In Liberation in the Palm of Your Hand Pabonka Rinpoche explains how the great Atisha would purify any negativity, no matter how small, immediately. Even in public or when riding his horse, as soon as he noticed a breach of his ethics, he would stop what he was doing, drop to one knee and then and there, purify it with the four opponent powers - the powers of dependence, regret, remedy and restraint. Atisha practiced purification in this way because of his deep realization of the psycho-mechanics of negative karma, especially its four fundamentals: negative karma is certain to bring suffering; it multiplies exponentially; if eradicated, it cannot bring its suffering result; and once created, it never simply disappears. Through the study and practice of Dharma, we should try to attain Atisha's level of understanding. In the meantime, we should try to practice as he did. Therefore, out of his great compassion, Lama Zopa Rinpoche has composed this short Vajrasattva practice and requested that it be published in a pocket-sized format that is easy for people to carry round and have available at all times. Thus, we can be like the great Atisha - whenever we notice we have broken a vow or created any other kind of negative karma, we can whip out our little Vajrasattva book and purify that negativity with the four opponent powers without a second's delay. This title was published by the Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive, a non-profit organization established to make the Buddhist teachings of Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche freely accessible in many ways.

For those of us who transgress and fret along the way, this little booklet provides a way for us to remind ourselves that purification is never more than a breath away! A wonderful manual to reference the prayer, strength, and positivity our souls crave. Namo Buddhaya
Within this short book the great lama zopa rinpoche lays out a comprehensive path to purify one's negative karma daily. I found this book to be extremely helpful in my path of being a good Buddhist and good human being in general. If you are interested in how to become a practicing Buddhist this is an excellent place to start. This book has some beneficial prayers that put the entire vision and goal of the Mahayana path on our lips and in our hearts.
A very practical exercise. Like most buddhist practices its a short simple practice which can bring a tremendous difference. If you understand the underlying principal, you could pretty much modify this for any path you choose.
short and sweet
The main practice primarily for on the spot daily use for 21 or 28 repetitions. Dedicated to the profound path of personal and worldwide liberation.
How wonderful a gift of Daily Purification is! We are on the Path but we recognize our weaknesses. We fail but we cannot give up! Get this books and visit the website - lamayeshe.com.
An excellent text, though some of the truths may be too refined for the general public.
