About this Event

Nyungnay Purification Retreat

Saturday, April 17 – Sunday, April 18

Self-guided sessions

Join us on April 17-18 for Nyungne, a special purification retreat. This retreat is held by Kadampa Centers worldwide in conjunction with Buddha's Enlightenment day, which is celebrated on April 15.

The practice of Nyungnay is a fasting retreat. Through fasting we can understand the sufferings of others and increase our compassion for them, as well as purify our own negative karma. This practice is very powerful for purifying negative karma of body, speech and mind, and for pacifying strong delusions such as desirous attachment and hatred. It is also a special method for receiving blessings and improving our experience of love, compassion and bodhichitta.

On the first day of the retreat we abstain from all meals except for a vegetarian lunch and drink only water. On the second day we abstain from all food and drink for twenty-four hours. Participants may attend both days of the retreat or they may attend on Saturday only, depending on their abilities and preferences.

**In order to take the vows necessary to participate in the retreat, students must attend the 7am session.
