All our best wishes originate from a pure mind, and tablets are the manifestations of such a pure mind. Setting up blessing and memorial tablets is a way to show our gratitude and offer best wishes to our family, relatives, friends, other sentient beings, and even ourselves. We dedicate the merits to those on the tablets by making offering to the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha – to both the living and the deceased. We wish them to be free from sufferings and achieve ultimate bliss.
Furthermore, we chant the sutra concentrating our mind. With pure mind, speech and body while chanting, we generate merits. We dedicate these merits toward world peace, our family, relatives and all sentient beings, so that all may eradicate all their afflictions, be free from calamities, and attain enlightenment.
