An important purification practice

Nov 10, 2015 | Views: 2,881

Dear friends,

All results come from karma. All karma comes from our actions. All actions come from our mind. Our mind’s creations arise from projections and deep seeded ignorance. The good news is all karma can be purified, therefore we can purify our actions and our mind also. When we leave karma as it is, then karma will effortlessly bring it’s results to us. One of the ways that karma can affect us is for us to have negative mind, angry mind and to see everything wrongly. When we are angry and have wrong view, then everything that comes out of us will be harmful which collects more negative karma. Karma brings us illness, misfortune, tragedies, pain, death, separation, rebirths, ill births, anguish and so on. There is no end how creative karma can be to make sure we suffer for as along as we let it. Samsara’s basis is karma from ignorance. Karma’s trick is to put us in a situation that is seemingly pleasurable but in reality it only brings pain in the long run. Karma’s method is deception. One of the powerful counters of karma and it’s effects is purification practice. The highest purification practice is the meditation on emptiness but for all us, that is pretty impossible at this stage. We instead can engage in prostrations, 35 Confessional Buddha sutra, taking and holding vows, refraining from harm and Vajrasattva practice. When we engage in purification practices, all the internal toxins will come out. All the karmas that will bring pain will be purified. When these karmas come out for a short time we may experience physical pain, disturbing dreams and much distorted mental anguish or fears. But it’s important to not stop and must continue. It’s like going for medical treatment for a serious illness. At first it is very painful and creates so much anxiety that we almost want to quit but in the end we are healed if we persevere. We must not quit. Quitting brings us nothing but false comfort zones. Same goes for purification practices, we have to go through much anguish and pain at times but the ‘toxins’ will come out. The more we engage in purification practices like Vajrasattva, we can see diseases heal, our minds become calm, we find peace, we find hope and our mental anguishes lessen for sure. Our various problems start to clear. Dharma knowledge starts to saturate our minds deeper and easier. Attachments don’t afflict us as much and so on. Why? Because the karma fueling them is being purified.

If we engage in the higher tantric practices (Maha-Annutara-tantras), then engaging in Vajrasattva practice is a total necessity as a prerequisite. Without this practice, then higher attainments within the tantras would be difficult. It would be good to engage in a minimum 100,000 each of Vajrasattva, prostrations, mandala offerings, guru yoga, refuge formula. You can also include 100,000 of water bowl offerings, butterlamps or light offerings and making of Buddha images like tsatsas if you like as extra. It is very important to engage in these preliminary practices prior to tantra or simultaneous with tantric practices. Tantric practice will bear results if our minds are ready to go all the way. One of the ways to prepare our mind is through purification practices that has been successfully completed by great practitioners of the past.

I am very happy to present to you the practice of Vajrasattva here. I wish you all very well.

Vajrasattva: Primordial Purity

 

Dissolving Negative Emotions, Habitual Behaviors and Karma

Vajrasattva is the ultimate embodiment of the aspects of all the Buddhas and is representative of the Diamond-like primordial Purity of the Buddha Nature within each individual. Vajrasattva is also representative of the 100 Peaceful and Wrathful Deities embodied in each sentient being and also represents the Union of Compassion and Skillful Means. ‘Sattva’ translates as ‘spiritual hero’ or ‘heroine’ and ‘Vajra’ translates as diamond thunderbolt (unbreakable and pure energy).

Vajrasattva is the ideal of the perfected being: without negative karma, without desire, without ego, without self, in an egalitarian inner union of perfect non-duality. Vajrasattva represents the aspects of compassion and skillful means; and the state of perfected wisdom, joined for the ultimate goal of realization: Absolute Compassion and Wisdom (Enlightenment).

Through accomplishment of the meditative practice, Vajrasattva is actually understood as the practitioner in a state of absolute purity, having totally revealed the inner purity of the Buddha Nature within each individual. Thus transformed, the practitioner is enabled to embark further and further along the path of realization; and achieve a deeper personal understanding and actualization of Compassion and Wisdom.

As with any mantra there are many levels to the meaning of the 100-Syllable Mantra. As a result, one should not become fixated upon any one translation of the mantra. For example, each of the syllables in the 100-Syllable Mantra also represents the One Hundred Peaceful and Wrathful Deities resident in one’s own body and encountered in the Bardo State after death. By practicing with an open mind, the deeper levels of the mantra will be revealed.

The approximate meaning of the mantra:

You, Vajrasattva, have generated the holy mind (bodhicitta) according to your pledge (samaya). Your holy mind is enriched with the simultaneous holy actions of releasing transmigratory beings from samsara (the circling, suffering aggregates). Whatever happens in my life – happiness or suffering, good or bad – with a pleased, holy mind, never give up but please guide me. Please stabilize all happiness, including the happiness of the upper realms, actualize all actions and sublime and common realizations, and please make the glory of the five wisdoms abide in my heart.

