*Note: Anyone wishing to join any sessions of the retreat is required to take precepts on the day.

This special fasting and purification practice is very powerful for purifying negative karma of body, speech, and mind, and for pacifying strong delusions such as desirous attachment and hatred. It is also a special method for receiving blessings and improving our experience of love, compassion, and bodhichitta.

Resident Teacher, Kadam Ai Peng McBretney will grant precepts on the day at the centre at 6.30am.

Everyone is welcome to come along to one or more sessions.
