Term Definition

(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.
