Vajrasattva Purification Retreat

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.

There will be an introduction to the retreat on Saturday evening, 7-8pm.

The event will be live-streamed.  Click here for the live stream

You can learn about the practice at the Detox the Mind half day course


Only the first session will be guided.  Gen Kelsang Thekchen, senior Buddhist Monk and Resident Teacher of Bodhisattva KMC.


Retreat begins after the Detox the Mind half day course on Saturday evening.
