Nyung-nay banner

November 3rd – 10th
4 sets of Nyung-Nays
(Empowerment – November 2nd | Chenrezig Tsog – November 11th)

During this retreat, by taking the eight precepts (avoiding killing, stealing, sex, lying, intoxication, using high seats or beds, eating after noon, wearing perfume or jewelry), the causes for experiencing happiness in this and future lives, and for ultimately attaining enlightenment, are created. And by reciting the mantra of Chenrezig and offering prostrations, every conceivable kind of negative action can be purified, and all favorable conditions for spiritual growth are reinforced.

If you have not received the Kusum Gongdu Avalokiteshvara (Tib. Chenrezig) empowerment, please make a note of that on your online registration form. 

In the late afternoon on Thursday, November 2nd, Lama Padma will bestow empowerment, followed by a teaching and explanation of the practice. The first set begins Friday, November 3rd. Practice begins before dawn, so plan on arriving the night before the first set you will be attending. Fasting ends at dawn on Saturday, November 11th, followed by Chenrezig tsog. The retreat concludes late morning.
