Also jukubukku n•§‹Ÿ, butsuhan •§”Ñ or butsushou •§éM. Cooked rice made as an offering to the Buddha, or very occasionally washed, uncooked rice. The cooked rice is placed in a special offering dish and is formed into various shapes. For example, the rice is formed in either a cylindrical shape, tsukibukku “Ë•§‹Ÿ, or in a cone shape, tsukunebukku s•§‹Ÿ or sugimori ™·. The number of dishes for rice offering varies from eight to sixteen depending on the school of esoteric Buddhism. At least two dishes are always placed on the altar, mitsudan –§’d, or dais in a temple of an Esoteric Buddhist sect, mikkyou –§‹³. Colored rice is offered on special occasions: red rice made with red bean liquid, yellow rice colored with gardenia, green rice from green leaf liquid, and black rice made with black sesame seeds. Sometimes rice cakes made with glutenous sweet rice have sweet rice powder sprinkled over them. Generally, nothing can be offered after noon, but late at night rice gruel can be offered. At an important ceremony like kanjou ŠÁ’¸, there is no time restriction placed upon the rice offerings. Aside from rice, offerings of flowers, incense, and candles are also called bukku.
