Solution: Purification through Vajrasattva meditation
Obstacle to experiences and realisations on the path. Prevent someone from good rebirths (gods and human realms)
Because of negative actions:
example: cutting grass for a monk
it's more harmful for a bodisattva to break a pratimocha vow than for a pratimocha because doing that, s.he break also a bodisattva vow.
example: kill an insect for a bodisattva is similar to killing one's mother. Bit there is no immediate retribution though.
These are thoughts that inspire negative actions (3 poisons)
Obstable to the realisation of Shravakas and Pratyekabudhas.
When you think that subject, object and activity are real.
♂ — white aspect → give birth to gross body ♀ — red aspect → give birth to gross speech ⚥ — energy → give birth to mind
Obscuration of wisdom of omniscience
