The fourth month of the Tibetan Buddhist calendar is called Saka Dawa. The full moon day (15th day) of the fourth month marks the holiest day in Tibetan Buddhism: the Buddhas Conception, Enlightenment, and parting into Nirvana. It is auspicious to perform meritorious activities on this specific day. The merit generated from these virtuous activities increases 10 million fold. This year, we will celebrate Saka Dawa on June 3rd and 4th, led by Venerable Khenpo Jampa Rinpoche. The practice for this retreat is the 1,000-Armed Chenrezi.

Participants may take Nyung Nye vows for increased merit. In Tibetan, the word Nyung means less. Nye means remaining. This means that we reduce our negativity and, ideally, eliminate it entirely. Nyung Nye is a practice of fasting and purification. Each morning, one may take vows by which to abide for the whole day. On the first day, in accordance with a partial fast, a vegetarian lunch is eaten at noon as the only meal, though liquids can be consumed the rest of the day. On the second day, no food or drink at all is consumed*. In addition, on the second day, there is no talking except for the recitation of the practice.
