Ritual Objects

In this sector you will find a number of objects that are traditionally used during (Eastern) rituals.

Rituals are expressions of man or animal, which are to be repeated in certain circumstances. These expressions may consist of a few elements, but also a whole range of different elements. These ritual elements could be: posture, mimics, gestures (mudra), dance, song, word, sounds...
The appearance and wearing (or just the presence) of certain objects (as a way of disguise, painting, wearing a mask, a wand, a weapon, mantel or other attributes or symbols) often plays an important role in rituals. Anyway, a ritual is characterised by way of a recognisable pattern. Just like these kind of rituals when making a wish: blowing out the candles or singing a birthday song. Also raising your glass and drinking a toast are rituals. Certain occasions need rituals, like making a wish when seeing a falling star, or burning pictures when ending a relationship.

Rituals are very important. The familiar character of a ritual is important, for the individual, who feels at ease because of it, as well as for a society, where (shared) rituals are the binding agent between persons.
Every culture has its rituals. Mainly during important life changes, like (giving) birth, transit to adulthood, marriage, religious or social alliances and death. But also when someone wants to start all over and live a new life. 
In its most simple form, a ritual can be an almost unnoticeable nodding. As the other extreme it could be a long-lasting, exhausting happening, with intervening meditations.
Rituals are influencing the human mind, because they often cohere with the archetype, according to Jung. In psychology, certain ways of cumpulsive behaviour are also noted as rituals.

The Double Dorje (Crossed Vajra) is a Tibetan symbol meaning "indestructible". It embodies the brilliance of diamond-like illumination and symbolizes the indestructible source of power from which all else is born. It refers to the ritual object that is held in the right hand of a Lama during various religious ceremonies. The Dorje is a reminder of that which is enduring, invincible, and irresistible. 
The Double Dorje has the additional power to protect all that is sacred and mundane. Wearing the protective Double Dorje helps strengthen our core while it empowers one pointed focus and inner strength. It reminds us to serve the Sacred, which lives at the center of our being.

Mandala offering set cloissonee, red

Mandala literally means “circle” in Sanskrit (kyil-khor in Tibetan). Mandalas often refer to the representations of a particular buddha with his/her retinue. Such mandalas are arranged in a specific design that expresses the buddha qualities we all possess as our innate nature but that are currently obscured by adventitious defilements. In this case, however, the mandala sets are employed to represent the idealized universe filled with a multitude of precious offerings. The idealized universe has the mythic Mount Meru in the middle and is surrounded by the four great continents and attendant sub-continents.

Serkym offering set - brass

Traditional offering set, often used in Puja (prayer ceremonies), in Buddhism as well as in Hinduism.

Serkym sets are usually used for protecting practices when making offerings of black tea, milk or alcohol as part of the Puja ceremony. A small cup-like vessel inside a larger, wide vessel; the serkym, or “golden drink” is poured into the smaller vessel so that it overflows into the larger bowl beneath.

When we offer the serkym, it is symbolic for wishes coming to fruition and more good things manifesting. Serkym sets can be made of any material that can withstand liquid, but it is advised to offer the best material that we can afford as it is an offering to the enlightened beings. 

The Bodhisattva Manjushri asked Buddha Shakyamuni, "One Gone Beyond, now you are the only object to whom sentient beings can make offerings. After you pass into the sorrowless state, what will sentient beings do? How will they accumulate merit when they cannot see the Buddha any more? Please advise us."

Lord Buddha answered, "My four followers, there is not one single difference between making offerings to me now and in the future, with devotion, making offerings to my reflections. The merit is equal and the result is equal."

The above passage clearly states that making offerings to a Buddha image is equivalent to making offerings to the real Buddha. Offerings create positive energy (merit) that helps us with our Dharma practice and developes good qualities such as generosity. Making offerings to the Enlightened Beings is the focal point from which we can develop inner fulfillment and happiness in our lives.

Phurba + phurba holder brass

The phurba is also known as the magic dagger. In Sanskrit the name is kilaya or kila, in Tibetan it is phurba or phurpa. Phur or kila means pin or nail. The phurba is a three-sided pin that is used for Buddhist rituals. Tibetans have since long been a nomadic people so the tent plays an important role in the lives of Tibetans. Putting tent pins in the ground is seen as an act of making the land the tent is on, sacred. The shape of the phurba can be deduced from the pin that holds the tent in place.

The three-sided style of the phurba has been used since long as a Vedic tool to pinpoint offerings. The phurba has three segments on the blade. The three segments represent the power of the phurba to transform negative energies. These energies are known as the three poisons: attachment, ignorance and hatred. The three sides of the blade also represent the three states of consciousness. The handle of the phurba represents wisdom, while the blade represents method.
When used in Tibetan rituals, the phurba is often put in a bowl with rice or other grains. Phurbas can be made of wood, bone or metals like copper or brass. When more than one type of metal is used, it will always be a combination of three or nine metals, numbers that have meaning in Buddhist culture.
