Inner Purity - Avalokiteshvara Fasting Retreat


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

This special weekend retreat celebrates Buddha’s Enlightenment Day on which all our virtuous actions are multiplied in potency by 100,000.

This is a 2 days retreat at the centre in which each day begins with taking the Eight Mahayana Precepts. When we take Precepts we promise to abstain for 24 hours from negative actions of body, speech and mind and to eat just one meal.
During the retreat it is traditional to have one meal on Saturday and no food or drink at all on Sunday to increase the purification. However it is possible to choose your own level of fasting on
Sunday, eg complete fast, or to drink but not eat, or to eat one meal.
