Find your diamond being with the 100 Syllable Mantra – Vajra Sattva transcription

The 100 Syllable Mantra, chanted formally from memory during the Vajra Sattva Purification Practice, is basically a confessional exercise and should only be done after completing the prayers said prior to meditation. The practice involves reviewing one’s imperfections, the faults and failings of the pain body, all rooted in false identification with the mind stream. Through this ancient mantra we shift away from falsehoods toward the Truth of our divine light body, heal separation anxiety and bring union to Self.

Union, a direct translation of the Sanskrit word yoga, is the ultimate aim of all yogic practice.