 

Vajrasattva Purification Practice

We develop bodhicitta, the wish to attain enlightenment for the sake of others. We reflect on how rare and precious this human existence is.

Now, we enter the Vajrayana practice and we come to the meditation and recitation on Vajrasattva, the purpose which is to remove hindrances on the path to enlightenment. These hindrances are the obscurations and negative actions we have accumulated in the past. There are various kinds of negative actions. Some, like killing, stealing, lying or cheating are obviously unvirtues. The main purpose of Vajrasattva practice is to purify these obscurations. It is said, the only virtue of sin is that it can be purified. In fact, everything can be purified, even the most apparently heinous deed. There are four powers in order to purify negative actions completely: the power of refuge, the power of regret, the power of the antidote, and the power of resolution. Purification requires a support for us to express our remorse, make our confession and repair the effects of our past negative actions. In this case, the refuge is Vajrasattva.

Now visualize Vajrasattva above your head, utterly peaceful and smiling, brilliant white like a dazzling snow mountain illuminated by the rays of a hundred thousand suns. He is sitting in full vajra posture, upon a thousand-petalled white lotus and a moon disc. In his right hand he holds a golden vajra at his heart center, and in his left, a silver bell resting on his hip. Vajrasattva is wearing the thirteen Sambhogakaya adornments – the five silken garments and the eight jeweled ornaments. He is in union with his consort, Vajratopa, who holds a curved knife in her right hand and, in her left, a skull cup filled with the nectar of immortality. Visualize Vajrasattva not as someone made of flesh and blood, but like a rainbow in the sky, vivid yet empty. Unlike a rainbow, on the other hand, he is not simply something perceived physically, for he is pervaded with the wisdom and compassion of all the Buddhas. Think of him as your kind root teacher, appearing in the form of Vajrasattva.

The Tibetan syllable HUNG

The second power is the power of deep, intense remorse for one’s past actions. If you had swallowed a deadly poison without realizing it, you would certainly feel desperate when you found out you were going to die. Similarly, up to now you have not been aware of the devastating power that has accumulated from the negative actions you have committed throughout many past lives. Today, realizing that these negative actions are the very cause of your wandering in samsara and of all your suffering, you feel a strong regret at having acted so carelessly. If you do not feel this regret, you will simply continue to accumulate negative actions and extend your suffering.

For the power of the antidote, one-third power, visualize Vajrasattva above your head as previously described, with a moon disc in his heart center, upon which is a white letter HUNG surrounded by the 100-Syllable Mantra. Then recite the 100-Syllable Mantra as many times as you can. While reciting the mantra, generate strong devotion towards Vajrasattva, thinking, “Because of my past actions in this life and in all my previous lives, I am in this miserable situation in samsara.”

In your vision, invoke the wisdom mind of Vajrasattva to purify your negative actions. By the force of your prayer, from the letter HUNG in Vajrasattva’s heart, luminous nectar starts to flow, containing all his wisdom, loving-kindness and power. Through this aperture the nectar descends and fills your body, completely washing away all your obscurations and impurities. Your illnesses come out in the form of pus and blood, negative influences in the form of insects, scorpions, and snakes, and mental obscurations as dark, smoky liquid. As the obscurations flow out of your body, the earth below you opens, down to seven levels below the surface. There, in the form of a red bull with mouth gaping open, is Yama, the Lord of Death. The dirty liquid enters his mouth, and, as he swallows it, turns into nectar. Now all your karmic debts, your past actions, have been totally purified and transformed into wisdom. Your body is purified, and your flesh, blood, bones and skin are no longer gross material substances; they become transparent, clear and luminous inside and out.

The earth beneath you closes again and you are completely purified. The amrita from Vajrasattva still continues to flow down, progressively filling your body. As it fills your head, you receive the blessings of Vajrasattva’s body, and all the negative actions you have committed physically, such as killing, stealing, and sexual misconduct, are purified. When the nectar reaches your throat, you receive the blessings of Vajrasattva’s speech, and all the negative actions you have committed verbally, such as lies, idle chatter, slander, and harsh words, are purified. Then, as the nectar flows down to your heart level, you receive the blessings of Vajrasattva’s mind, and all your negative thoughts, such as animosity, envy, and false views are purified.

After that Vajrasattva dissolves into you. You no longer have your ordinary form, but become Vajrasattva, united with his wisdom consort. Then visualize that from your whole body and from the syllables of the mantra, boundless rays of light emanate, filling the whole universe around you. The universe is now no longer an ordinary, impure place, but the perfect Buddhafield of Vajrasattva, the Buddhafield of Pure Joy. The sentient beings in it are also no longer ordinary: all the males have the form and nature of Vajrasattva, and all the females the form and nature of Vajratopa, his wisdom consort. The external world is a Buddhafield and the beings in it are manifestations of Vajrasattva and Vajratopa. All sounds are the resonance of mantra and all thoughts are the spontaneous display of bliss-emptiness.

