“I do not perceive even one other thing, O monks, that when developed and cultivated entails such great happiness as the mind. The mind when developed and cultivated entails great happiness.”

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.
