Offering ceremonies and rituals form an important part of Buddhist practice as they are an opportunity to create merit, i.e. positive karmic causes that will ripen as spiritual and worldly success. There is a Tibetan saying that for every handful of successful studies, you need two handfuls of prayers. The recipients of the offerings, the Three Jewels, are a powerful field of merit because they represent the fully realised qualities of awakening. By respecting and honouring them, we begin to respect and nurture those qualities within ourselves.
