Event description

Description


The Venerable Wangchen Rinpoche will kindly bestow the Thousand-Armed Chenrezig empowerment on July 18, give teaching and explanation of the practice on July 19, and conduct 3 rounds of Nyungne practice from July 22 to July 28.


Wangchen Rinpoche is a student of Dorje Chang Kalu Rinpoche, with whom he lived and traveled from an early age, and is a master practitioner of Nyungne. He is the author of Buddhist Fasting Practice: The Nyungne Method of Thousand-Armed Chenrezig.


Nyungne is a profound, two-and-a-half-day practice, a length of time especially helpful for people whose schedules cannot accommodate long-term retreat. It involves the keeping of strict vows; the second day is devoted to complete silence and fasting. The meditation centers on the recitations, mantras, and guided visualizations of the Thousand-Armed Chenrezig, the embodiment of all the buddhas’ loving-kindness and compassion. Translated as “abiding in the fast,” Nyungne is said to be effective in the healing of illness, the nurturing of compassion, and the purification of negative karma.
