Hello,
I received an empowerment for this Vajrasattva practice, but can't find the sadhana. Anyone knows where it can be obtained?
Thanks

There are actually a number of sadhanas associated with this. Do you know which one you are after?

Also, AFAIK, there is a single form and yabyum form. But there are others here that have more knowledge than me about this practice. I'm sure they will comment given time.

From the visualizations, I'm quite sure it was a yabyum form.

I'm guessing this is the Sangtik DorSem, or "Vajrasattva from the Cycle of the Secret Drop."

If it is, Rangjung Yeshe publishes a booklet that contains the sadhana--second on the list here:

If you can read Tibetan, I can point you to some pages at TBRC that include all the texts associated with the practice--sadhana, Tri, Rituals for the dead, etc.

HH Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche wrote a very short sadhana for this. It has the 100 syllable mantra, the short one ending in AH, and the peaceful and wrathful mantras. It was available at the online Gomde shop, but that is not operating at present. If that is the one you want, and you can't get it anywhere else, I can scan it for you.

Chagdud Khadro, here in Rio de Janeiro.

It is a bit confused because in Chagdud Gonpa, the Vajrasattva that is usually done is the Dudjom Tersar one. But since her intention was to provide a foundation for Ngöndro, this one was okay as well.

I would guess it is the Sangthig Dorsem but why don't you just email and ask her? You can probably buy it at a Gomde or in Nepal.

Initiation Vajrasatva

One of the most profound Tibetan Buddhism is the Buddha in meditation and purification Vajrasatva. According Chagdud Rinpoche, "Vajrasatva represents the mind of all the buddhas, and 'Buddha' refers to a completely fault-free and fully consummated the pure qualities of the absolute nature of the mind."

It can be practiced both in the context of Ngondro and as a liturgy itself, in Vajrasatva meditation helps us to recognize and release our most ingrained negative patterns and allow the natural qualities of the mind to surface spontaneously.

White Vajrasattva is restricted

Vajrasattva for Dudjom Tersar is also in the Ngondro booklet. You can also get that through the Tibetan Treasures
website.

Yeah, but I remember Khandro specifically saying it was a Chokling Tersar empowerment, for the terma by Chokgyur Lingpa. I guess I'll wait for her to answer.

We use one at Lhundrup Choling in LA. We use a Jigme Lingpa Shitro and a dzogchen Vajrasattva- blue, in yabyum. Chokling Tersar I'm almost positive. Look on the (unmaintained) website for the contact info and ask Khenpo Sonam about it.
