What it really means to make offerings?

Making offerings is a very important part of Buddhist practice. To make offerings is to practice giving, one of the six perfections. It benefits both ourselves and others in that through giving we are actually repaying the kindness of others and showing gratitude, as well as learning and growing spiritually. Also, by making offerings to the sangha we are contributing to spreading the Buddhadharma and helping others engage in spiritual practice, thereby gaining great merit.
