Ive read others here saying they chant the verse of atonement, so I looked it up on treeleaf.
All evil karma ever created by me since of Old
On account of beginning-less greed, anger and ignorance
Born of my body, mouth and mind
Now I atone for them all.
The last line resonates with me. So I’ve added that to my little ritual before I sit. I also found the four vows.
This is giving me problems, because it makes no sense to me. It contradicts all the Buddha’s teachings. Maybe someone could explain it to me. It’s perplexing me.
