Vajrasattva Retreat | 9 – 11 December

About the Retreat

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.

There will be three sessions a day and the practice is accomplished within the sadhana Offering to the Spiritual Guide. Gen Tubpa will provide a clear introduction to the practice on Friday evening, and further guidance will be offered in each session.
