For generations, Buddhist practitioners have relied upon the practice of Vajrasattva to purify even the most negative karma so that one can make swift, easy, and joyful progress along the path to Enlightenment. This in-depth, unguided retreat will begin with an introduction on Friday night about the four powers of purification and how to use them practically in meditation and daily life.
