Vajrasattva Purification Retreat

May 2 – 7

This 5 day retreat will focus on the practice of Vajrasattva Purification. Vajrasattva is the Buddha we rely upon to purify our negative karma and free our mind from the causes of suffering.  The retreat will emphasize the four powers, (regret, reliance, opponent force and promise) and reciting the mantra of Vajrasattva.  The first session of each day will be led by Gen Kelsang Thekchen.

This is an in depth retreat, but everyone is welcome to any of the sessions.

You can learn about the practice of purification in our ‘Purifying Negativity’ Course on May 1. More info here
