Nyungne Purifying Ritual Practice

This special fasting and purification retreat is performed in conjunction with Thousand-armed Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion. It is very powerful for purifying negative karma, pacifying strong delusions, receiving blessings, and increasing our love, compassion and Bodhichitta.

In this retreat we make many effective prayers for all suffering to completely cease. Everyone is welcome to join this special retreat.
