PODCAST: Vajrasattva Buddhist Purification: guided audio visulized meditation and 100-syllable mantras

Feature Contents

    Why do many Buddhists consider purification practice to be the ultimate meditative practice? Why do Tibetan Buddhists consider Buddha Vajrasattva practice to be the most perfect and complete of purification practices? Do I need special instruction to practice this most profound purification and healing practice? We answer these questions and more in this presentation. Then, take a visualized meditative journey of body, speech and mind with our editor Lee Kane as he describes a simple purification visualization and ends with 108 repetitions of the profound 100-syllable mantra of Vajrasattva.
