In my opinion, and personally I dont really think it matters. Just as long as it is a clean respectful place then it should be fine. It is more important of what inside our heart/mind than the physical :].

Hi Jens,

This can vary in many practice cycles in the Nyingma. I am not sure what would be correct in a general way but I keep the protector offerings on the left side.

"To reject practice by saying, 'it is conceptual!' is the path of fools. A tendency of the inexperienced and something to be avoided."

"Even though you have recognized your essence, if you do not get accustomed to it,
You will be carried away by the enemy of thoughts, like a small child in a battle field.
So long as you are not free from the limitations of accepting and rejecting,
That long will you not recognize the view of the innermost secret heart-essence."
