Nyungnay Purification Retreat | 12 – 14 April | Introduction with Gen-la Kelsang Kunsang

On this special retreat we will spend two days with thousand-armed (eleven-faced) Avalokiteshvara – ‘Mahakaruna’ – the nature of our Guru’s great compassion. This will involve making exquisite offerings, praises and prostrations and thereby accumulating huge merit, purifying vast negativity for ourself and others and receiving the most powerful blessing to propel ourself swiftly along our path to enlightenment.

Practiced in conjunction with Mahayana Precepts, Nyungnay 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.
