NYUNGNAY PURIFYING RITUAL PRACTICE
Fri 14 & Sat 15 April
6.30am – 4.30pm
A special fasting retreat celebrating Buddha’s Enlightenment Day
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 Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of 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 blessing 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 strongly recommended, this is not compulsory.
Everyone is welcome to join us for this special retreat.
It is necessary to take Mahayana Precepts each morning at 6.30am to be able to engage in retreat sessions. (this does not include the Offering to the Spiritaul Guide puja on Saturday evening.)
