Buddha Bowl

The Buddha Bowl is another name for a Hope Vessel or a Blessing Bowl, and for me it conjures up images of primitive pottery and manifestation rituals based on Buddhist and Zen traditions. To help manifest certain dreams and hopes the believer puts these wishes into writing, and places the papers into the bowl on a regular basis as confirmation of intention and commitment to the goal. Practices like the one I have mentioned help us to open our minds and hearts in order to attract more of what we want in our lives. Abundance need not be elusive, and many are of the mind that we just need to step out of our own way to receive...... namaste friends.
