heart wrote:I been taught that a simple altar is a representation of body, speech and mind and then it is complete. So a statue, a text and a crystal or a stupa. If you have no space you can just light a candle and some incense.
That sounds good. . . in theory..but then what would I do with all my rupas and tormas, etc. ? I would feel strange having them off in storage collecting dust when they could be there on the altar included as supports for the daily offerings, etc.
