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.
Nyungnay Fasting Retreat Sessions is a specially prepared audio recording and includes two practices, Drop of Essential Nectar and A Pure Life. The recording has been arranged in accordance with the Nyungnay retreat format followed at Manjushri Kadampa Meditation Centre.
This special audio recording includes two sadhana practices, Drop of Essential Nectar and A Pure Life. The first is a special purification practice performed in conjunction with Eleven-faced (or Thousand-armed) Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion. This is done annually at Kadampa Buddhist centres throughout the world in a two-day retreat – called the Nyungnay Purifying Ritual Practice – to celebrate Buddha’s Enlightenment Day. The second is the practice of taking and keeping the eight Mahayana precepts, which is often done on the 15th day of each month in Kadampa Buddhist centres around the world.
A complete explanation of each practice can be found in the sadhana booklets, A Pure Life and Drop of Essential Nectar, also available from Tharpa Publications.
*If you are new to this retreat, there are 3 retreat session per day and the prayer sequence is slightly different for each session.
