Vajrasattva, literally “the Diamond Being,” represents the indivisible wisdom and bliss that are the quintessence of the enlightened state. In this particular manifestation, he embodies the enlightened principle of purification. Buddhist tantric literature specifically points out how the meditation on Vajrasattva—together with the recitation of his 100-syllable mantra—can completely purify all forms of karmic obscurations and transgressions. This practice can be understood as a process for clearing one’s habitual unhealthy habit patterns and is also one of the essential foundations for all advanced tantric practice.
 
Pre-requisites:
1)
  You must have taken Refuge in the Three Jewels and attended the Foundation Series (or its equivalent) or;
