About the Retreat

This special fasting and purification Day Retreat is performed in conjunction with the meditation practice of Buddha of Compassion: Thousand-armed Avalokiteshvara. Engaging in this retreat is very powerful for purifying negative karma of body, speech and mind and for pacifying strong delusions such as desirous attachment and hatred.

At 6:30am, Mahayana precepts, A Pure Life will be led by Gen Rigden and must be taken at the beginning of the day to engage in the retreat. We abstain from all meals apart from a vegetarian lunch for that day.

Buddhist nun, Gen Kelsang Rigden will lead the practice of Drop of Essential Nectar, each session of the retreat. By learning about this special purification practice, the retreat will give great meaning as the sessions will be self guided with little commentary and silence observed until lunch.