 

Vajrasattva Purification

From the HUM at Vajrasattva’s heart, light radiates in all directions, requesting the Buddhas to bestow their blessings. They accept the request and send white rays of light and nectar, the essence of which is the knowledge of their body, speech and mind. The light and nectar absorb into the HUM and the letters of the mantra at Vajrasattva’s heart. They then fill his whole body completely, enhancing the magnificence of his appearance and increasing the brilliance of the mantra.

While reciting the mantra, visualize that white rays of light and nectar stream continuously from the HUM and mantra at Vajrasattva’s heart. They flow down through the crown of your head and fill every cell of your body and mind with infinite bliss. Recite the mantra at least 21 times or more, if possible.

OM BENZA SATTO SAMAYA MANU PALAYA – BENZA SATTO DENO PATITA – DIDO MAY BHAWA – SUTO KAYO MAY BHAWA – SUPO KAYO MAY BHAWA – ANU RAKTO MAY BHAWA – SARWA SIDDHI MEPAR YATSA – SARWA KARMA SU TSA MAY – TSITAM SHRIYAM KURU HUM – HA HA HA HA HO – BHAGAWAN – SARWA TATHAGATA – BENZA MA MAY MU TSA – BENZA BHAWA MAHA SAMAYA SATO AH HUM PEY

If you have not yet memorized the long mantra, or if you are pressed for time, you may recite the short mantra at least 28 times.

OM BENZA SATO HUM

While reciting either of the mantras, continue to visualize the flow of light and nectar and perform the following four visualizations alternately.

 

Purification of Body

Your disturbing attitudes and negativities in general and particularly those of the body, take the form of black ink. Sickness takes the form of pus and blood and afflictions caused by spirits appear in the form of scorpions, snakes, frogs and crabs. Flushed out by the light and nectar, they all leave your body through the lower openings, like filthy liquid flowing down a drain pipe. Feel completely empty of these problems and negativities; they no longer exist anywhere.

 

Purification of Speech

Your disturbing attitudes and imprints of negativities of speech take the form of liquid tar. The light and nectar fill your body as water fills a dirty glass: the negativities, like the dirt, rise to the top and flow out through the upper openings of your body: your eyes, ears, mouth, nose, etc. Feel completely empty of these problems; they no longer exist.

 

Purification of the Mind

Your disturbing attitudes and the imprints of mental negativities appear as darkness at your heart. When struck by the forceful stream of light and nectar, the darkness completely vanishes. It is like turning a light on in a room: the darkness does not go anywhere, it simply ceases to exist. Feel that you are completely empty of all these problems; they are non-existent.

 

Simultaneous Purification

Do the three above visualizations simultaneously. This sweeps away the subtle obscurations that prevent you from seeing correctly all that exists. Feel completely free of these obscurations.

 

The Power of the Promise

Determine with all your heart to abstain as much as possible from thoughts, beliefs, feelings, words and actions that lead to pain and unhappiness. Promise Vajrasattva: I shall not create these negative actions from now until tomorrow, next week, next month, etc.

Vajrasattva is extremely pleased and says,
“My spiritual child of the essence, all your negativities,
obscurations and degenerated vows have been completely purified.”

HH Pabongkha Rinpoche asks us to have faith that we are pure now. All is ultimately in the mind: obscuration and purification. Meditate like this and be free like space, innocent, open, radiant, NEW.

With delight, Vajrasattva melts into light and dissolves into you. Your body, speech and mind become inseparably one with Vajrasattva’s holy body, speech and mind. Concentrate on this.

 

Dedication

Due to this merit may I soon
attain the enlightened state of Vajrasattva,
that I may be able to liberate
all sentient beings from their suffering.

May the precious Bodhi mind
not yet born arise and grow.
May that born have no decline,
but increase forever more.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this sharing of Vajrasattva Purification practice. I am getting to the point much better now in visualization after reading and understand better. In life without realising we have accumulated many negative actions that keep us in samsara. We are fortunate to learn from this practice how to purify our negative karma from our past life. It’s a important practice as explained by Rinpoche. I am glad to come across this post to learn and practice. Thanks again with folded hands.

  2. Chris on Oct 11, 2018 at 10:54 am

    We have alot of karma with us. We created them through our actions from this lives and even previous lives. We have good karma and also bad karma. Bad karma is the one that we should be worried about. Negative karma brings us bad experiences where we will have to suffer. It can bring us anything bad that can happen to us such as illness, accidents, negative emotions, and even bad environmental conditions.

