Update - In the event of extended Covid restrictions in Melbourne, this event will go ahead online via Zoom.
Vajrasattva meditation and recitation is to purify all obscurations, defilements, negative karma and downfalls caused by ten non-virtuous actions and breaking of vows.
This is achieved by generating four powers: reliance, regret, antidotes and resolution, as strongly as possible.
Most of our actions are based on non-virtuous motivation, therefore most of our actions generate negative karma that leads to suffering. We therefore need Vajrasattva practice to purify such negative karma.
In the retreat Lama Tendar teaches what is negative karma and how to apply four powers to purify them. Most importantly, Lama Tendar teaches how to generate the mind of great compassion and Bodhichita as strong antidotes. This is a great opportunity to generate a pure mind for the benefits of yourself and others.
