Hello Everyone! I just wanted to inform how many mantras Im doing. Since the day that started Im doing 2 malas of the 100 syllable mantra daily, at least. Im not focusing much on the short mantra and really only done 100 malas of the short mantra. So to sum up since November 1st to November 20. That would be
2 * 20 = 40 * 108 = 4,320 Long mantras + 10,800 short mantras equals 15,120 Vajrasattva mantras overall. Please post your amount or if you are just reading now for the first time and you are interested please join. The total is 5 million Vajrasattva mantras , Long, short, they all count the same. Thanks to everyone! Wish all well! Thank you again. Peace.

Hey Guys! Thank you for contributing Kirt. Punya I was using that website for people to see a way to do the practice of Vajrasattva, that's all. In the links of that page you are given different options of how to do the Vajrasattva practice. This acummulation is not the same organization. It was my searching for people that were doing a Vajrasattva mantra accumulation so I could join in. But the only one I found was 4 years back, so I decided to initiate a Vajrasattva accumulation. If anyone is interested do not feel down because the acccumulation started a month back. It's 5 million mantras so there is a lot more to be done. Please join, I will be gratefull if more people joined.
As for this week, I did 3 malas daily of Long Vajrasattva mantra and 200 malas of short Vajrasattva mantra. I have a lot of time in my hands so don't be discouraged if you think you can not do the same amount. But if you are a monk or on a retreat like me you tend to have time.
This weeks practice:
Total of Long Vajrasattva mantras: 1,986
Short Vajrasattva mantra: 21,600
Total of mantras together: 23,586

Total since begginning till now : 23,586 + 21,600 = 45,186
Total of group together: 46,186 (Thank you Kirt!)

If you are reading this and not sure, join in do whatever you can the importance is that we all join together as one!

Peace,
Pema Wang Gyan

Hello Everyone! Sorry I had not posted since the 20th of December but I am still going at it! hahaha... I will like to thank "D" for motivating me to still post the group's development. Sometimes we loose faith or motivation, but there comes someone who establishes your determination to spread motivation to everyone to practice "the way". There is nothing more important than spiritual practice, really it is the only attribute we have that death does not take away. So to everyone, please join in the accumulation. Our karma follows us and determines our own destiny. To practice Vajrasattva, we are purifying our negative karma that is there since the beginning of our own existence since beginningless time. Even though we at the moment probably are not suffering much, we never know what the future beholds. It is our own ignorance that tells us: "I don't need to purify my negative karma, right now Im just fine." And we don't remember what we did in our past lives to say: "I have always been compasionate and loving and have not caused any suffering to anyone." This is why this practice is so essential in our daily life. But this is my opinion, and what I have experienced in my own lifetime, so I hope this motivates someone to join. Thank you to everyone!

Since 20th of December till today ( 10th of January, 2014)

Long mantra total: 1,890 mantras ( 100 syllable mantra )
Short mantra total: 10,800 mantras ( short mantra) Om Vajra Sattva Hung
"D's long mantra total: 239 mantras (100 syllable mantra )
"D's short mantra total: 1,716 ( short mantra )

Total group mantra since 20th December 2013 till 10th January 2014: 14,645 mantras (long and short together, they count the same)

Total since beginning of Accumulation: 60,917 + 14,645 = 75,562 mantras

Thank you for everyone adding their numbers ("K", "D")

Anyone interested please join in this wonderful practice. Wish all the best!
Thank you!

I am focused on other accumulations right now but I always
do a minimum of 21 100-syllable mantras a day.
Is it appropriate to include them in your count?

Dear all,
Does one need an initiation for a Vajrasattva mantra -- the short one & the long one?

Hello everyone, Im sorry to say that I haven't received the group's accumulation for this week. I have mine written but, I'll wait until someone shows up and contributes. It doesn't matte how many mantras , the importance is that we as a group do it together with the wish for the happiness of all beings. I'll post when I receive the groups accumulation and I'll keep on with my personal goal regardless but I will love to share with others. Please if you are reading this and only do three mantras daily, put them on paper and at the end of the week send me a message or post it on the forum. Thank's to everyone!



May all beings be purified completely of their negative karma from beginningless time , please Vajrasattva purify all their obscuration and impurities. Once completely purified, instantly may they awaken in the state of supreme Bliss and Enlightment. So they can be happy for all eternity and at all times may they be full of joy and experience the states of supreme bliss forever!!!

Thank you!!

Hello guys, thank's for everyone of the group joining. Please feel free to join, no matter how many mantras you do. The importance is that we do it together! Send me a message or post your mantras.

This week's mantras (long and short) are : 1,155 Vajrasattva mantras!!

The total of the group since the beginning to this day is : 103,339 mantras (long and short)

The importance of this practice is that Vajrasattva has the power of purifying and healing. Vajrasattva purifies negative karma and our obscurations. Heals illnesses both mental and physical.
Doing this practice alone can liberate us of our past life's negative karma that hasn't yet flourished and helping us purify our mind's obscurations!!

All this may we do it in the intention of being able to benefit each and every motherly being in samsara in the future. May all beings be full of bliss always!!

thank you all!

best wishes,

Pema Wangyal
