Prepare your mind for deeper meditations and more stable understanding
Buddhists love retreats! Without changing your normal life, you can engage in retreat. Learn the different meditations with a practice you can continue at home.
Nyungnay is one of our most precious Kadampa dharma jewels and as a centre practice it comes around just once a year – on Buddha’s Enlightenment Day – April 15.
We spend two days with thousand-armed (eleven-faced) Avalokiteshvara – ‘Mahakaruna’ – the nature of our Guru’s great compassion, making exquisite offerings, praises and prostrations and thereby accumulate huge merit, purify vast negativity for ourself and others and receive the most powerful blessing to propel ourself swiftly along our path to enlightenment.
Wrapped within the practice of Mahayana Precepts, it involves fasting and making three sessions of prostrations, with the sadhana ‘Drop of Essential Nectar,’ over two days. Usually the second day is accompanied by a full fast, although strongly recommended, this is not compulsory.
Everyone is welcome to join us for this special retreat within their own capacity.
Please reach out if you have any questions. We’re happy to help!
