In general, Vajrasattva is considered the lord of all the Buddha Families with the specific activity of purification. To think of Vajrasattva even for a moment is said to remove the defilements that are the cause of rebirth in samsara.

This Vajrasattva practice was originally called Minling Dorsem because it is the first Mindroling treasure revealer Terdak Lingpa’s treasure. HH Dudjom Rinpoche compiled this Dorsem Lama Chopa, a special offering guru yoga, based on this treasure. The 64-volume Rinchen Terdzö compiled by Jamgön Kongtrul and Jamyang Khyentse, begins with this Vajrasattva practice and it is considered the most important. Entitled “A Chariot of Great Merit,” the practice includes a self-empowerment (dak juk), which purifies all broken samaya. The ritual aspect of this sadhana is elaborate – a rich cycle of deity visualization, mantra, mudra, music and samadhi with the power to awaken our clarity of awareness, our original Buddha nature.

Lama Tharchin Rinpoche teaches on the Daily Practice of Vajrasattva and the sadhana of Dorsem Lama Chӧpa. Special instruction will also include the Dak-juk (self-empowerment), Shakpa (confession) and Kangwa (fulfillment). The text is available in print through Dharma Treasures Bookstore or in digital format.

We hope to have future teachings on aspects of this practice, such as mudra, tormas, shrine set-up, and how to structure a retreat.
