This teaching is a wisdom treasure of Rigdzin Tsewang Norbu, From the Clear Depths of the Heart Sphere of Vajrasattva. Traditionally not taught in public, it was given only to those who had completed Ngondro (the preliminary practices) and maintained a strict retreat. This Vajrasattva practice is extraordinarily rich and beautiful, containing highly effective methods to heal ourselves and others, purify negative karma, and enter into the clear light state.

Ayang Rinpoche has said, “On the ultimate level, the body, speech, wisdom, qualities and activities of the Buddhas of the three times are all included in one mandala in Vajrasattva. The mandalas and mantras of all these Buddhas are also included in Vajrasattva. The one hundred deities from the Tibetan Book of the Dead are included in the Five Buddha Families, and those Five Buddha Families are included in Vajrasattva.” He describes this Vajrasattva practice as “a complete path to enlightenment”.
