The skullcup (Sanskrit: kapal) has been indispensable in the rites of the Orient since time immemorial. Its use traces its origins in Hinduism, having evolved to hold great spiritual and aesthetic significance in present-day Buddhist practices. Carved out of the real human calveria, skullcups have been traditionally decked with gold and inlaid with precious stones in order to be used as a ritual implement.

Numberless Hindu deities are depicted with a skullcap in one of their numerous hands, often overflowing with the remains of the adharmee (enemy of dharm). Whose skull the cap has been fashioned out of does not matter from the Buddhist point of view, because death divests one's soul of all sorts of attachment, including attachment to the body.
