Every year, practitioners quietly complete retreats and commitments and engage in acts of great devotion. Mandala would like to recognize the amazing practice activities of FPMT students and REJOICE!
Following up on the success of last year’s round of 108 nyung näs at Institut Vajra Yogini (IVY), the French center has begun a second round. Six people intend to do the full 108 nyung näs that started at IVY on November 18, 2012. Rinpoche’s offer to sponsor up to 10 people willing to do 100 nyung näs has made it possible for them to commit for the whole seven months of intense practice.
The nyung näs are open to anyone who wishes to join. Some people come for eight nyung näs, some for one, some for just one session. Last year for the first round of 108 nyung näs, more than 100 people joined at one point or another, totalling about 1,000 nyung näs at the end of the seven months.
This year, we hope to accumulate at least 2,000 nyung näs. It is great to have such an opportunity to rejoice! Wherever you are in the world, any day and anytime until the end of June 2013, you can visualize the retreatants at Institut Vajra Yogini, generating bodhichitta, prostrating, fasting, accumulating mantras, praying for peace, and you can rejoice in that intense purification and accumulation of merit.
To learn more or offer to sponsor a retreatant, contact Institut Vajra Yogini.
