Hi befriend,

Possibly:

Buddha-pūjā (but that is usually meant for bowing and other rituals, offering incense, chanting) or

Buddha-vandana

Dear all,

Can anyone explain this Pali sentence to me?
Thanks in advance!

kumbhatthenakehi (Source word from Kula Sutta SN8. 1. 3.)

From the Pali dictionary, I only manage to found [kumbha] as a water pot. The the rest I could not understand.
