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 or if you have received them before, take them at 6:30am at home, for each day you attend.
Free. You may purchase a light lunch for $7 at our World Peace Café if you wish.
