Det som kallas för ritualer Ă€r i sjĂ€lva verket olika metoder i den buddhistiska utövningen för att samla meriter och rena negativ karma. NĂ€r vi inte har en ordentlig förstĂ„else för betydelsen av dessa metoder kan det tyckas att det bara handlar om att be traditionella böner och ge komplicerade offergĂ„vor. Men med korrekt förstĂ„else och motivation blir dessa metoder ett sĂ€tta att ackumulera meriter och rena negativ karma. Utan ett bra ”lager” av meriter och rening sĂ€gs det att man inte kan fĂ„ nĂ„gra hĂ„llbara insikter i sin meditation.

Som förberedelse inför meditation med mÄl att nÄ högre insikter presenterade Buddha metoder för att samla meriter och rena negativ karma, som Àr kÀnda som Seven Limb Practices. Denna kurs kommer att tÀcka betydelsen av och syftet med dessa metoder och hur man implementerar dem i sitt dagliga liv.

——————ENGLISH——————

What is referred to as rituals are actually different methods of engaging in Buddhist practices as a means to accumulate merit and purify negative karmas. When we don’t have a proper understanding of the significance of these practices, it may appear as merely following a tradition of saying prayers and making elaborate offerings. However, with a proper understanding and intention, these practices become a most supreme method for accumulation of merit and purifying negative karmas. Without a good stock of merit and purification, it is said that one will not be able to gain any sustainable realizations from meditation.

As a preparation for engaging in meditational practices to gain higher realizations, the Buddha presented practices for accumulating merit and purifying negative karmas, which are known as the Seven Limb Practices. This course will cover the significance and purpose of these practices and how to implement them in one’s daily life.
