The Vajrasattva Practice is for mental and physical purification. It is the most powerful purification practice in daily life. Vajrasattva is the deity that embodies the purification powers of all the Buddhas. If one practices sincerely with the correct motivation, all the negativities we have accumulated in this life and previous lives can be removed.
Vajrasattva practices are common to all of the four schools of Tibetan Buddhism and are used to purify obscurations. As such, Vajrasattva practice is an essential element of Tibetan Buddhist practice.
In addition to personal practice, the Vajrasattva mantra is regarded as having the ability to purify karma, bring peace, and cause enlightened activity in general.
Vajrasattva practice is a tantric meditation done for the purification of karma.
It is undertaken with the aim to purify all our karma in order to reach enlightenment as quickly as possible in order to be best enable one to help all sentient beings. It is aimed at purifying ourselves of karma. Karma refers either to the uncontrollably recurring mental urges that bring us to act, speak, or think in a specific manner, or to the impulses with which those karmic actions are carried out and those karmic tendencies (seeds), in our mental continuum. Purification of karma means eliminating the possibility of our experiencing the karmic results from our past actions spanning countless previous lifetimes, as well as the elimination of obstacles in the way of what we want to achieve.
