We create negativity with our mind, so we can purify it by creating positivity with our mind. — LAMA YESHE
Every hardship, pain, and suffering we encounter is due to our karma and delusions. Purify your mind of these obstacles and create a path for happiness by harnessing the four opponent powers and Vajrasattva.
