…LED BY DRUPON TSERING RINPOCHE WITH KHENMO TSECHIK AND LOPÖN ANI GAMTSO

  • 28 June 2024, 7PM – 9PM EDT:  Vajrasattva Empowerment

  • 29 – 30 June 2024, 10AM – 4PM EDT:  Vajrasattva Teachings and Practices with Mantra Recitation & Meditation


  • Vajrasattva practice is the most powerful method of healing and cleansing that purifies the negative karma and removes obstacles.

  • Vajrasattva practice is one of the core foundation for Vajrayana practitioners at all levels and is also part of the Ngondro practices in Tibetan Buddhism.

  • The main obstacles that prevent all the extraordinary experiences and realizations of the profound path from arising are negative actions, obscurations, and habitual tendencies. Just as it is important to clean the surface of a mirror if forms are to be reflected in it, so too it is important to eliminate our obscurations so that realization can appear like a reflection in the mirror of the Ground of All. The Buddha taught countless methods of purification for this purpose, but the best of them all is meditation and recitation related to the teacher as Vajrasattva.   ~ Patrul Rinpoche (1808-87)
