They are so beautiful.
Ayush Basu: Indeed, Michael. And they are very common - I would imagine sold and purchased by the thousands.

If I was a deity I'd be impressed with these Ayush
Ayush Basu: A totally understandable reaction, Chris.

Très jolies bougies avec ce beau rose.
Ayush Basu: Precisely, Martine. I think they are lotus shaped.
They are rather fine Ayush
Ayush Basu: I imagine they are mass produced with consistent quality, Bill.

Oh...very attractive offerings!
Ayush Basu: All temples seemed to have identical lotus candles, Ray.
I would rather take one home and let the deities fend for themselves...
Ayush Basu: Not a bad idea actually, Larry. I think they would last for a looooong time.
lovely candles and i liked the way that you framed the row Ayush....petersmile
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the kind comment, Peter.
Are these as big as they look, Ayush, or more like votive candles in size, I wonder. So "pretty in pink."
Ayush Basu: Oh yes, I imagine they would burn for long after the devotees left, Ginnie.

I wonder if they are scented, too, Ayush?
Ayush Basu: I did not think so and good for that too, with scores of them being lit and offered, Lisl.

Ayush Basu: I think this brand of Buddhism does have idols to Buddha, so yes there are statues, Elaine.

These candles look delicious, The deities should be happy.
Ayush Basu: Lotus shaped, pink in colour and long lasting - well I would be happy, Louis.
I thought they were pumpkin-like!
Ayush Basu: In size not so much, but in form, almost there, Tom.

Ayush Basu: Thank you Emily, it seemed that they are sold in large numbers and all temples (and there are several temples in Penang!) have these for purchase.
They are very pretty candles.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Cheryl. I did like this candles very much.
