What are karmic obstacles? How to overcome?
Understanding is karmic obstacles are ignorance, habits. For ignorance, the remedy would be making light offerings to clear the ignorance ie afflictive views, afflictive thoughts.
For habits, efforts are needed to change through constant study, reflection & put into practice what have been learnt. 如理作意
I have encounters with people who tells me that their karmic obstacles are strong but the recommendations will not work as long as efforts are not made to remedy it. Finally, i reached to a point is to lend a listening ear & supplicate that the persons can overcome the obstacles & see the light one day.