    Hence, it is very important for us to engage in purification practices. Purification practices are practices that specifically help us to purify all those negative karmas before they ripen and explode on us. When we do purification practices, we generate as much merit as we can to lessen the effect of the negative karma.

    For example, we have the karma to die in a car crash. Due to purification practices and collecting of merit, we might just have a small car accident where we can get off with just a flat tire or dented side. The effect of the karma is reduced to the level where we still can handle it and not too overwhelming. Hence, it is very important for us to do our purification practices before our eons of negative karma ripen on its own. Learn how to do purification practices here.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this simple and very easy Vajrasattva Purification practice to everyone.🙏😘 I would like to share the mantra song for everyone to enjoy listening and sing along 😍. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ERg3jy2zYjA

    “At first it is very painful and creates so much anxiety that we almost want to quit but in the end we are healed if we persevere. We must not quit. Quitting brings us nothing but false comfort zones. Same goes for purification practices, we have to go through much anguish and pain at times but the ‘toxins’ will come out.”

    I don’t know why, but the Vajrasattva mantra, along with Migstema is extra wonderful for me. After not doing it for a few days; I was astounded (and horrified) when when I tried to, I immediately felt oddly sleepy and dull, and did not feel as light and ‘clear’ as I used to following it.

    This went on for a few days 🙁

    Lesson learnt; do not be lazy and think everything will just work out. As it won’t and you will end up on postponing.

  5. Alice Tay on Jan 25, 2018 at 12:50 am

    From beginningless time we have accumulated many negative actions that keep us in samsara. Due to our ignorance, we continue to develop our self-cherishing and self grasping mind that caused many problems such disharmony in families, jealousy and many other negativities.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this clear and precise explanation about Vajrasattva practice. Without this practice, this is difficult for us to purify our accumulated negative karma since beginningless time and develop great compassion and bodhicitta towards enlightenment path.

    Good purification is like having a massive cleaning of the mind. A clear and focus mind is essential in our dharma practice.
    Vajrasattva practice can purify our negative karma and stop the vicious cycle of getting and giving pain when combined with the four opponent power. We have to regret sincerely over our actions, having refuge in the Three Jewels to correct our actions, applying the remedy which is Vajrasattva practice and lastly promise not to repeat the action. Our spiritual practice will improve.

  7. Wai Meng Wan on Jul 18, 2017 at 10:19 pm

    Vajrasattava mantras is quite amazing and easy to remember, it is almost like we don’t need to make an effort to remember but we will remember it after some time. Very fortunate we have mantras that we can recite to stop karma from growing and even purify the karma. Of course best is we don’t need to purify at al, but if we must very good to do the practice with the 4 opponent powers.

  8. Stella Cheang on May 30, 2017 at 6:24 pm

    In this life and previous lives, we have accumulated much negative karma due to our habituation from deep ignorance. It is pertinent to do purification practice so that our negative karma does not ripen and cause us to create more negative karma.

    Many would think that when negative karma arose, the karma is purified. It is not exactly correct. Based on Rinpoche’s teaching on Youtube “While I still can,” when negative karma arose, we experience the negative karma. We do not purify it per se. However, when negative karma arose, due to our deeply-rooted habituation, we react to the negative karma negatively. These are causes for us to create more negative karma.

    The example given by Rinpoche is when we conduct adultery in this life, we will take rebirth as a snake in our next life. When we take rebirth as a snake, we experience the bad karma of adultery. But, as a snake, we kill and harm others every other day. These non-virtuous actions will keep us in the virtuous cycle of negative karma.

    Purification practice is important for us to recognize our past erroneous actions and make amends by purifying our body action, speech, and thinking. In this way, we also stop ourselves from incurring further negative karma.

    Thank you, Rinpoche for this teaching.

  9. Joy on Aug 16, 2016 at 4:07 am

    This is such a clear and concise explanation about the Vajrasattva practice I have ever come acrossed! Thank you Rinpoche for this treasure teachings and how fortunate we are to have this information and knowledge to know that we are able to do something for ourselves to actually be able to help ourselves/save ourselves from all the negative things we have done in our past.

    It truly amazing and really how fortunate we are that there is such a practice. It is said, the only virtue of sin is that it can be purified. In fact, everything can be purified, even the most apparently heinous deed. This goes to show how compassionate the Buddhas are to manifest in such a way and to give us a way to purify our karma. Hence, we need to seize whatever opportunity we have to engage in such practices because no one wants to experience their negative karma. I love the visualisation but most importantly is the four opponent powers and this is probably the hardest because how are we to feel about something we have done in our past lives… this is when deep contemplation is definitely required and the feeling of gratitude.

