It is with great joy to offer the first Nyung Nay retreat at Ocean of Compassion led by Venerable Lhundub Chodron. The Nyung Nay will occur during Lhabab Duchen, one of the four great holy days of the Tibetan calendar where merits are multiplied by 100 million times.
Nyung Nay (or "fasting retreat" in English) is a Vajrayana practice from the kriya ("action") class of tantra. It is a powerful practice to develop compassion and bodhichitta — the mind that strives for enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. It is also a quick and effective method to purify negativities and collect merit. Meditators of the past have been known to purify such diseases as leprosy through this practice.
Nyung Nay is a profound two-day practice relating to Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion.
