In order to liberate ourselves from karma, kleshas and habitual patterns, to begin with we are required to generate or depend on the three different types of vows: the Pratimoksha Vows, the Bodhisattva Vows, and the tantric vows. Buddhas and Bodhisattvas have shown in the past over and over again, through various activities, that by utilizing these vows we can truly enhance our inherent qualities.
