Auspicious Occasion: Light offering at the great Stupa of Boudhanath in Kathmandu. Each of the little withered Buddha statues in their acloves at the base of the great cupola (way up on the top pedestal) receives a candle which is then lit. All the while making aspirations following the ancient light offering texts. The stupa is of course round, so the number of offerings depends utterly on how many times you circumambulate. And your imagination, of course, an offering like this being mainly a mind thing, anyway. A memorable (maybe once in a lifetime) and wonderful event and practice.
