Sambhogakaya Vajrasattva
« on: August 06, 2015, 05:56:51 pm »

Vajrasattva, the sambhogakaya that Dharmakaya Samantabhadra appears spontaneously, is the concentration of all Buddhas. Since Vajrasattva embodies the hundred Yidams in one, his mantra, the hundred syllable mantra, is the quintessence of the mantras of all the Yidams,thus, the King of all the mantras. Praying to Vajrasattva and chanting the mantra sincerely equals praying to all the Yidams,chanting all the mantras. The great Indian and Tibetan siddhas of the past eliminated their obscurations through practicing this Vajrasattva's hundred syllable mantra. It is said in the Tantra: One hundred thousand recitations in a proper way can completely eliminate all the five crimes with immediate retribution.So it is entitled as the "King of Confession". In the past, while on the path of learning, Vajrasattva made the following aspiration: In future, when I reach complete and perfect buddhahood, may those who have committed the five crimes with immediate retribution, or anyone whose samaya commitments have been impaired, be purified entirely of all their harmful actions and impairments merely by hearing my name, having faith in me, or reciting the hundred syllables, the most majestic of all the secret mantras! Until this is brought about may I remain without awakening! And: May I be present before all those with impairments and breakages of samaya commitments and may I purify all their obscurations!
