Abhishek Patra is a utensil or vessel which comes in different sizes, shapes and designs. It is used to bathe the pious statues and deities of God or Goddess with different liquid ingredients. This ritual is known as Abhishekam and is considered very important in the Vedic culture because it is a type of devotional service, and any type of devotional service is very dear to the Lord.
This auspicious Abhishek Patra is made of copper from South India, the land of rich culture, tradition and art. It is uniquely shaped; the tray of the Patra is concave in shape and the base in convex shape. The tray is for the purpose of placing the idols on it for sprinkling holy water, milk, yogurt, honey, rose water, clarified butter (ghee) and fruit juices on them. This ceremony is carried out while reciting the specific hymns and chanting the holy names of the deity being worshiped.
It is designed in such a way that there is an outlet on the tray so that all the liquid ingredients can be poured out in another vessel in which they are mixed and then distributed among the devotees. This Patra is suitable for placing a small deity. Note the fine finishing and the smooth and lustrous surface of this Abhishek Patra.
