Samayavajra Jenang

Samayavajra (Tib. Damtsig Dorje Depa) is the essence of the holy mind of all the infinite Victorious Ones. This deity belongs to the mandala of Guhyasamaja tantra, the “secret Assembly”—the gathering of 32 deities. This particular practice purifies degenerated commitments and vows, and particularly purifies all transgressions in the relationship with one’s spiritual guide. It is also one of the nine preliminary practices in the Gelug tradition.

In order to do confession with the remedy of the four powers perfectly, practice either Samayavajra or Vajrasattva meditation and recitation. When the lineage lamas of lamrim such as Kachen Yeshe Gyaltsen did the Lama Chöpa practice, they did Samayavajra one day and Vajrasattva the next. You can also do the four particular initiations with Vajrasattva and Samayavajra. Samayavajra is a powerful purification practice, particularly purifying negative karmas accumulated in the relationship with the guru.—Lama Zopa Rinpoche

Commitments:  The bodhisattva vow will be given. Wishing vow can be taken if one is not ready to take on the bodhisattva vow. The Bodhisattva Vow booklet is available in booklet form or pdf format.

Prerequisites:  One is a Buddhist, ie has taken refuge in the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, and has a good foundation in the  lam rim and the sutra path (at least having some experience of renunciation, bodhicitta, and wisdom understanding emptiness).

This jenang can be take as a blessing.
