The teaching:

Mandala Offering is a ritual of offering which involves visualisation of the entire universe and mentally offering this to an object of refuge such as one’s guru, a meditational deity or the Three Jewels. Together with Taking Refuge; Vajrasattva Meditation; and the practice of Guruyoga; Mandala Offering is a prerequisite for a successful practice of Vajrayana (the path of the tantras).
