Dzambala encompasses all of Buddha families. The five forms of Dzambala have vowed before the Buddha to liberate all sentient beings and protect the dharma. Dzambala is the bodhisattva of wealth and prosperity, providing freedom from the suffering of poverty so that one can focus on the path of spirituality rather than a materialistic focus. If we have obstacles to prosperity making an offering with a sincere heart and without selfishness, thinking that all sentient beings can have wealth, and even what you receive you will share freely. One then accumulates the causes for happiness, obtains good fortune, and receives uncountable benefits. Dzambala also can transform obstacles and failures into success very quickly.

Offering bowls are an essential part of any alter or shrine. You are making offers to the Buddha and the bodhisattva’s. Each bowl represents a specific offering. Once made they help all other sentient beings as described bellow.


  • Water for drinking for those in the lower realms that suffer from thirst
  • Water to bath wash away negativity and obstacles
  • Flowers to benefit those making the offering
  • Incense to aid in the realization of the profound of discipline. It has been said that those that have perfected discipline is surrounded by a sweet fragrance
  • Lamp to lighten the path to enlightenment
  • Perfume is so negative patterns caused by The Three Poisons can be purified
  • Food to help those starving and that we begin to understand that meditation is the food we can all survive on
  • Music to please the sense of the deities.

You fill the bowls with water everyday from left to right, and in the evening pour the water out of the bowls from right to left. Dry them, and then turn them over. Pour the used water on plants, the yard, never throw it down the toilet or sink. You can also use real flowers, incense, and a small vile of perfume, food and something musical in the appropriate bowls. All others you can fill with water. Remember water is always acceptable for any bowl. Food and flowers need to go when they start to decay. You can also use torma’’s which are statues of flowers, incense, and food that are put in the corresponding bowls; you don’t have to take them ever out of the bowls. You see these often in dharma centers. If you are interested in tormas they can be found here.
