About the retreat (also known as Nyung Nä, and pronounced nyung-nay)
Feel free to participate in just one day or both days.
We celebrate Buddha’s Enlightenment Day with this special fasting and purification retreat performed in conjunction with Thousand Armed Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion.
This practice is very powerful for pacifying our unpeaceful, suffering minds such as desirous attachment and hatred. It is also a special method for receiving blessings and improving our experience of love and compassion. Kadampa centers worldwide offer this retreat at this time of year and everyone is welcome to participate. Please note this practice includes making prostrations – a mental exercise in which we develop faith and respect for enlightened beings. For those who wish to express this mental prostration with a half or full-length physical prostration, comfortable clothing is recommended.
It is necessary to attend all sessions on a day.
