Nyungna: Compassion Fasting Retreat

Wednesday April 11 & Thursday April 12

We can 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.

Sessions times are

6:30 – 8am
10 – 11:15am
4 – 5:30pm

Cost is $5/session
$10/ day
$15/ entire retreat
Everyone is Welcome
