… we can recite the following short text to enliven our Dharma understanding and use the power of non-duality set out in the Heart Sutra to repel the dualistic delusions of the aggressor. When we say Dok! Dok! Dok! we clap our hands at each Dok! and imagine that all the negative force of the oppressors is returned to them. Dok! is a Tibetan word that indicates sending something back to where it came from. This is not revenge. It is simply returning a gift that we do not want and did not ask for. We are saying, “This is yours, please keep it!”
