April 15th marks the anniversary of Buddha Shakyamuni demonstrating the attainment of enlightenment in 589BCE

This is an extremely important day in the Buddhist calendar because our actions are 100,000 times more powerful than on other days.

This event is marked by special purification and fasting retreats in Kadampa Buddhist Centers worldwide. Nyungne is based on the practice Drop of Essential Nectar.

This practice, which is done in conjunction with Eleven-faced Avalokiteshvara is very powerful for purifying negative karma of body, speech, and mind, and for pacifying strong delusions such as desirous attachment and hatred.

It is also a special method for receiving blessings and improving our experience of love, compassion, and bodhichitta.

We offer a weekend residential package that includes 2 nights accommodation, supper on Friday and lunch on Saturday and Sunday (optional). Please enquire if you wish to add an extra night to your stay. Non-residential options are also available.
