Diamond Mind Empowerment given bei Jigme Rinpoche

Lama Jigme Rinpoche gave the second of three consecutive empowerments at this year’s Summer Course today, that into one of the most important meditation aspects for practitioners of Diamond Way Buddhism – Diamond Mind (Skt. Vajrasattva; Tib. Dorje Sempa), united with his consort Vajragarvi (Tib. Dorje Nyema).

The meditation on Diamond Mind is one of the most powerful methods for purifying imprints in the subconscious that were caused by harmful actions in this and former lives. Through this method, karmic seeds can be purified before they ripen in the form of negative experiences.

Karma means cause and effect, not fate. Everyone is responsible for his or her own life and shapes it through thoughts, words and actions. This understanding makes it possible to consciously generate positive impressions in mind, which lead to happiness and help avoid future suffering.

This meditation practice is part of the Four Preliminary Practices in Vajrayana Buddhism. It is said that a practitioner can achieve enlightenment solely by practicing and completing these meditations. They are the preparation for the following Mahamudra or Guru Yoga practices.
