TIME: 7:00 AM – 8:15 PM

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.  During this retreat we abstain from all meals except for a vegetarian lunch and drink only water throughout the day.

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