Buddhist Repentance (Metanoia)


This is a ritual performed by certain Buddhist monks in times of full moon and luanova.
The term “metanoia” comes from the Greek and is composed of “meta” which means “after” or “with”, and “nous”, which means “intellect” or “mind.” Thus together and in literal translation, metanoia means change of mentality or purpose. The term metanoia also appears in the Bible, with the translation of “repent.”

Repeat three times (on full and / or new moon nights):
“All the harmful karma, ever committed by me, since time immemorial, due to my gain, anger and ignorance without limits, born of my body, mouth and mind – Now I regret everything!”

If repentance is genuine, you will experience lightness of being (less worries or anxiety), change in harmful behaviors, self sabotage, still bringing about a radical transformation of thought, attitude, and direction in life.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
