You can offer Lamps here

“By offering these tranquil and beautiful lamps in the presence of the perfect Buddha, the King of Illumination, the Gyalwang Karmapa, the Lord of the World, and all the Buddhas with their children, may the poison of malicious enmity never arise in the mind of anyone of us. With loving minds, like the meeting of mother and child, may all the world be filled with peace and happiness.”
