Creating a Pure World | Vajrasattva Empowerment

December 16 @ 9:00 am - December 17 @ 8:30 pm

“Buddha taught many different methods to purify non-virtuous actions, downfalls and broken commitments, but the supreme method is the practice of meditation and recitation of Vajrasattva. This practice is a scientific method to purify our mind and transform it from an impure mind into a pure mind using Tantric technology.”


– Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra


The empowerment is a blissful guided meditation in which we will receive the special blessings of Buddha Vajrasattva, the Buddha of purification, upon our body, speech and mind.  Through this we make a special connection with this enlightened being, enabling us to purify our body, speech and mind simply through receiving his blessings.


During the teachings on this simple but effective practice, Gen Jampel will illuminate the purification practice of Buddha Vajrasattva following the sadhana Meditation and Recitation of Solitary Vajrasattva. This skilful and creative practice allows us to connect with the natural potential of our mind, to heal our past, and purify old, painful habits of thinking and behaving. Through purifying our mind gradually we experience a purer world.
