Nyungne Compassion Fasting Retreat

This special fasting and purification retreat is performed in conjunction with Thousand-armed Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha
of Compassion. It is very powerful for purifying negative karma,
pacifying strong delusions, receiving blessings, and increasing our
love, compassion and bodhichitta. In this retreat we make many
effective prayers for all suffering to completely cease.
