In Tibet, people light butterlamps filled with yak butter. Here, we don’t have any yaks so we use nice scented candles. They are cleaner and easier to get over here and they are light offerings also.

An offering of light is a powerful method for destroying the darkness of ignorance and increasing our wisdom. Offering light temporarily makes our mind clear and sharp during meditation, and creates the causes to have clear eyesight. Also, offering candles with steady, long lasting flames crates the causes to have a long life.

As with incense, we advise you not to light the candles by yourself without an adult with you.
