NYUNGNAY FASTING & PURIFICATION RETREAT

Sunday, April 15

KMC San Francisco
3324 17th Street
San Francisco, CA 94110

This special fasting and purification practice is performed in conjunction with Eleven-faced Avalokiteshvara. It is very powerful for purifying negative karma of body, speech and mind, and for pacifying strong delusions such as desirous attachment and hatred. It is also a special method for receiving blessings and improving our experience of love, compassion and bodhichitta.

Teaching with precepts on Saturday only, $10
Nyungnay Retreat sessions – Free

This practice starts by taking the eight Mahayana precepts according to the prayers entitled A Pure Life at the beginning of the day. On the first day it is customary to abstain from all meals apart from lunch. On the second day, we engage in a complete fast, abstaining from all food and drink for 24 hours. Those unable to engage in the 2nd day complete fast, can participate provided they have taken Precepts that morning and abstain from all meals except lunch.
