Vajrasattva's status as the "great purifier" is top-of-mind in Tibetan Buddhism, and it is a critical first step in Buddhist practice. It works on the bad karmas and obstructions that obscure our Buddha Nature. It is one of Vajrayana's primary "foundation" practices. Vajrasattva practice, on the other hand, is much more.
Vajrasattva is an early Vajrayana Buddhist practice essential to Shingon Buddhism. Vajradhara manifests as Vajrasattva, a majestic manifestation of Vajradhara.
