out each week at the end of class, along with the general dedication.
The cost for a one hour of offering from 108 lights is $50.
