Vajrasattva - Primordial Purity
Dissolving Negative Emotions, Habitual Behaviors and Karma
A Foundational (Ngondro) Practice
From the Palyul Nam Chö: Buddha in the Palm of the Hand
Vajrasattva practice and actualization is one of the foundational dzogchen practices and is the basis of the Guhyagarbha
Tantra (Secret Essence of Magical Net). The Guhyagarbha Tantra (also known as Vajrasattva Magical Net) is one of the
main Inner Tantric texts in the Nyingma tradition and Palyul lineage.
Through accomplishment of the meditative practice, Vajrasattva is actually understood as the practitioner in a state of
absolute purity, having totally revealed the inner purity of the Buddha Nature within each individual. Thus transformed,
the practitioner is enabled to embark further and further along the path of realization; and achieve a deeper personal
understanding and actualization of Compassion and Wisdom.
Vajrasattva is the ultimate embodiment of the aspects of all the Buddhas and is representative of the Diamond-like
Primordial Purity of the Buddha Nature within each individual. Sattva translates as ‘spiritual hero or heroine’ and
Vajra translates as 'diamond thunderbolt' (unbreakable and pure energy). Vajrasattva is also representative of the
100 Peaceful and Wrathful Deities considered to be embodied in each sentient being (as energy points) and also
represents the Union of Compassion and Skillful Means.
Vajrasattva is the ideal of the perfected being: without negative karma, without desire, without ego, without self, in an
egalitarian inner union of perfect non-duality. Vajrasattva represents the aspects of compassion and skillful means;
and the state of perfected wisdom, joined for the ultimate goal of realization: Absolute Compassion and Wisdom
100-Syllable Mantra of Vajrasattva
Nam Chö Version
MP3 - 4 megs
by Lama Palzang, Umze (Chantmaster) at Palyul Ling Retreat Center, NY
Om Benza Sato Samaya, Manu Palaya
Benza Sato Tei No Pa, Tisthira Dridho Me Bawa
Suto Khayo Mei Ba Wa, Anu Rakto Me Ba Wa, Su Po Khayo Mei Ba Wa
Sar Wa Siddhi Mei Pra Yatsa, Sarwa Karma Sutsa Me,
Tsi Tam Shri Yam Kuru Hung, Ha Ha Ha Ha Ho Bagawan
Sarwa Tathagata Hri Daya, Benza Ma Mei Muntsa
Benzi Bhawa Maha Samaya Sato Ah
As with any mantra there are many levels to the meaning of the 100 Syllable Mantra.
As a result, one should not become fixated upon any one translation of the mantra. For example,
each of the syllables in the 100-Syllable Mantra also represents the One Hundred Peaceful
and Wrathful Deities resident in one's own body and encountered in the Bardo State after death.
By practicing with an open mind, the deeper levels of the mantra will be revealed.
The approximate meaning of the mantra: You, Vajrasattva, have generated the holy mind
(bodhicitta) according to your pledge (samaya). Your holy mind is enriched with the simultaneous holy
actions of releasing transmigratory beings from samsara (the circling, suffering aggregates). Whatever
happens in my life-happiness or suffering, good or bad-with a pleased, holy mind, never give up but
please guide me. Please stabilize all happiness, including the happiness of the upper realms, actualize
all actions and sublime and common realizations, and please make the glory of the five wisdoms abide in my heart.
