Video: Vajrasattva 100 Syllable Sanskrit Mantra: 2 Hours of Purification; Removes Bad Luck and Obstacles

Feature Contents

    Sweeping away the obstacles, bad karma, bad luck and negativities of the old year, going into a new year with a purified “clean slate”, is an important lunar New Year practice in Buddhism. It’s also an important practice before formal retreats, important ventures and dedications, or any important “launch” of something new. Or, just anytime. It is critical to purify negative karma endlessly, since our lives are impermanent.

    Chant along, while keeping in mind the Four Rs of Vajrasattva Practice: Refuge, Regret, Remedy (this mantra) and Refrain from future negative conduct. Visualize all of your negativities, obstacles and diseases purified by glorious white light. Listening or chanting are both beneficial.




    For chant along:
    Oṃ Vajrasattva
    samayam anupālaya
    Vajrasattva tvenopatiṣṭha
    dṛḍho me bhava
    sutoṣyo me bhava
    supoṣyo me bhava
    anurakto me bhava
    sarva siddhiṃ me prayaccha
    sarva karma sucha me
    chittaṃ śreyaḥ kuru hūṃ
    ha ha ha ha ho
    sarva tathāgata vajra
    mā me muñcha
    vajrī bhava
    mahā samaya sattva āḥ
