April 15, 2017 all-day
Jampa Ling Kadampa Buddhist Centre
no cost

This special fasting and purification practice is performed in conjunction with 1000-armed Avalokiteshvara, Buddha of Compassion, together with prostrations and chanted prayers. It 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. This annual special purification and fasting retreat is held at Kadampa Centers around the world to celebrate the anniversary of Buddha’s Enlightenment on April 15th.
