Purification is the root of future happiness and spiritual realizations. In our previous lives, when under the influence of negative states of mind, we created a great deal of negative karma. As a result we have been experiencing their suffering results since beginningless time. Now as a human being we have the wonderful opportunity to cleanse our mind of negativity!

How much we purify depends upon the strength of applying the four opponent powers:

  1. The power of regret
  2. The power of reliance
  3. The power of the opponent force
  4. The power of promise

During the guided sessions of this retreat, Gen Kelsang Menla will guide us through applying the four opponent powers so that we can purify all the negative karma we have accumulated.


Gen Kelsang Menla is the Resident Teacher of KMC Texas and an American Buddhist Monk ordained for 16 years. He is an experienced teacher who brings joy and warmth to sharing Buddha's teachings and the practice of meditation. Learn more about Gen Menla on our About Us page.
