Compassion Fasting Retreat

April 15th marks the anniversary of Buddha Shakyamuni demonstrating the attainment of enlightenment in 589 B.C.E. This is an extremely important day in the Buddhist calendar because our actions are 100,000 times more powerful than on other days. Kadampa Buddhists celebrate with a special purification and fasting retreat that is done in Kadampa Buddhist Centers worldwide. It is very powerful for purifying negative karma of body, speech, and mind, and for pacifying strong delusions such as desirous attachment and hatred. April 6 and 7 Session 1 – 6:30am – 8am Session 2 – 10:30am – 12pm Session 3 – 3-4:30pm
