Buddha Vajrasattva is the manifestation of the completely pure mind of all Buddhas. This special blessing ceremony will allow us to make a deep connection with Buddha Vajrasattva’s enlightened mind, lay down the painful burden of our past negativities, and receive deep healing through his purifying blessings.

During the Empowerment and related commentary, Gen Suma will teach us how we can purify our mind, thereby clearing out the obstacles that prevent us from steadily actualizing our potential to experience lasting freedom and happiness.

The retreat sessions on Sunday will offer an opportunity to be guided in purification practice, giving us confidence to continue on our own.


“One of the greatest gifts of Dharma is that it teaches us how to purify our past non-virtues.”
