(with Ven. Tendar)
What are Nyung Näe’s?
The Nyung Näe retreat is a two-day intensive practice that includes taking the 24-hour Mahayana precepts with the addition of complete fasting and silence on the second day. Doing even one Nyung Näe or “abiding in retreat” for just two days is said to be as effective as three months of other purification practices and is extremely powerful for healing illness, purifying negative karma, and opening the heart to compassion. You can read more here about Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s advice on doing Nyung-Näes.
This Nyung-Näe will be led by Ven. Tendar, a senior monk with extensive experience in leading Nyung-Näes. It is not necessary to have an initiation to participate and everyone with faith in the Buddha and in Buddhist practice is welcome to participate.
Preferably one should participate in the entire Nyung-Naë but for those who have done the practice before and therefore don’t need much instruction, it is possible to participate partly (one or more sessions if you have no possibilities to do the whole Nyung-Naë). For those participating in the entire Nyung-Näe, it is recommended that you bring a sleeping bag and stay overnight in the center (we’ll sleep in the meditation room/gompa).
There is no set price to participate, but a suggested donation to the center is 250 kr. to cover expenses and please also provide the teacher with a donation.
If you plan to participate in full or partially, or if you have any questions, please contact coordinator Shaun Rømer at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 60 64 83 26.
