Purifying our negative actions:
Vajrasattva, Hayagriva, Garuda Empowerment!

with Venerable Phakyab Rinpoche

Vajrasattva’s name translates to Diamond Mind or Thunderbolt Mind.


Buddha VAJRASATTVA is the embodiment of the completely pure mind of all the Buddhas. The empowerment is a special opportunity for us to receive the purifying blessings of this radiant healing Buddha through which we can free our mind from the negativities and wounds of the past.

HAYAGRIVA: Swiftly and joyfully purify our mind and thus profoundly improve our lives, enabling us to actualize our potential for lasting freedom and happiness. In Tibetan Hayagriva is a wrathful manifestation of Avalokiteshvara. There are believed to be 108 forms of Hayagriva. His special ability is to cure diseases, especially skin diseases even as serious as leprosy, which is said to be caused by the Nāgas (water spirits with serpent bodies).

GARUDA: The exact size of the Garuda is uncertain, but its wings are said to have a span of many miles. This may be a poetic exaggeration, but it is also said that when a Garuda’s wings flap, they create hurricane-like winds that darken the sky and blow down houses. A human being is so small compared to a Garuda that a man can hide in the plumage of one without being noticed (Kākātī Jātaka, J.327). They are also capable of tearing up entire banyan trees from their roots and carrying them off.
