“In the past, when the Thirty-five Buddhas were bodhisattvas, they made many prayers to be able to benefit sentient beings, to easily purify our defilements and negative karma. When they achieved enlightenment, they achieved the Buddha’s ten qualities or powers, one of which is the power of prayer. So, their names have the power of all those past prayers. That is why, when sentient beings recite their names, they have so much power to purify defilements and eons of negative karma.” –Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche
In this course Geshe Sherab will take us through the “Confession of a Bodhisattvas Downfalls to the 35 Buddhas” practice, explaining the meaning of each of the important steps as well as how to make the process powerful by generating the four opponent powers of regret, reliance, remediation, and resolve. Through this course we will come to understand how to use this practice effectively to purify the karmic seeds left in the mind by past harmful actions so that their ripening can be prevented or reduced.
