Fruits (excerpt from Understading Buddhism, Venerable Master Chin Kung)

Great Strength Bodhisattva

Buddha Amitabha

Guan Yin Bodhisattva

Fruits are not offered to the Buddha or Bodhisattvas to eat. They remind us that if we want the sweet fruit or the good result, we must cultivate and accumulate good deeds, the cause. Thus, everything we see in the way place is a teaching aid. The Buddhas and Bodhisattvas neither smell nor eat, they want for nothing.
