About the Retreat

Every April Kadampa Buddhists around the world celebrate Buddha’s Enlightenment Day by engaging in Nyungnay, a special purification practice. This two-day retreat, which is done in conjunction with Thousand-Armed Avalokiteshvara practice, is a powerful method for purifying negative karma of body, speech, and mind, and for pacifying strong delusions.

The essence of the Buddhist path is compassion. In this practice, which involves taking Mahayana precepts conjoined with the practice of prostrations, we purify our mind by meditating extensively on compassion.
