Nyungne Retreat

Everyone is welcome to participate in Nyungne practice as long as you take the Refuge and Eight Precepts vows and receive the empowerment to do the 1,000-Armed Chenrezig practice. Each session consists of a full 2 days of practice- participants arrive the afternoon/evening prior to beginning the 2 days of practice, and conclude early morning on the third day. Nyungne is a two day fasting practice with prayer, mantra recitation, and prostrations. The Eight Precepts Vow, or Mahayana Restoring and Purifying Ordination, is taken each morning. On the first day, only one vegetarian meal is eaten. On the second day, no food or drink is taken and everyone is silent. The practice ends early in the morning of the third day at which time the fast is broken. 

 

An 8 Nyungne Retreat therefore is a 16 day retreat, a 25 Nyungne Retreat is a 50 day retreat. Participants are encouraged to attend as many sessions as possible with the understanding and commitment to completing each session (2 days) they are participating in and abiding by The Eight Precepts Vow.
