How to Purify the Mind

The Magical Practice of Vajrasattva Purification

During the first three weeks of January, Kadam Lucy will be guiding a retreat on the practice of Vajrasattva. This practice has been used for centuries as a practice for purifying the mind of the negative karmic residue of our previous actions and experiences.

Through learning how to skillfully engage in this practice, and how to use Vajrasattva’s mantra as an instrument of purification we can heal our mind of all negativities, painful and hurtful tendencies, and indeed all traumas. This practice not only purifies our mind of our inner sources of unhappiness, it also removes obstacles to our making great progress on our spiritual path and liberates us to experience a joyful future.

In this half-day course, Kadam Morten will explain how to integrate this ancient and powerful practice with the strategy known as the four complete purities so that we can fully experience its benefits. This class will be of benefit to everyone, regardless of whether or not you are intending on participating in this retreat.

Everybody welcome!
