The Power of Purification Retreat

An Online Weekend Retreat from Drolma Centre

Saturday 12 – Sunday 13 December 2020

Enjoy the practice of cleansing our mind of all delusions and negativity by relying upon Vajrasattva, the Buddha of Purification.

Under the influence of deluded minds, we have engaged in many negative actions and, as a result, we now experience suffering and problems every day. By relying upon Buddha Vajrasattva we have the precious opportunity to purify this negativity, and thus transform our mind and our experience of the world we live in. The meditation and recitation of Vajrasattva is a powerful practice of purification and a quick method to attain future happiness and spiritual realizations.

This meditation retreat will include practical teachings & guided meditations on how to purify our negative karma by relying on Buddha Vajrasattva.

You do not need to have had a Vajrasattva empowerment to attend this retreat.

Buddhist nun and Resident Teacher Kelsang Malaya who has over 20 years experience of practising meditation will guide this retreat.

Everyone is welcome. Perfect for beginners and more experienced meditators.

Booking will be open until 30 minutes before the start of the retreat
