The Repelling Practices
Three repelling practices or ‘hand-clapping’ practices commonly recited in the Sakya and other traditions. These three include ‘The Repelling Practice of Prajñāpāramitā’, ‘The Repelling Practice of Sitātapatrā’, and brief and extensive versions of ‘The Repelling Practice of Siṃhamukhā’. In brief: through the practice of Prajñāpāramitā all opposing factors towards the practice of Dharma and in general all obsctacles created by maras are dispelled or averted. Sitātapatrā assists practitioners to avert or repel all forms of obstacles, omens, misfortunes, and diseases; Siṃhamukhā assists practitioners to overcome and eliminate obstacles, hindrances, and dangers associated with various calamities, supernatural threats from humans and non-humans alike, and other various dangers.