  10. Wan Wai Meng on Apr 30, 2016 at 3:18 am

    Thank you so much Rinpoche for giving us a potent practice for us to purify our countless karma we have collected over countless lifetimes.

  11. Judy Chen on Apr 15, 2016 at 12:44 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I am so glad I read this blog post on Vajrasattva. Now I know, I have a very bad obscurations of my mind and ignorance of dharma. I was not able to recite the 100 syllable mantra initially and I must admit that due to that I completely did not read this post.
    Actually this is a very simple and effective way to purify our negative karma. We should be practicing this wisely and consistently.

    With folded hands
    Thank you very much, Rinpoche.

  12. Ai Nin on Dec 10, 2015 at 12:53 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for such powerful purification practice to purify our negative karma. As to-date I have completed my 1st session retreat of 30,000 mantra. Initially I noticed recitation of long mantra was not smooth and obstacle arise. I unable to sit well during first week of retreat and feel sleepy at evening session which it never happened during Dorje Shugden for twenty one times mantra. Then I changed by practice 9 rounds breath in and out before prayer start. I also read through the 4 powers as mentioned in the post before prayer start. I noticed it works better. It helps me to focus better by recite long mantra and practise visualization both together although sometimes our monkey mind swaying around.

    I will continue remaining of 70,000 mantra recitation. I will just observe whatever obstacle arise and take it as to train to calm my mind and practise acceptance. I wish I may benefit others more by this purification.

    Once again, thank you Rinpoche for this cause. Thank you.

    With folded hands,
    Ai Nin

  13. June Kang on Dec 1, 2015 at 12:14 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for this great sharing and helpful post. I recite everyday without knowing much about the meaning of mantra. it helps to increase the faith towards the recitation of the mantra. Once understand already, feel more powerful and meaningful when reciting the mantra.

    And i always look for a very good explanation of the 4 powers of purify the negative karma , and here Rinpoche explain clearly and easily to understand.

    Thank you.

  14. Sarah Yap on Nov 30, 2015 at 5:27 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing such a detailed explanation of Vajrasatta’s practice. Vajrasattva was one of the first mantras that I learn when I first joined Dharma and still recite it until today. I truly am glad that there are practices like Vajrasattva and the 35 Confessional Buddhas to help us purify our negative karma that have been collected from countless of lifetimes. We are fortunate that the Buddhas manifest in so many various ways to help sentient beings.

  15. Chris Chong on Nov 24, 2015 at 8:08 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for explain the Vajrasattva Purification practice in such great detail and shared it with us. It is my understanding that because of past live’s habituation, imprints and negative karma, we are unable to perceive and see things in their true nature. We are bound to repeat the same mistakes again and again due to our deluded mind. Hence, it is important for us to purify those negative karma because it will obstruct us in our spiritual practice.

    Chris

  16. Jill Yam on Nov 24, 2015 at 1:57 pm

    Dear Rinpoche

    Thank you for explaining the whole process and the benefits of reciting the 100 syllabus Vajrasattva mantras.
    We being in samara have accumulated a lot of negative karma and it’s just amazing that there is an antidote to purify our karma if we do it correctly with remorse.
    I have being doing the Vajrasattva mantra together with my sadhana and now I’m glad I’m able to learn how to incorporate it with the visualisation.
    Once again thank you Rinpoche for always thinking of ways to help us to purify our negative karma apart from accumulating merits.

    With love
    Jill Yam

  17. Han on Nov 22, 2015 at 10:32 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this beneficial post, very clear and comprehensive. Definitely want to engage in this powerful purification practice, to purify my accumulative negative karma, to get rid of all the internal toxins…

    From this post, I understand that one of the powerful counters of karma and it’s effects is purification practice. Rinpoche explained clearly that

    “The more we engage in purification practices like Vajrasattva, we can see diseases heal, our minds become calm, we find peace, we find hope and our mental anquishes leseen for sure. Our various problems start to clear. Dharma knowledge starts to saturate our minds deeper and easier. Attachments don’t afflict us as much and so on. Why? Because the karma fueling them is being purified.”

    How fortunate that we can learn this powerful & precious practice from Rinpoche through blog post, may many people gain benefits from this great article and engage in this powerful purification practice.

  18. JP on Nov 21, 2015 at 12:13 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the clear and concise explanation on Vajrasattva. It is definitely something that all of us can incorporate into our daily practice to purify our negative karma. As Rinpoche clearly explains, “Karma brings us illness, misfortune, tragedies, pain, death, separation, rebirths,  ill births, anguish and so on. There is no end how creative karma can be to make sure we suffer for as along as we let it. Samsara’s basis is karma from ignorance. Karma’s trick is to put us in a situation that is seemingly pleasurable but in reality it only brings pain in the long run. Karma’s method is deception.”.

