Today cities have great environmental greening, the streets are decorated with colourful flowers. Instead of picking the flowers, we can accumulate great merit by visualising offering flowers to buddhas and chanting mantras. Why don’t you do it? Actually, you can offer anything beautiful you see to Buddhas. Thus, accumulating merit is fairly easy by adopting the skilful means of chanting mantras.
