Saka Dawa Triple Nyungne
Saturday, May 27 to Friday, June 2; Orientation Friday May 26
You may participate in one, two, or all three Nyungnes.
The Nyungne retreat is a Tibetan Buddhist practice designed to purify negative karma and accumulate merit and wisdom. It involves two and a half days of practice with the strict keeping of vows (a day and a half of complete fasting from food and drink), the generation of the Bodhisattva attitude, and the recitation of the sadhana of the 1000-arm form of Chenrezik, Bodhisattva of compassion.
First-time Nyungne participants MUST attend an orientation class the Sunday before the Nyungne starts.
