Many visitors choose to show respect and appreciating to the monks for sharing their sacred places with them. Offerings include food, incense, candles or oil and will help the visitors gain more merit or karma as well as have a chance to reflect on their experiences. It is important to realize that in Buddhism the head is holy and never touched while the feet are seen as the furthest from sacred and should never be pointed at monks as a sign of respect.
