Before going to the pagoda where I would receive my blessings, my guide took me to the local market to get an offering to take to the monks. Earning merit is an important part of Buddhist life and this can be done through good actions and by giving money, goods and help to the temples and the monks. The offering includes rice, tins of food, incense and other things which the monks then use or share with those in need.
