How to Purify Roots and Eggs?

Post by Tenma » Fri May 04, 2018 4:44 am

Okay, so I got done mantras for meat, but what about eggs, roots, garlic, onions, and so on? How does one purify those of their defilements before eating them?

I prefer to eat them with their defilements intact, they are much tastier and more nutritious that way.

What do you mean: "mantra for meat"?

Why do you suppose those items are defiled? Do you think they are inherently defiled?

Mantra for meat as in like "Aa Ah Ha Sha Sa Ma," "Om Abhira Kechara Hum," and so on to purify oneself of the defilements of eating it.

How doest thou purify thyself of these defilements for the sake of the practice? Must one do of the great purifier, Vajrasattva, or what?

Mantra of Liberation Upon Hearing is not for purifying defilements, it's for engendering liberation upon those who "hear".

Where do these defilements of yours exist?

The six syllable mantra purifies the root of all six realms. All karma that you want to purify is connected with the six realms. If you use that mantra, you can purify the six realms, not only for yourself but with any beings connected with the meat, eggs, garlic, etc. You purificate everything that way.

I just put my palms together and say either loud or silently inside my mind: "I give this food to Amitabha Buddha"

And then add: "Please forgive the garlic, chili, onions, meat, eggs, alcohol" etc..

Then i just eat and wonder what it is. Like Ryokan's why do we eat rice poem.

Just say grace.

Oh, nvm, sorry, this is a Buddhist forum, I forgot.

Just say ġrāce.
世尊在靈山會上拈華示眾眾皆默然唯迦葉破顏微笑世尊云
The Lord dwelt at the Vulture Peak with the assembly and plucked a flower as a teaching. The myriad totality were silent, save for Kāśyapa, whose face cracked in a faint smile. The Lord spoke.
吾有正法眼藏涅槃妙心實相無相微妙法門不立文字教外別傳付囑摩訶迦葉。
I have the treasure of the true dharma eye, I have nirvāṇa as wondrous citta, I know signless dharmatā, the subtle dharma-gate, which is not standing on written word, which is external to scriptures, which is a special dispensation, which is entrusted to Mahākāśyapa.

The point of the mantras for meat is not to purify yourself of the karma of eating the meat. It is to help the animal that was killed for the meat.
