TIBETAN MONKS, GADEN SHARTSE MONASTERY, EVENTS
Vajravidarin Group Healing and Purification Ritual
Geshe Lobsang Wangyal
Join us at Sphericality in Flemington as we welcome back The Tibetan Monks of Gaden Shartse Monastery. On Friday, October 5 at 6:30pm we invite you to participate in a beautiful Tibetan group healing ritual called Vajravidarin. (Private healings from 3pm to 6pm. See below)
“The Tantric ritual of Vajravidarin will be the primary focus of private and group healings. Vajravidarin is a ritual of purification and has three stages: purification and removing of negativities; removing subtle negative imprints; and offering protection. The vajra master will take the form of this Buddha of Purification and use his power to cleanse participants. Vajravidarin purifies sickness, mental disturbances, infectious diseases, disputes, enmities, defllements, misfortunes, bad omens, victimization by others, premature death, negative influences of the stars, harm from rulers and thieves, influence of demons, the agents of death, obstacles, misguidance, and factors against congenial life.”
Purification: The Lama instructs participants through visualizations and ritual and then pours radiant nectar and rays of light into their mind and body.
Removing subtle negative imprints: The Lama instructs participants through visualization and ritual and then takes the negative subtle imprints and transforms them into Inexhaustible Bliss. He will then summon the negative forces and will use the Bliss to appease them. Finally, he disperses the negative forces and instructs them not to return.
Protection: The Lama creates a diamond‑like impenetrable layer of light around and within the participant.
