The Nyungne retreat is a Tibetan Buddhist meditation practice based on the Buddha of Compassion known as Thousand-Armed Chenrezig. It is designed to purify negative karma and accumulate merit and wisdom by continuously mingling the mind with compassion, the speech with mantra, and the body with perfect morality. In this way, we will begin to purify and heal ourselves and others.
The living lineage of Nyungne began in India with Jomo Gelongma Palmo, one of the most famous female masters in Buddhist history. It came to Tibet around the 12th century, and the practice continues to flourish today. It is a profound and powerful practice of silence, fasting, and purification.