    Knowing that there are effective methods to purify our negativities gives us hope that situations can always change for the better if we choose wisely and consistently.

  19. Li Kheng on Nov 20, 2015 at 4:00 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and blog team for this very clear explanation of Vajrasattva practice. I recite this prayer daily but with the guidance on visualization and detailed explanation revealing the significance of the verse, the effect will certainly be deeper. As Rinpoche always says: learn and we will gain knowledge, knowledge opens the doors to understanding and understanding will influence our perceptions which in turn impacts our responses. Our responses of body, speech and mind will then create karma or merits.

    The “Dharma system” is extremely logical and practical and relatable.

    In the lamrim, I also understand that most of our practices for beginner are completely focused on purification and collection of merits. I believe it is because purification will provide a clean slate for Dharma to access and enter our minds. Purification will also reduce the hindrance that derail us from our practice. It is like detoxing.

    On the other hand, merits is the ingredient to fuel our dharma practice. It is like the nourishment to keep us going.

    Again, thank you so much for this blog post.

  20. Nicholas on Nov 19, 2015 at 12:10 am

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this article to let us know that we are bias by our karma, which comes from our action.

    We cannot leave our karma as it’s as it will ripen when the time and the condition is right. By that time it will be too late for us o do anything and we may have to put extra effort to deal with it.

    What I like about Buddhism is we can make a change for good instead of just blaming with whatever excuses.

    As we believe we have countless previous lives and for sure we have done many good and also bad. With this bad action we had done it will comes back to manifest the negative result on our life and to make us more suffer.

    I feel grateful that my Guru had thought of the ways to purify our karma through various practices and in this article is the Vajrasattva.

    By purifying our karma we will have a good condition to practice Dharma and less suffering to be experience.

  21. Jason on Nov 15, 2015 at 1:12 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thanks for sharing this article to us. I’m not in retreat yet but myself did recite one mala of vajrasattva mantra but I can feel that it take long time to finish because I recite half way I will fall sleep. So I restart again. Is this a process of karma purification ?anyway , I will keep recite it because I know it will benefit me n help me can carry forward my dharma works. I trust on my guru Tsem Rinpoche. Last but not least, I need to thanks again Tsem Rinpoche and wish u long live and turn the Dhama wheel to benefit more people.

    Jason

  22. Wong Suet Moi on Nov 14, 2015 at 10:05 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing. This is good news to hear that all karma can be purified. I will try my best to understand it and to do this visualization during the retreat.

    At the first ten days i did feel tough to recite the mantra as one mala take about 40 to 30 minutes. However, i gain the courage to force myself continue to do it when look at Rinpoche photo right in front of me. Rinpoche had gone through all difficulties just to benefit others, what is that for me just to recite the long mantra, ” so called long mantra”. When think of it i took a deep breath and just do it. I told myself just do it and need to keep it up.

  23. Jacinta Goh on Nov 13, 2015 at 2:18 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    It was roughly two years ago that I have encountered Buddhism and ever since then, Vajrasattva has been my nightly purification practice. It was suggested by Kalu Rinpoche that we should do it at night (one Mala or at least half of it, gulp!) , to purify all the negativities before we sleep. It cannot be left unpurified till the next day! One also should chant it slowly (I am not) with the visualisation well. I feel that when I chant it slowly together with the recollection of past misdeeds, I will feel great remorse as if it’s difficult for even I, myself to forgive my misdeeds. However, this feeling of guilty soon overwhelmed by the thought that I should do something to make the situation better or at least to abstain from creating more non-virtues. There were several times where I felt more energetic after the mantra recitation as if I had wasted a lot of time for sleeping although my body reacted otherwise, hehehe…Besides, I remembered Rinpoche said that one should try to do the long mantra instead of short ones. Although at first it seems like taking forever to chant the mantra even for 21 times only but not long after that, it flows naturally and whenever I did something wrong or due to negligence, I will chant this mantra. I watched Rinpoche’s teaching on this several times here http://youtu.be/2KIw9_PcwZw and I think I will revisit it again.

    However, in the Dorje Shudgen retreat prayer, Rinpoche mentioned that we should instead visualise three Deities strongly while chanting this mantra, namely Je Rinpoche, Manjushri and Yamantaka. I wonder why?

    Thank you Rinpoche for this post and it’s a strong message that we should do this practice even when we are practicing tantra. Also, this practice is very complete in itself where it can also purify even the heaviest misdeeds. I will continue to do this practice although sometimes I do wonder if I did it correctly or not. I remember the story where even Lama Atisha quickly dismounted from his horse and purifed his wrongdoing in that instant. Hence, we should do likewise too.

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I have always known that I have many negativities and negative Karma and seek a way to purify myself.

    This post is very helpful and I will definitely practise this purification practice and thank you very much.

