Sang offerings

Post by philji » Sat Sep 01, 2012 1:01 pm

During a sang offering, should the emphasis be on offering all that is wonderful and precious etc to the 4 guests or of offering our own negative emotions and defilements for purification?

The knowledge imparted through the guru’s instructions that formerly was unknown (avidyā) is vidyā.
