Where Do All of Our Good and Bad Experiences Come From?
Vajrasattva is the Buddha of Purification, who possesses the special power to remove negative karma. Through receiving Vajrasattva’s empowering blessings and practicing the meditation and mantra recitation of Vajrasattva, gradually all the obstacles to our happiness and good fortune will be purified. This empowerment is a special opportunity to enrich your spiritual life, bring benefit to all, and learn how to progress swiftly on the path to enlightenment.

Good and bad experiences arise from our karma. If we understand the law of karma we will understand how we can control our future experiences by purifying and abandoning our negative karma that are the causes of anxiety, worry, unhappiness, and all mental and physical pain. The wonderful news is that negative karma can be cleansed and purified; Buddha Vajrasattva in particular has great power to purify our mind.

An empowerment is a special blessing ceremony where we make a close connection with a Buddha, an Enlightened Being, in order to receive blessings and develop our good qualities. During an empowerment there are meditations, guided visualizations, and prayers, followed by teachings to explain the practice.
