What makes the practice of offering to a holy object so special is due to the power of the object. Because of their great power even if one offers only a single grain of rice or a single flower to a statue, stupa or scripture, and even if the offering is made with a bad motivation, STILL one collects the merit that immediately becomes a cause of enlightenment. As an enlightened being we can then lead every single being of the six realms to enlightenment. Thus, the benefits of offering to holy objects is inexpressible. Right now we have this great opportunity and as this wish fulfilling rebirth can stop at any time we should rejoice at our good fortune and take full advantage so we can most quickly help others.
