This special fasting and purification retreat is performed in conjunction with 1000-armed Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion. It is very powerful for pacifying our unpeaceful suffering minds such as desirous attachment and hatred. It is also a special method for receiving blessings and improving our experience of love and compassion. Everyone is welcome. No previous experience necessary.

Please note this practice includes making prostrations - a mental exercise in which we develop faith and respect for enlightened beings. For those who wish to express this mental prostration with a half or full-length physical prostration, comfortable clothing is recommended.
