Vajrasattva is the archetype of purification and restoration, the central purpose of practice. As an Adi-Buddha or primary archetype, he/she/they re-present a great fullness of mindful compassion, the very core of the teachings. Vajrasattva could also be translated as the active practice of undivided or perhaps unified being … both universal and individual, holistic, and intimate, like a diamond with many facets. One can think of Vajrasattva as all the efforts to heal and maintain the path of peace, in oneself and the world: now, in the past and in the future.
Vajrasattva series: 1 & 2 April, 17 & 18 June, 19 & 20 August and 18 & 19 November. Saturdays, 3.30pm – 4.30pm: Discourse, questions & comments and suggestions for practising. Sundays, 9.50am – 11am: Interactive wongkur (ceremonial, symbolic, sacred theatre) related to the previous day’s discourse. Each weekend will celebrate and explore a different Vajrasattva text.
All sessions are live in the studio, on ZOOM and recorded (available for 3 days only post session).
