Purification

(tib.: sgrib yang) The removal and cleansing of negative karmas and imprints from the mind, which would otherwise ripen into suffering. The most effective methods of purification employ the four opponent powers of reliance, regret, resolution and the application of antidotes. More well known practices for purification are Vajrasattva mantras or prostrations to 35 Buddhas.

Words of Wisdom

"All things found in the world and beyond are illusions created by one's own thought. Grasping at them but further distorts perception. Give up grasping and see things as they are."
- 7th Dalai Lama
