Offering hada: a kind of courtesy of the Tibetan people

The hada is a kind of courtesy of the Tibetan people. In Tibet, during weddings and festivals, greeting, meeting with elders, an audience with the Buddha, saying farewell, offering Hatha is the most common habit. Hada means purity, sincerity, loyalty and respect.

Tibetans believe that white symbolizes purity, luck, thus hada is generally white. In addition, there are five-color hadas including blue, white, yellow, green and red. Blue represents sky, white signifies clouds, green for river water, the red for God of space and yellow symbolizes the earth. Colorful hada is dedicated to the Buddha, is the most precious gift. Buddhist teachings explain that multicolored clothing hada is the wearing of Buddha. So colorful hada is only used in certain circumstances.
