Vajrasattva Preliminary Guide Retreat

Self Guided Retreat

October 8th - 10th @ KMC SF

“Through the power of recitation and visualization, and through receiving Vajrasattva’s blessings, we will gradually purify our mind and our actions. In this way we can improve our qualities as a human being, and eventually become a special holy being.” Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, Teachings on Vajrasattva, 1993.

This retreat is a powerful method for purifying our negative karma. Each session includes prayer and time for silent meditation. By deepening our reliance on Buddha Vajrasattva in this retreat, we will cleanse our mind of delusions, negativities, and obstacles holding us back from reaching our full inner potential.

What to expect in this retreat

  • The sadhanas, "Offering to the Spiritual Guide" & "Meditation & Recitation of Solitary Vajrasattva" will be used
  • Silences for personal practice are included in the playlist
