History of Butter Lamp offering
Light offerings symbolize Buddha Shakyamuni’s enlightenment over 2,500 years ago. Every light offering celebrates this and brings with it the accumulation of a great deal of merit.
For practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism, a light offering also contains the wish to achieve Buddhahood and the strong intention to recognize the clear light at the time of death. Light offerings are also closely linked to transitional phases in life.
Light offerings are preferably offered in front of consecrated depictions of buddhas, bodhisattvas, or high-ranking masters who symbolize perfectly awakened loving-kindness, compassion, and wisdom.
The Buddha statue, the Tara shrine, the Karmapa shrine, and the Medicine Buddha statue in the stupa are representatives of these. They make our meditation rooms good and auspicious places for Buddhist light offerings.
Light Offering Prayer

After lighting a candle or a butter lamp or any lights, the prayer should be recited in conjunction with the visualization.
