Being Pure: The Practice of Vajrasattva


We are very happy to announce the publication of Ringu Tulku’s latest Heart Wisdom book: Being Pure: The Practice of Vajrasattva.

This book contains his teachings on the practice of Vajrasattva, including first Taking Refuge; and explores in some depth what it means to ‘be pure,’ to ‘purify’ or to ‘realise Vajrasattva.’ These teachings were originally given at Bodhicharya Meditation Centre in Sikkim, so contain some of the essence of how these concepts can be explored more deeply in the spaciousness of retreat.

The book also presents the root text by His Holiness 17th Karmapa, which Rinpoche’s teaching is a commentary on. And incorporates calligraphies of Vajrasattva’s mantras by Tashi Mannox and an image of Vajrasattva by Salga. Compiled and edited by Mary Heneghan, with layout and design by Paul O’Connor.

It is available now to pre-order in the Book Shop.

All of Rinpoche’s other books published by Bodhicharya Publications, can also be ordered from the Bodhicharya Publications Book Shop.

Centres (or individuals) may buy 10 or more copies at a 35% reduction, which are ideal to sell at teachings. Bodhicharya Publications is run by volunteers and our skills are offered free of charge, so all purchases help to fund more books and support humanitarian and educational projects under the Bodhicharya umbrella.

We encourage you to get orders in for centres where Rinpoche may be visiting, in good time, as there may be a short delay before despatch due to the number of orders received at this time.
