Pure Mind, Pure World Vajrasattva Empowerment, Saturday & Sunday October 14 – 15, in Columbia, South Carolina

“This practice is a scientific method to purify our mind and transform it from an impure mind into a pure mind using Tantric technology.”

— Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche, Oral Instructions of the Mahamudra

This Special Weekend Event with Buddhist Monk Kelsang Tabkay will be held at Kadampa Meditation Center South Carolina in Columbia South Carolina.

Buddha Vajrasattva is the embodiment of the completely pure mind of all the Buddhas. The empowerment is a special opportunity for us to receive the purifying blessings of this radiant healing Buddha through which we can free our mind from the negativities and wounds of the past.

The subsequent commentary will focus on how we can swiftly and joyfully purify our mind and thus profoundly improve our lives, enabling us to actualize our potential for lasting freedom and happiness. Everyone welcome.
