“The Tathagatha… is the originator of the path unarisen before, the producer of the path unproduced before, the declarer of the path undeclared before. He is the knower of the path, the discoverer of the path, the one skilled in the path. And his disciplines now dwell following that path and become possessed of it afterwards.”
~ The Buddha
SN 22:58

Buddha Puja

Right before the meal, a small amount of each dish is put on a tray and offered up to the Buddha image.  In this photo you can see in the background someone walking the tray past all of the lay people.  Everyone touches the tray so they can be a part of the offering.  Although we know that the Buddha cannot receive our offering, we make it out of respect and generosity for the great gift he gave us: the teaching of the Dhamma.
