A Purifying Fasting Retreat
Sunday, April 14
7am – 5:30pm


To celebrate Buddha’s attainment of enlightenment, during the annual Spring compassion and fasting purification retreat, we open our hearts with joy and humility to receive the purifying blessings of 1000-Armed Avalokiteshvara.

Everyone is welcome to experience this profound and blessed practice; no experience necessary!

Through fasting, chanting beautiful prayers, and making offerings, prostrations and requests, we are guided to draw close to Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion.

We will be fasting before and after lunch (each according to their own capacity). To respect those fasting, kindly no food inside the Center before or after lunch.

To attend sessions 1, 2, or 3 you must have taken precepts at 7am.
