4-20 November 2023




Led by Lama Trinley.

To participate in the practice the Chenrezig empowerment is required.

Lama Rinchen will give 1000-Armed Chenrezig empowerment on the 3rd of November (Friday) at 7 p.m.

Nyungne is a practice of Yidam in kriya tantra tradition. It purifies a lot of negative karma in a short time. It is said that a clear practice of one Nyungne closes the gates to being reborn in lower realms. The same, clear practice of eight Nyungne leads to rebirth in the Pure Land of Dewachen.

Nyungne is a fasting meditation retreat combined with the intensive practice of 1000-Armed Chenrezig. First day only two, vegetarian meals may be eaten and during the second day completely nothing may be eaten or drunk. During the time of two days retreat it is obligatory to adhere to Mahayana sojong vows.
