Description

Saturday April 13 | 6:30am-4pm

Each year to celebrate Buddha’s Enlightenment Day on April 15th, Kadampas around the world engage in Nyungnay, a special purification practice. This retreat, which is done in conjunction with Thousand-Armed Avalokiteshvara, is very powerful for purifying the negative karma of body, speech, and mind, and pacifying strong delusions such as desirous attachment and hatred. In this practice, which involves taking Mahayana precepts and the practice of prostrations, we purify our mind and strengthen our compassion.

Saturday, April 13th (Partial Fast)
6:30am Precepts (*Very helpful to attend this session to increase purification in the subsequent sessions.)
