Myth Buster 7: Potpourri Makes for a Good Offering

Published March 16, 2012 by jptan2012

I’ve never really heard of Buddhist offering potpourri to their images, but a number of people has asked whether it’s okay to use a potpourri as an offering because it’s an offering of flowers and scent!

The truth a potpourri is considered as a very inauspicious offering. A potpourri is cut up dried flowers. Meaning its dead flower. Therefore, it’s high in Yin energy and is not suitable as an offering to your Buddhas or Bodhisattvas.

Furthermore, it’s actually not suitable to be placed in a room because it creates Yin energy that may be harmful to us. It might create bad luck for the people who occupy the room, or it might even steal the energy of a good Feng Shui.

I know they may seem nice but it’s best to avoid potpourris!
