OM AH HUNG </The activities of body, speech & mind. Thus, body, speech & mind are the 3 Doors
Purification of body, speech and mind.
Body, speech & mind are the three doors by which we enter samsara or Nirvana. That is, it is through the defiled, unenlightened activities of body, speech and mind that we have accumulated the karma associated with samsara.
1. Purification of body: OM
Place your hands in whatever position is comfortable for you and close your eyes. Visualize a white OM at the center of your brain, a red AH at your throat and a blue HUM at your heart. These letters are made of radiant light. If you cant visualize these letters in Tibetan or Sanskrit, you can just visualize white, red & blue light. Concentrate on the white OM in your brain. Recognize that this white OM is the pure energy of the divine body of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. Make the sound OM and visualize that radiant white light emanates from the syllable, goes down your central psychic channel and fills your whole body with blissful, radiant white light energy. All conceptions and impure energy of body are cleansed and purified. It is important to visualize that your entire body, from head to toe, is completely full of blissful, radiant white light energy. Feel that. Continue making the sound OM for two or three minutes while you are meditating and purifying your body. When you stop making the sound, dont do or think anything. Remain perfectly still, fully aware, unconcerned with good or bad, not reacting, free of any internal conversation, with all your attention on the light consciousness at the center of your brain. Be there. Be intensely aware and let go, without sluggishness, without distraction, without expectation.
Intensive awareness leads to the experience of non-self or egolessness, emptiness. Comprehend this intense awareness and let go.
2. Purification of speech: AH
Concentrate on the red AH at your throat chakra, like the sun at sunset. Recognize that this red AH is the pure speech of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas.
Make the sound AH for two or three minutes and visualize that radiant red light emanates from the syllable, goes down your central psychic channel and fills your whole body with blissful, radiant red light energy. All conceptions and impure energy of speech are cleansed and purified.
Again, when you finish the recitation, just be, without any expectation or interpretation, in a state of intense awareness.
Understand your experience of the non-dual, of the non-self-existent I, of emptiness space as truth, as reality. This increases your energy for strong comprehension of reality. This experience is much more real than your waking, fantasy sense world.
3. Purification of mind: HUM
At your heart, stands a radiant blue HUM. Recognize that this blue HUM is the non-dual wisdom of all the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. Your heart is pure, cool and calm, luminous with the radiant light of HUM. Infinite blue light radiates from the HUM. All narrow thoughts disappear; all indecisive minds disappear; all obsessed minds disappear.
The radiant blue light from the HUM fills your whole body. Your whole body feels blissful. Filled with light, there is no room for dualistic concepts. At the same time, make the sound HUM for two or three minutes. Then feel infinite blue light. Let your consciousness, like space, embrace the entire universal reality. Your intensive awareness becomes inseparable from universal reality itself. Feel and be, without expectation or superstition.
Cultivate equilibrium and loving kindness for all others. Thus, mind becomes a resource for the development of loving kindness. When it arises, maintain that intense awareness of loving kindness in your consciousness. Then, your loving kindness will manifest in your central channel.
