This practice is done over two days, with the eight Mahyana precepts being taken at the beginning of each day. On the first day it is customary to abstain from all meals apart from lunch at 12.30 pm. On the second day we engage in a complete fast, abstaining from all food and drink for 24 hours.
After taking precepts each day there are three sessions done together with the sadhana Drop of Essential Nectar in which we make prostrations to Eleven-faced Avalokiteshvara.
