Nyung Ne Retreat

Nyung Ne retreats celebrate Buddha’s enlightenment, occurring each April.

This is a special retreat celebrating Buddha’s Enlightenment Day that combines fasting and prostrations as a powerful purifying method for negative karma. We make prayers and beautiful offerings to 1000-armed Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion, in three sessions a day. Each day you participate, you are required to take the eight Mahayana Precepts at in an early-morning session, which are one-day vows emphasizing simplicity and contentment.

See our April calendar for Nyung Ne Retreat times.
