The Greatest Purification

Rinpoche gave this advice to a student who was doing many, many nyung-näs.

My most dear wish-fulfilling one,
I hope you are well. I am very, very, very happy with what you are doing. All the nyung-näs are for you and all sentient beings to purify negative karma and defilements, and as a quick way to collect merit and achieve enlightenment.

I am not sure if you remember the story about the girl who killed fifteen or more people. Then she did nyung-nä but she got hungry and ate the torma, so in the next life she had an unstable mind and was born in a lower caste. However, in the following life she was born in Amitabha’s pure land.

Can you imagine the benefit of doing nyung-näs? Wow, wow! It has the greatest benefit. It is the greatest purification and the greatest way to collect merit for all sentient beings—the numberless hell beings, hungry ghosts, animals, human beings, suras, asuras and intermediate state beings.

Even death happens. Can you imagine? Nyung-näs make the happiest death and your future life is like the sun shining. Wow, wow, wow! Continue, continue with compassion, wisdom and bodhicitta!

Do you need any help?

With much love and prayers...
