'Vajrasattva represents primeval purity, the purity of the mind from the beginning, the stainless sparkling purity of the mind that has remained unsoiled and untouched from beginningless ages.'
In the Vajrasattva sadhana practice one purifies oneself by realising that in one's deepest nature, outside space and time, one has never been impure. On this retreat, we will be devoting ourselves to the practice of the Vajrasattva sadhana. As well as being a sadhana practice in its own right, the Vajrasattva practice is also one of the mula yogas.
The retreat is open both to Order members who are already practising the Vajrasattva sadhana, as well as to those who want to learn it, and full instruction will be given. There will be discussion and exploration of the practice and the mantra, and an emphasis on confession and purification, Metta Bhavana, six element practice, and puja as well as the meditation on Vajrasattva himself and some days of silence.
The retreat starts with dinner on the first day at 6:30pm and finishes on the final day at 10.00am.
