Please accept my humble obeisances.
All glories to Srila Prabhupada
When worshipping the Spiritual Master or the Deity of the Lord with 16 items, we offer Them Arghya, Acamana and Madhuparka. I understand from various descriptions what these items technically are:
Arghya - water with auspicious ingredients sprinkled on the person's head;
Acamana - water for sipping;
Madhuparka - an auspicious mixture of yogurt and honey that a person sprinkles in various directions.
But I have never seen a reception of a living person with these items, so I find it really hard to meditate on offering them to the Spiritual Master or Lord during Manasa-puja.
Like the Padya or footwash means we seat the person on a nice seat and wash their feet, but how does offering Arghya, Acamana and Madhuparka look like?
Can somebody who has seen such Vedic ceremony of reception (perhaps worshipped their Spiritual Master on Vyas Puja) please explain some detail? Or maybe somebody even has a photo or video?...
Thank you dear Vaishnavas for your help.
Your humble servant,
