The Meaning of the Mantra
Note: This is not a literal translation of the individual Sanskrit words of the mantra.
You, Vajrasattva, have generated the holy mind according to your samaya. Your holy mind is enriched with the simultaneously-born holy actions of liberating transmigratory beings from samsara. Whatever happiness and suffering, good and bad, happens to me, by my pleasing the holy mind, never give me up and guide me. Please stabilize the realizations of the paths and bhumis, including the happiness of the upper realms, actualize all actions and the common and sublime realizations, and make the glory of the five wisdoms abide in my heart.

Vajrasattva’s name translates to Diamond Being or Thunderbolt Being.

the Vajrasattva mantra is regarded as having the ability to purify karma, bring peace, and cause enlightened activity in general.
