Mandala Offering

Mandala offering is a preliminary practice for accumulating merit, in which one symbolically offers the entire universe to the field of merit. The word maṇḍala can be broken into two parts: maṇḍa means the 'essence' or 'centre and circumference' and la means 'taking hold of'. Therefore we can say that mandala means to take hold of the basis or essence for accomplishing all the glorious qualities of the higher realms and the kingdom of Dharma, the sacred truths of cessation and the path.