  26. Sharon Ong on Nov 12, 2015 at 12:24 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    This is a very beneficial and informative post especially for beginners like me. I am grateful to Rinpoche for this teaching as I now have a better understanding of this powerful purification practice and will be incorporating the visualisations into my daily 100-syllable recitations. I hope to be able to do the Vajrasattva retreat in the near future.

    Thank you with folded hands.

  27. Lum Kok Luen on Nov 11, 2015 at 11:17 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you very much for this teaching on purification. We really need this teaching to help us reduce our negative karmas and propel us to higher practices.

    Humbly yours,
    Lum Kok Luen

  28. Pastor Lim Han Nee on Nov 11, 2015 at 6:38 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for this powerful purification practice. This practice incorporates the four opponent powers.Doing this practice also purifies all negative actions of body, speech and mind.The whole practice culminates with Vajrasattva melting into light and dissolving into us. Our body, speech and mind become inseparably one with Vajrasattva’s holy body, speech and mind. Then we concentrate on this.

    This Vajrasattva purification practice is very powerful and compact, and much purification is effected through the visualization.

  29. Shelly tai on Nov 11, 2015 at 4:30 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this powerful practice with us, I already started reciting the 100 hunderd syllabus of Vajrasattav mantras I deligently recite 50 times a day so I will try to add in the visualization into the recitation.

    尊贵的仁波切,

    谢谢您的开示, 关于金刚萨垛的持修法门, 净化的过程身心所带来的影响, 如何观想来净化我们的身语意的障碍等等, 这开示对我来说实在是太好了 !

    感恩上师您那么详细的开示与讲解, 这一定会让进行金刚萨垛闭关的同修们, 身语意上的障碍讯促得以净化 !

    愿上师健康, 长寿, 长转法轮, 吉祥如意 !

    I can personally attest to the effectiveness of his short mantra. I’ve already accumulated 118,000 recitations to date of the short mantra, and only at 40,000 combined with visualization and the four opponent powers, I had some of those purification dreams, and felt lighter afterward. Best too do the long mantra for more purification of karma but short mantra works too. 🙂 I highly recommend this practice to anyone interested in Tibetan Buddhism. Very easy too do. This practice was one of the original ones I started to meditate with. Do to my commitments & lazy mind hehe, I should start working on the hundred syllable long mantra but I thank you H.E. Tsem Rinpoche for explaining it so well & clear :).

  32. Sarah on Nov 10, 2015 at 9:50 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for this explanation of the Vajrasattva practice. For beginners like me, besides collection of merits, purification should be a very important part of our practice. I’ve just invited a Vajrasattva statue from Kechara Paradise and will start doing this purification practice as soon as I’ve completed my Lama Tsongkhapa retreats.

  33. wansan on Nov 10, 2015 at 9:15 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for always taking the time to give precious teachings and making them available online. _/\_

    We have accumulated so much negative karma since beginningless time, literally. Every action that we had done or are doing, without us knowing it, creates some negative karma. Unless we are fully aware and mindful and really check ourselves thoroughly before doing any actions, we are constantly creating negative karma, small or big. But everything has its cure, so does karma! Thank Buddha.

    Rinpoche has always advised us to engage in purification practices as we really, really need them. Reading this article allows me to understand more of this amazing deity, Vajrasattva and its quality and power. Most importantly the meaning of the mantra and the visualisation. Can’t wait to incorporate this powerful visualisation every time I recite Vajrasattva’s mantra.

    With folded hands,
    wansan

    It is also said that Icchantikas are those who were once Buddhists but later abandoned the Buddha’s teachings and did the opposite of what the Buddha had taught. We must be careful of our thoughts and actions and do only what the Buddha had said. If our thoughts or actions are not correct, we are creating the cause to not practice Buddhism and we can end up as an Icchantika.

    But there are still hopes for the Icchantikas. As Buddha had said before, nothing stays the same forever and every being has the potential of becoming a Buddha, that includes Icchantikas. It is just it will take a long time for the Icchantikas to exhaust the negative karma they have created and then be able to learn Dharma again. It is better not to become an Icchantikas, life in hell is pure sufferings. If we feel we are suffering now as a human being, the suffering Icchantikas will have to go through is even worse.

    Jeong Kwan is such an inspiring nun. She can turn almost anything into dharma practice even making soy sauce. She must had some realizations to be able to see the dharma in everything. I love it when she was asked whether she misses the monastery, she replied that she is happy now.

    That sentence speaks a lot about her inner world. She is happy to be present. Many people would have said I miss this and that and all of those will be in the past. Jeong Kwan lives in the present and she truly experiences the present. That is why Buddha taught us to be in the present at all times.

    She left home after her mother passed away and she vows to never ever to give such pain of someone losing their mother to her kids. What a compassionate human being that rather takes on life of a nun in order to not hurt others.

