Purification

(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.

"When I talk of being detached, what I mean is to be simpler, more easy-going. Detachment doesn't mean totally renouncing everything. It means that you loosen your grip and be more relaxed."
- Lama Yeshe
