The Tantras say that leaking Bodhicitta causes loss of Bodhicitta and is like killing a Buddha.

Now that I'm celibate I fully understand from personal experience when the Tantras mean.

So then how is mudra practice done without leaking? I know it can be done as early as the creation stage, and I have a general idea how to do it but there is a lot I don't know.

Obviously I won't be doing these practices but I want to learn now.

Thank you.

"All memories and thoughts are the union of emptiness and knowing, the Mind.
Without attachment, self-liberating, like a snake in a knot.
Through the qualities of meditating in that way,
Mental obscurations are purified and the dharmakaya is attained."
