If good, one is able to even match all 10 kinds of merits with one strike, Magga and Phala, and in all cases, base for good reflections on good deeds.
(Of course, all encouragements to dedicate likewise here, but not sure if welcome)
And to share another ones merits as encouragement, right as intro, as one thing is consuming, another, and lighting, the "doing of deeds bringing long joy", merits.

Dissension, strife and disharmony rule our lives. It is time to seek meaningful solace in qualities that elevate our mind, in order to overcome these seemingly insurmountable hurdles.
Naturally, we turn to The Enlightened One (The Buddha) for succour, for He cultivated such qualities that elevated His mind to the highest happiness and perfect Enlightenment, namely, the qualities of merit (puñña).
He preached that merit-making is a formidable antidote to overcome the many vicissitudes faced in our day-to-day lives. Hence He declared: ‘Do not fear merit-making. “Merit-making” is a term denoting happiness, what is desirable, pleasant, dear and charming. For I recall in my mind very well that after making merit for a long time, I experienced desirable, pleasant, dear and charming results for a long time. Let therefore a man train himself in merit-making that yields long-lasting happiness. Let him cultivate the practice of giving, virtuous conduct and a mind of mettā. By cultivating these qualities the wise man arrives in untroubled and happy states.’(1) And He exhorted: ‘Think not lightly of merit, saying, ʽʽIt will not come to me.ʼʼ Just as by the falling of water drops is a water-pot filled, even so, accumulating little by little, is a wise man filled with merit.’(2)
Being aware of the modern craze in society for the accumulation of material riches, we also decided to include what The Buddha identified as real riches.
We hope by reading this booklet you will be inspired to make more merit and accumulate real riches, both of which would be of advantage to you in this world and in the next.
We are most grateful to Ven. Ñāṇadassana of Nissaraṇa Vanaya, Meetirigala, for having made innumerable corrections in the original work and guided us in compiling this despite his onerous duties.
May all beings be well and happy.
