Introduction To The Skull Cup :

Kapala is a cup made of a human skull, frequently offered by worshipers of the fierce Tantric deities of Hindus and Buddhists. In Tibet, the skull cup is displayed on the Buddhist altar and is used to offer to the ferocious Dharmapala divinities either wine, which symbolizes blood, or dough cakes, which are shaped to resemble human eyes, and ears, etc. It offers liberation to gods and deities to ensure their devotion. In Tibetan Buddhism, the Kapala or Skull Bowl is used ritually in several ways.
