Vajrasattva (Tib.: Dorje Sempa) symbolizes the power of purification of all negativism. He has a vajra and a bell in his hands, symbols for method and wisdom and for the feminine and masculine energy. In all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism the purification meditation of Vajrasattva is practiced. The one hundred syllables mantra used for this is known to many meditators and has a beneficial effect on the mind. In many houses today there is a meditative place with a favourite Buddha statue, surrounded by flowers, candles, scents and pictures of loved ones. It is the place where one comes to reflect and meditate every day. Buddha Vajrasattva is the Buddha of the purification. It consists of the practitioner’s meditation. Purifying your actions is essential because ignoring negative actions has irrevocable consequences in this life or afterwards (karma). The meditator therefore uses the four opposing forces: The power of real regret about his/her deeds. The power of positivity through the mantra of Buddha Vajrasattva. The power of promise not to repeat the negative. The power of the object, namely to resort to Buddha, Dharma and Sangha and to awaken the Enlightenment spirit (sk. Bodhicitta or the vow to free all beings from suffering).
