On July 23rd from 8 AM to 5 PM, Lama Phurbu Tashi Rinpoche, will lead a retreat to study the practice of Nyungne.  We will not be performing the practice on this date, but rather we will be studying and preparing for future Nyungne practices.


Nyungne is the two-day fasting practice of the thousand-armed Chenrezig, a deeply profound and powerful practice of purification. There are reports of miraculous outcomes from the practice. It involves taking one meal on the first day, and then no eating, drinking, or speaking on the second day. The ritual practice includes prostrations, mantra recitation, and meditation.  It is a rare opportunity to take part in one of the most remarkable practices that help to overcome one’s own future pain and suffering and that of all other sentient beings in the world.


Coffee and tea will be provided during breaks. Lunch is potluck, so please bring your favorite vegetarian dish.


If you have any questions, please email us at info@gampopacenter.com.


We hope to see you there!
