(If one desires to achieve buddha-bhāva/Buddha Nature, one must cultivate both virtue and wisdom and unify samādhi/mental concentration and wisdom. Therefore, prior to the core of practice, one shall execute offerings to extensively cultivate blessed rewards and merits.
Praise with Joss Sticks, Candles and Fresh Flowers as Offerings
I hope the joss sticks, candles and fresh flowers
will spread over the worlds in all directions
to offer all Buddha,
all beings who receive Buddhist teachings of others or are self-taught,
and all immortals
for conducting Buddhist services.
