Nyungnay Purifying Ritual Practice | Apr 14 & 15

Free – £35.00

Nyungnay Purifying Ritual Practice

A Special Fasting Retreat

April 14 & 15

About this Retreat

Nyungnay is one of our most precious Kadampa Dharma jewels and as a centre practice it comes around just once a year – on Buddha’s Enlightenment Day. We can spend two days with Thousand-armed (eleven-faced) Avalokiteshvara – ‘Mahakaruna’ – the nature of our Guru’s great compassion, making exquisite offerings, praises and prostrations and thereby accumulate huge merit, purify vast negativity for ourself and others and receive the most powerful blessings to propel ourself swiftly along our path to enlightenment.

Wrapped within the practice of Mahayana Precepts, it involves fasting and making three sessions of prostrations, with the sadhana Drop of Essential Nectar, over two days. Usually the second day is accompanied by a full fast, although recommended, this is not compulsory. 

* Due to limited space, pre-booking is essential for this event.
