Ever feel like making merit on the spur of the moment? The Sanghadana ritual is one of the most satisfying ways of doing it and can be done practically at any time, at any temple.
The Sanghadana is a method of making merit that need not be scheduled. A person can simply go to a temple and ask if there is a monk who can perform a Sanghadana ritual in exchange for offerings of useful goods. Although Sanghadana goods are available in most supermarkets, packed in a shrink-wrapped saffron-coloured pail, packing your own offering is always better. It is not necessary to buy a saffron-coloured pail. Sanghadana offerings can be placed in any type of container, including a box or they can even be wrapped in a cloth.
