Nyung Ne Retreat – Two Cycles
May 22, 2015 @ 8:00 am - June 27, 2015 @ 5:00 pm
With Dungsey Lhuntrul Dechen Gyurmey Rinpoche
Purifying fasting ritual at Ripa International Center from 22nd to 25th of May 2015 or from 22nd to 27th of May 2015
We are pleased to announce that Dungsey Lhuntrul Dechen Gyumrey Rinpoche will lead our next annual purifying fasting ritual of Nyung Ne practice. Rinpoche is ordained by Kyabje Drupwang Penor Rinpoche and revealed as the reincarnation of the 3rdTamdrin Lhunpo Chogtrul Rinpoche. This practice of Chenrezig (Avalokiteshvara) that can be followed by beginners and more advanced students is made out of a one day and an half fasting period complete with instructions, prayer and moment of silence. It will also be possible to take part to the second cycle of the fasting lasting for another one and and half day.
The spiritual leader of our center, Dungsey Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche, is recommending this practice to us, which will take place during the month of Saga Dawa, as an annual ritual of purification. The Nyung Ne is a traditional Tibetan practice of purifying fasting based on the prayers of Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of compassion. Every year at this time, it is practiced by communities of monasteries in India and Nepal that are under the guidance of Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche and of Lhuntrul Dechen Gyurmey Rinpoche.
We kindly ask you to register as soon as possible, in order to have the best organization possible, and no later than the 8th of May 2015. We thank you in advance for your understanding and your help.