    It is not uncommon to hear a Buddha statue performing miracles. Sometimes, Buddha will show signs to strengthen people’s faith. In Nepal, there are some holy sites where Buddha images self-arise on a rock, one of the famous self-arisen Buddha is Tara image in Pharphing. The eyes of the White Tara in this article were closed when she was first discovered. Later, she showed miracles by opening her eyes! It was said she also showed a secret mantra during the consecration ceremony.

    Did you know some Tibetan monks have the power to do divination and give advice to help people remove their obstacles? Through divination, Buddhas and enlightened beings are able to communicate with us to give us assistance. In the Gelug lineage, two of the most popular and effective divination methods are that of Palden Lhamo and Dorje Shugden. Read more about the divination method here:

    His Holiness the Dalai Lama wrote a prayer to Dorje Shugden way before he banned the practice. The reason that was given is that he did not realize the true nature of Dorje Shugden. That is not logical at all.

    His Holiness is the emanation of Buddha of Compassion, Chenrezig and everyone know it. How can a Buddha be fooled by a spirit and the Buddha actually wrote a prayer to the spirit? Those who actually believed this reason is belittling His Holiness’s attainments.

    There is no way for His Holiness to be fooled by Dorje Shugden and that is why this move by His Holiness is not logical at all. If a spirit can fool a Buddha, why are we taking refuge in the Buddha? His Holiness must have his own reason for this and we should have faith in His Holiness especially during this time.

    The 4th Zhabdrung Rinpoche of Bhutan and Dorje Shugden

    The 4th Zhabdrung Jigme Norbu, from the reincarnation lineage of Zhabdrung Ngawang Namgyal, included extensive prayers to Dorje Shugden in his collected works (gsung ‘bum). Imagine, the practice of Dorje Shugden is practiced in many countries and his practice so beneficial that even the 4th Zhabdrung Rinpoche wrote prayers to him, as recorded and archived in the National Library of Bhutan.

    Do you know what is the role of a guru? A guru has the responsibility to guide the students to enlightenment. To be enlightened, we have to develop good qualities and get rid of the bad qualities we have. It requires a great amount of merits to meet a qualified guru. When we have met our guru we should cherish it because anything our guru says to us or instructs us to do is to help us to get positive results in our spiritual practice so we will eventually achieve enlightenment.

    Wow, look at how talented this Chinese fashion designer, Guo Pei is. She is full of imagination and creativity. She is a good example of how we can put our imagination into reality. Sometimes what we want to do sounds impossible to others, but if we don’t believe in ourselves and try to do it, we will never know. Never give up what we think it’s right to do if it is not something that will create harm to others.

    The 14th Dalai Lama who is against the Dorje Shugden practice wrote a praise to Dorje Shugden before, this is very nice to know. The Dalai Lama propitiated Dorje Shugden in his early days. It was until 20 years ago, he announced that he has made a mistake to pray to Dorje Shugden and that Dorje Shugden is actually an evil spirit. The question is, how can a highly attained being make a mistake when he has the power to see the true nature of all sentient beings?

    In fact, when a highly attained being makes a mistake, it is done deliberately for a higher purpose. His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche said before when the Dalai Lama and Dorje Shugden seem to be against each other, we should not lose faith in either of them. Because Dorje Shugden followers are ‘outcast’ by the Dalai Lama, the Chinese government feels very safe to allow Dorje Shugden Lamas to spread Buddhist teachings. This is how the Dalai Lama helps to revive Buddhism in China even when he is not in China. If the Dalai Lama can manifest a mistake for propitiating Dorje Shugden, he can also later say he makes a mistake for saying Dorje Shugden is an evil spirit.

    Bryn Athyn Monster Spirit

    In the Buddhist scriptures, specifically in the Dukkar texts, it mentions 80 different types of spirits that abide in different realms. Within these different types, there are subdivisions so there are many different types of spirits. Spirits can manifest in many dimensions, travel very fast (at the speed of light), and have some levels of clairvoyance. Some spirits are harmful and some spirits are neutral; some spirits may even be helpful.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

Many years ago, I had this 5ft Four-Armed Avalokitesvara made. It was done in Delhi, escorted to Tsem Ladrang in Gaden Shartse Monastery South India. Then my students and myself offered mantras, relics, jewels and brocades on this beautiful image as per tradition. Special rituals were done to consecrate it. Then I offered this image to the main shrine of Gaden Shartse Monstery for the sangha and visitors to pay homage to. The sangha and abbot were very happy. Till this day this beautiful image of compassion is still there in Gaden Shartse Monastery along with the many other thangkas, statues, repairs and offerings I had the honor to offer to the monastery. May all be blessed by Avalokitesvara, Tsem Rinpoche

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
