Meditations and Prayers for World Peace
CHANGING OUR LUCK & PURIFYING OUR MIND
Even with great effort, meditation alone is not sufficient to attain spiritual realizations. We also need to engage in practices for accumulating merit and purifying negativities to create the right conditions for our meditations to succeed. Doing so greatly increases our happiness and power to help others.
August 20: Purifying Negativity from Within:
When we experience suffering, we should consider the cause, non-virtuous actions, and apply the remedy, purification. Rather than being preoccupied with the suffering itself, we should apply the solution.
