Field of Merit from the Longchen Nyingtik Ngöndro

The field of merit (Tib. tsok shying; Wyl. tshogs zhing) or, more literally, 'field of accumulation', is the focus, or object, before which we practise offering, prayer, prostrations, and so on, in order to accumulate merit and wisdom. The fact that our practice and positive actions are performed in the presence of, or directed towards, such powerful objects (Tib. yul nyenpo) enhances their effect.
