Vajrasattva Purification Retreat

December 15, 2023 @ 9:00 am - December 17, 2023 @ 6:00 pm

R45.00 – R650.00

We dedicate most of our time and energy trying to avoid problems by making changes to the external world. However, the main cause of our unhappiness and difficulties cannot be found in external conditions. It is the negative karma we have created in the past through performing harmful actions. By relying upon Vajrasattva, the Buddha of purification we will cleanse our mind of delusions, negativity and obstacles. Through special meditation and mantra recitation we have the great opportunity to purify our mind quickly, so that we can make swift progress on the spiritual path.


This retreat on the purification practice of Vajrasattva will be done in conjunction with Meditation and Recitation of Solitary Vajrasattva and Hundreds of Deities of the Joyful Land according to Highest Yoga Tantra Sadhanas.  In this way, not only do we purify negativities but we also accumulate merit and receive blessings bringing together all necessary conditions for solving our human problems. How wonderful!
