Karma is Sanskrit for “action.” According to the Tibetan Bön and Buddhist traditions, any action you do with intent is said to leave a trace, whether positive or negative, in your mind-stream. That trace will bear fruit as soon as conditions are ripe for it to manifest. By purifying negative karma, you are less bounded by conditions and can more easily overcome harmful patterns of thought or behavior.
During this webcast, Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche will explain and guide a meditation that combines visualization with recitation of the powerful purification mantra A Kar A Me, one of the three Great Mantras of Bön. Additional guided meditations will be led by a senior student. These practices, from the Experiential Transmission of Zhang Zhung, are traditionally done to prepare oneself as a container of higher spiritual knowledge and as a vehicle for profound transformation
