Vajrasattva Purification Practice: A Workshop with Lama Kathy

October 28, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

This class will be offered in person and on Zoom.


There is a pre-requisite of having taken the Vow of Refuge in any of the Mahayana Buddhist traditions.




Many people come to spiritual life because of difficulties in their lives. Some find meditation a healing discipline that allows them to experience their individual stories with a new sense of self-compassion and caring.


Acknowledging and relinquishing blame and shame can be part of this transformative process. As we learn the Buddhist teachings on karma and the power of visualization, we learn that we can change our stories from within, by applying Buddhist purification practices.


Visualizing ourselves in the presence of a healing Buddha, we acknowledge our pain and receive healing and purifying light to begin a new story of inner change and transformation.


This class is especially important for students of Tibetan Buddhism, as the 100-Syllable Mantra of the Buddha Vajrasattva is part of the Mahamudra preliminaries (called “Ngondro”) that prepare us for meditations that connect us to the basic nature of our minds.


At the request of students who received Vajrasattva empowerment from Thrangu Vajra Master Lama Tobden at Columbus KTC in September, Lama Kathy Wesley will teach two short practices of the Buddha Vajrasattva suggested by Lama Tobden himself, so they can use the blessings they received and make it part of their daily practice.


PREREQUISITES: Those attending should have received the Buddhist Vow of Refuge from any of the Mahayana Buddhist traditions and have an interest in the practice of mantra.


Workshop students will receive the text of a short Vajrasattva practice as a PDF they can print and bring to class.
