Nyung Nay Resources

With Di Carroll

The Nyung Nay retreat is a two day intensive practice of Chenresig, the Buddha of Compassion, involving meditating on bodhicitta, visualizing Chenresig, reciting prayers, chanting compassion mantras, and performing prostrations. You start early in the morning taking the 24-hour Mahayana Precepts with the addition of complete fasting (no food or drink) and silence on the second day. Doing even one Nyung Nay for just two days is said to be as effective as three months of other purification practices and is extremely powerful for purifying negative karma and opening the heart to compassion.

As we had to postpone the retreat Di recorded the sadhana with the chantable tunes in English. She also added some notes which will help you to find your way through the sadhana, as from time to time you will have to jump back and forth in the text. The notes will help you to know at which time in the recording you have to be at a certain page. For the recording Di used the Nyung Nay ebook from FPMT. We hope that gives you the resources needed to do one or two sets of Nyung Nay’s on your own, until we can do them together again in 2021 here at Land of Joy.
