Butter Lamp Offerings Mar Me (Butter Fire)
Offering a butter lamp or many butter lamps (sometimes 100,000 are offered) is deeply ingrained in the Tibetan tradition. Perhaps the easiest way to explain it is as a way to think quite simply they ‘make light.’ Lamps can be offered when starting a new venture, to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or graduation, to say thank you, to pray, to make an offering to a temple or statue or when someone you know or yourself is in trouble.
Offer butter lamps whenever you feel there is a need for more light in one way or another. In Tibet, butter was what was used to make light quite literally and it was an expression of richness in a culture with sparse resources and very limited agricultural production.
