Throughout this life we experience many problems and difficulties. Generally we blame all of this on other people and on external situations and conditions. But in reality all our problems and difficulties in finding the happiness we long for arises from the negativities we ourselves have created in this and previous lives.
As a result of this accumulated negative karma we experience problems and suffering; face difficulties in fulfilling our wishes for happiness, and find it difficult to progress towards enlightenment.
By receiving the blessings of Vajrasattva, the Buddha of Purification we can purify this previously accumulated negative karma and destroy the obstacles that prevent us achieving real happiness and diminish our ability to give happiness to others.
