Purification Practice

A Simple Method for “Cleaning up our Act!”

Kadam Morten Clausen, Resident Teacher at KMC-NYC, Eastern US National Spiritual Director for the New Kadampa Tradition

Like it or not, we need to know that we carry on our own mind the potentials for the sufferings we experience. The good news here is that methods exist for upending these potentials. In this series we will take a look at Buddha’s teachings on karma, and learn the special method of purification through which we can free ourselves from those negative karmic potentials that give rise to our unhappiness. Because the actual nature of our mind is by pure, we can definitely free ourselves from suffering.

This course will be an excellent preparation for the Labor Day Weekend Course where Kadam Morten will grant the empowerment of Buddha Vajrasattva, the Purification Buddha.
