    The Power to Purify | The Practice of the Three Superior Heaps

    Friday Night Talk with Gen Kelsang Demo

    Does it feel like no matter how hard you try you can’t develop a calm and peaceful mind? Under the influence of deluded minds we have created a great deal of negative karma, as a result we now experience many difficulties and suffering. No matter how negative our mind is, there is a way to find peace. We have the opportunity to purify our mind completely and develop a calm and peaceful mind by engaging in this ancient purification practice.

    One of the most powerful purification practices is the Mahayana Sutra of the Three Superior Heaps, also known as The Bodhisattva’s Confession of Moral Downfalls. In this practice, we visualize the Thirty-five Confession Buddhas and practice purification in their presence. Through the power of their blessings and prayers, we can swiftly purify even the heaviest negative actions simply by faithfully reciting their names.

    In this special talk, Gen Kelsang Demo will give an introduction to purifying negative karma. This Friday Night Talk will also serve as an introduction to a Saturday workshop with Gen Kelsang Demo Saturday, April 23. In this special two-day event you’ll learn the meaning and powerful purifying ability of the 35 Confession Buddha practice and begin to develop the calm and peaceful mind you’ve been searching for.
