Teaching on working with Heruka Vajrasattva to purify our negative karma.
A prayer will be done for the deceased as well as the living for purification related to Vajrasattva.
Heruka Vajrasattva is a yab-yum form of Vajrasattva used in Kalachakra, the highest yoga tantra. In order to practice Heruka Vajrasattva, you do not need to receive empowerment because you are not imagining yourself as the deity, but imagining the deity above your head. Nevertheless, while it is okay to do the preliminaries without receiving the Vajrasattva empowerment, it is even better if you do receive one. Khentrul Rinpoche will bestow the Heruka Vajrasattva blessing (Jenang) which is the form of empowerment needed for this practice.
In this practice, we use the wisdom-deity Vajrasattva as support for dissolving our gross self-grasping. Through various visualizations and the recitation of mantra, we are reminded of the innate purity of our mind and that everything we identify with is merely an imputed reality with no inherent existence. When used as a meditation on emptiness, this practice leads to a conceptual realization of the selflessness of persons.
