The Four Opponent Powers

4 opponent powers (Vajrayana)

(tib.: tob shi) Four opponent powers are a method how to purify our negative karma which we have accumulated when acted in a negative way:

  • 1. (tib.: nam par sun jin pe tob) the power of regret of a negative activity;

  • 2. (tib.: ten gyi tob) the power of refuge – re-establishing of the right attitude;

  • 3. (tib.: nye pa le lar dok pe tob) the power of resolution – decision not to repeat the negative action again;

  • 4. (tib.: nyen po kun tu chu pe tob) the power of remedy – applying the antidotes, such as recitation of Sutras or Mantras, meditation on Emptiness, practice of Confession to the 35 Buddhas with prostrations.
