Who is Buddha Vajrasattva?

Buddha taught many different methods to purify non-virtuous actions, downfalls, and broken commitments, but the supreme method is the practice of meditation and recitation of Vajrasattva. This practice is a scientific method to purify our mind and transform it from an impure mind into a pure mind using Tantric technology.” – Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, The Oral Instructions of Mahamudra

Buddha Vajrasattva is the purified consciousness of all Buddhas and his special function is to purify our minds. By drawing close to and relying sincerely on Buddha Vajrasattva, we can purify ourselves and become a completely pure being, where we will experience permanent freedom and inner peace, and there will be no further basis for us to experience any kind of pain or suffering.
