Why do Buddhas and Bodhisattvas come to this samsara world without encouraging us to pray for worldly blessings? Will it bring immense merit if we make offerings, build temples and print sutras? Supreme Master Ching Hai explains that immense merits are only immense in this world; nothing is immense from the Buddha's point of view, because sooner or later everything within the Three Worlds will be destroyed, let alone your immense merits. Buddhas and Bodhisattvas have all kinds of merits which are limitless to use or give away. By then, the merits that they possess seems like no merit at all. That's why we say the merit that seems like no merit is truly immense and boundless.
So we shouldn't try to hurriedly liberate sentient beings or elevate souls, or pass down our moral values to others. We should take care of our own power first, and then a single sentence benefit many people and just a single glimpse at people can comfort them. Wherever we are, that place will be cleansed by us and people there will receive blessings naturally without knowing why. This is selfless dharma transmission and selfless offering.
