Vajrasattva Retreat

Buddhist Purification Retreat (unguided)

This retreat is a wonderful opportunity to learn to rely on Vajrasattva, the Buddha of purification and practice a special meditation to free ourself from all of our negative karma.
We spend all our time and energy trying to avoid problems by making changes to our external world. However, our unhappiness and difficulties are not caused by the external world but are the result of the negative karma we have created in the past through our own harmful actions.

By relying upon Vajrasattva, the Buddha of purification and practising a special meditation we can free ourselves from all our negative karma. As a result, all our experiences will be positive, we will have a peaceful, pure mind and will easily remove obstacles to our spiritual development.

What to expect

During a retreat we reduce our normal worldly activities and concentrate for a period of time on developing spiritual qualities and peaceful minds – finding happiness from within. You are welcome to drop in for any or all of the retreat sessions and there is no charge.  Everyone is welcome to enjoy this special opportunity.

There are four retreat sessions a day. Each session lasts for 1h15mins and consists of chanted prayers sung in English and silent meditation.
