Retreat sessions at 6:30am (precepts)***,
8am, 10:30am, 2pm
This annual fasting and purification retreat, performed in conjunction with a practice of the Buddha of Compassion, is a powerful way to purify negative karma of body, speech, and mind, and to pacify strong delusions such as hatred and attachment. It is also a special method for receiving blessings and improving our experience of love,
compassion, and bodhichitta. You can choose to participate in one or both days: the first day of this retreat is a partial fast (eating only lunch), and the second day is either a partial or complete fast.
***To participate in this retreat, you must come to the 6:30 am session to receive Mahayana Precepts for each day you attend, or if you have received them before, take them at 6:30am at home.
Free. You may purchase a lunch suitable for precepts for $7 at our World Peace Café if you wish.
