Amitayus Kadampa Buddhist Center says
Nyungne is a special fasting and purification retreat which is done in conjunction with the Buddha of Compassion spiritual practice. Through fasting we can understand the sufferings of others and increase our compassion for them, as well as purify our own negative karma. On the first day of the retreat we abstain from all meals except for a vegetarian lunch and drink only water. On the second day we abstain from all food and drink for twenty-four hours. Students may attend both days of the retreat or they may attend on Saturday only, depending on their abilities and preferences. For questions, please contact the Education Program Coordinator at epcamitayus@gmail.com or 267-702-3817.

Students should avoid wearing perfume, makeup, and jewelry during this retreat.

Session times for both days:
7:00am-7:30am: Precepts – The Eight Mahayana Vows
