Nyungne: Drop of Essential Nectar

Buddha’s Enlightenment Day is marked by special purification and fasting retreats in Kadampa Buddhist Centers worldwide. This practice is done in conjunction with prayers to the Buddha of Compassion. It is very powerful for purifying negative karma and pacifying strong delusions such as attachment and hatred. Through this practice, we can also receive blessings and improve our experience of love and compassion. On both days of the retreat, we will meet in the morning to receive instructions from the Resident Teacher and take special vows for the day which include fasting for periods of time. Everyone is welcome to attend the retreat sessions providing that they have attended the morning instruction.
