千手觀音紐涅(Nyungne)淨修 with Lama Jampa March 2nd ~ 6th, 2019
The Tibetan Buddhist practice of Nyungne is a profound two-and-a-half-day practice. This can be repeated many times and each cycle is called a pair. This retreat will have two pairs. The Sojong vow (八關齋戒) needs to be taken for any full-day practice. The second and fourth day will be devoted to complete silence and fasting. Nyungne is very effective in nurturing of compassion, purification of negative karma and healing of illness. It is highly recommended by H.H. Karmapa.
During this retreat, only vegetarian meals will be served. No meals after 2pm. During the fasting days you will have no drink either. If you have special medical conditions in concern please email us before registration.
