In the generation stages, the sections of each meditation and visualisation (e.g. the deity's ritual implement, the bija, and so on) hinders the practitioner from being born in any of the 6 lokas.

In the completion stages, the practitioner meditates on the channels and winds, which is then directed to steer away from being geared towads any of the 6 lokas.

Of course, with us being the way we are now, this may not be possible. That's why practicing the 2 accumulations is so very important. It guides us to the precious human birth.

That being said, your tsawai would be able to explain to you more than I am allowed to on this forum.

Karmic traces from previous past beings on other worlds, after the destruction of their universe, once the universal winds stir the water and fire elements, etc, create the next world system. Vows and pledges, aspirations, intentions can be considered karmic in nature.

Just a tidbit for the long, long view!

For extra information you can read Gyatrul Rinpoche's commentary on the generation stages. However this book should be read only by those who have received a major HYT or its equivalent.
