Vajrasattva meditation and recitation

The purpose of their tours and stay with me, is to raise money for the Gaden Shartse Monastery. They have been in asylum for decades from the Chinese invasion in Tibet. They are the largest monastery. They offer their teachings, mentoring, debate, and a variety of Tibetan Buddhist rituals to promote self awareness and realization. Topics studies, and rituals they focused on with me were: purification of negativities, cultivating emptiness, freedom from the tyranny of the ego, the Tantras ( and why they have been kept secret for centuries), Vajrasattva meditation and recitation, chanting, mandalas and impermanence, purification and cleansing of house and self.
