Offering: A glimpse into the diverse tapestry of cultures and traditions around the world. From Shirley Temple's birthday celebrations to Thangka paintings depicting acts of kindness like Sujata offering milk rice to Buddha in Nepal, we witness the beauty of selflessness. Even police recruitment signs symbolize an offer to protect and serve our communities. History unveils King Akhenaten and Queen Nefertiti making sacrifices for their beliefs, while British Square in Pollilur reminds us of brave soldiers who offered their lives for freedom. Giant incense sticks at the Chinese moon festival represent offerings of gratitude and prayers, while Shiva Mandir temple in Bengaluru offers solace to devotees seeking spiritual enlightenment. The golden Buddha statue at Bai Dinh radiates serenity, inviting all to find inner peace. Flags adorning ships from great steamship companies signify an offer of exploration and connection across oceans. In Beijing's Tanzhe Temple, a Buddha statue nestled within a grotto stands as an eternal offering of wisdom and tranquility. Garlands lovingly placed on statues honor Hindu God Ganesh with devotion and reverence. Lastly, Baynards Castle witnessed history unfold as Richard, Duke of Gloucester was offered kingship—an invitation that would shape England's destiny forever.
