Mandala Offering (Make the hand mudra)

This ground, anointed with perfume, strewn with flowers,
Adorned with Mount Meru, four continents,
the sun and the Moon:
I imagine this as a Buddha-field and offer it.
May all living beings enjoy this pure land!

Advice for Mandala offerings from Geshe Gelek

Making mandala offerings creates a lot of merit, which is the cause for success. It is also the cause to create positive attentiont hroughout the world, so when people think about you, they will generate a positive mindset. This practice of generosity has been taught by great lineage practitioners.”
