Prostration is the antidote to pride


When we put our hands to our head, we sweep away all the negative actions and obscuration associated with the body, and we receive the blessings of the enlightened body.

When we put our hands to our throat, we sweep away all the negative actions and obscuration associated with the speech, and we receive the blessings of enlightened speech.

When we put our hands to our heart, we sweep away negative actions and obscuration of the mind, and we receive the blessings of enlightened mind.

When we touch the ground with the five points of our body we purify the five poisons, and we receive the blessings of the five kayas and the five wisdoms.
