Vajrasattva purification sadhana is an extremely powerful practice. In The Union of the Secret Minds Tantra, it is said, “As for the six-syllable mantra of the Noble Vajrasattva who is the union of the Buddhas of three times, those who hear the name of the mantra is evidence that they have performed wholesome deeds in front of various Buddhas, and they are bound to be born in the realm of Vajrasattva. They will receive blessings from Buddhas, and gain understanding of the Mahayana doctrine, possess extraordinary abilities, including the sight of perfect wisdom, and they will become the son of Buddha.” Therefore, having encountered such a pure practice, we should commit ourselves in this annual practice to maintain the purity of our mind-stream.

The sadhana used for this retreat is based on the terma revealed by H. H. Jigme Phuntsok Rinpoche called A wish-fulfilling pith instruction relying on the glorious Vajrasattva. It is the best sadhana to practice for purifying negativities and obscurations that will benefit both oneself and others. The merits accumulated and the effects of purification through practicing Vajrasattva during this miraculous month of Buddha's birth, enlightenment, and his passing into parinirvana are multiplied 10 millions folds. The benefits are hence inconceivable!

It is a great opportunity to make vast contributions towards the tsog, water, candles and flower offerings in this miraculous month during the Vajrasattva retreat where your merits get multiplied millions fold. Especially to those who prepare to receive the Bodhisattva vows, making vast offerings in this meaningful occasion will render inconceivable merits! We welcome you to make contributions towards the types of offerings you desire in order to amass as much merits as possible. To do so please click HERE and select the offering types.

Guru Rinpoche Practice to Avert Future Calamities
Led by Lama Drimed Rinpoche

California Time:6/5, 12, 19, 26 Sundays 7 pm ~9 pm PDT

Asian Time: 6/6, 13, 20, 27 Mondays 10 am to 12 pm

In efforts to avert future calamities as Guru Rinpoche had predicted, we will continue to practice this important terma called Guru Rinpoche Prayer for the Spontaneous Fulfillment of Wishes. This prayer was revealed by terton Rigdzin Jigmed Nudon Dorje about 500 years ago. Many tertons and masters have foretold the immense power and blessings this prayer could bring in pacifying and averting any major catastrophes. Guru Rinpoche also said that he will bless and protect those who pray to him wholeheartedly. Therefore, with the fervent faith towards Guru Rinpoche’s responsiveness to our sincere prayer, please join us to pray for the welfare of all future generations.
