The Spirit of Losar
In the days before Losar (Tibetan New Year), people are kept busy cleaning. Of course, guests might be coming, but it is also a psychological relief to have a clean house.
If we might think that the annual event of Losar will be celebrated with a clean house, why not really celebrate the spirit of New Year with a more purified mind? The great mantra of the Buddha of Higher Purification, Vajrasattva, is Om Vajrasattva Hum. Try reciting it while sweeping, doing dishes or taking a shower. ~Domo Geshe Rinpoche ~~~
