Daily Offerings at a Spirit House
I really enjoy browsing around on your website. I had a few questions. The first question is about the daily offerings to the spirits.
Do they keep adding to the offerings and clean all the offerings up after a week or do they remove the offerings from the previous day?
If they remove them, do they just throw them away or do they reuse the flowers, fruits, bottles of water, etc. for their own use in their houses or eat fruits or drink the bottles of water. I wouldn’t want to throw away good food/water.
Also, another question I have is regarding worshiping monks (pictures) and amulets. Do people worship monks and amulets with food and drinks too? What are common ways to worship pictures of monks and amulets?
Any help would be of great appreciation. I am starting to be more spiritual and would like to worship some monks, spirits, and amulets, along with Buddha.
