Vajrasattva: New Year’s Purification Retreat

December 28, 2014 - January 1, 2015

with Venerable Tenzin Chogkyi

As we develop our wisdom and compassion along the path to enlightenment for the benefit of all beings, one of the main things we need to do is to clean up our negative karma through purification practices. We are human beings who make many mistakes, hurt others, and hurt ourselves, because of not yet having enough wisdom. And then we carry the negative karma of these actions on our mindstream which then ripen and create many obstacles in the future. Vajrasattva purification practice short-circuits this vicious cycle. By understanding the “four opponent powers” and how they directly negate negative karma, we become incredibly empowered in our practice. Finish your year off right by coming for this retreat! Clean house! You will feel very refreshed and joyful afterwards.
