April 13 – 15, 2025

Come celebrate Buddha’s enlightenment day! Nyungne is a beloved practice engaged in every year to honor and remember Buddha’s enlightenment. This special purification and fasting practice is performed together with prayers and prostrations to the 1000-arm Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion. It is very powerful for purifying negativity and strong delusions such as desirous attachment and anger. It is also a special method for receiving blessings and improving our experience of love, compassion, and bodhichitta. Day 1: No breakfast, only 1 meal 12 – 1pm, no food after. You can drink water/ tea for the day. Day 2: You have a choice to do a complete fast on the second day (no food or water) until day 3 at dawn. Or repeat the same as day 1.
