Fasting & Purification Practice on Chenrezig, Buddha of Compassion

(Unfortunately our female accommodation dormitory is now full,

so we cannot accept any more females for on-site accommodation)

The Nyung Nye meditation practice, based on Chenrezig, the Buddha of Compassion, is a concentrated practice consisting of eight meditation sessions, with praises, prostrations and mantra recitations over 2 days.  The emphasis of this practice is on developing compassion.
The eight Mahayana precepts are taken for the duration of the practice and on the second day, additional vows of not drinking any fluids, eating or talking are observed.
The retreat finishes early on Monday morning in time for a fabulous breakfast and plenty of time to get to work. The benefits of this practice are inestimable.


There is very limited accommodation at Tara Institute at the moment, in a shared room, so please register soon to avoid disappointment.

If you would like to discuss any aspects of the retreat itself, please email
