Fasting and Purification motivated by love and compassion
The essence of the Buddhist path is compassion. In this practice, which involves taking Mahayana precepts, making prostrations, and engaging in prayer while meditating extensively on compassion, we purify our mind fully. This is a very powerful way to purify our negative karma of body, speech, and mind, and for pacifying strong delusions such as desirous attachment and hatred. In order to participate in this retreat, you must take precepts Saturday & Sunday morning.
On the first day we will commit to eating only one meal in the day at lunchtime (this meal will be provided: donations welcome). On the second day we will refrain from all food and drink. This fasting practice is motivated by love and compassion for all living beings.
