Nyungne Fasten-Ritual 

des Tausendarmigen Chenrezig    

                                       mit Lama Rinchen

Nyungne ist eine Yidam-Praxis der Kriya-Tantra-Tradition und hilft, viel negatives Karma in kurzer Zeit zu reinigen. Es heißt, dass die reine Praxis eines Nyungne die Tore zu Wiedergeburt in niederen Bereichen schließt, und das reine Vollenden von 8 Nyungnes zu einer Wiedergeburt im Reinen Land Dewachen führt.
Außerdem ist das Nyungne eine Vajrayana-Praxis zur Heilung des Körpers.

Das Nyunge-Fastenritual jährlich einmal durchzuführen wurde uns vom Ehrwürdigen Tenga Rinpoche sehr ans Herz gelegt, und wir freuen uns sehr, dass es bereits Ende Oktober unter Lama Rinchen`s Leitung zum ersten Mal durchführen zu können.
Nyungne ist ein Fasten-Ritual des Tausendarmigen Avalokiteshwara: Es gibt täglich vier Sitzungen, alles zusammen ungefähr täglich 10 Stunden Praxiszeit. Am ersten Tag gibt es eine strikt vegetarische Mahlzeit (kein Fleisch, keine Eier und auch keine Zwiebel, kein Knoblauch, keine Radieschen, kein Rettich, kein Lauch, kein Schnittlauch, keine Bohnen oder Erbsen), während am zweiten Tag weder gegessen noch getrunken wird.
Während des Zwei-Tage-Rituals müssen 8 Gelübde strikt eingehalten werden: Die Teilnehmer nehmen Abstand davon, 1) zu töten, 2) zu stehlen, 3) zu lügen 4) man lebt zölibatär, also ohne sexuelle Aktivitäten, 5) man enthält sich des Alkohols, man raucht keine Zigaretten, nimmt keinerlei Drogen, 6) man verwendet keinerlei Parfums, trägt weder Make-up noch Schmuck, man enthält sich jeder Art von Unterhaltung wie Singen, Musik Machen, Tanzen und ähnliches, 7) man isst nicht zu den nicht-vorgesehenen Zeiten und 8) man sitzt nicht auf hohen Sitzen.

Um teilnehmen zu können, ist eine Einweihung in den Tausend-Armigen Chenrezig oder eine andere Chenrezig-Ermächtigung nötig. (Wird am Freitag gegeben.)

AN OVERVIEW

The Nyungne Retreat is a Tibetan Buddhist practice designed to purify negative karma and accumulate merit and wisdom. It involves two and a half days of practice centering on the strict keeping of vows (including a day and a half of complete fasting from food and drink); the generation of the Bodhisattva attitude; and the recitation of the sadhana (meditation practice) of the 1000-arm form of Chenrezig, Bodhisattva of compassion. Additional commitments include strict silence and abstinence from intimate contact.

The Nyungne Retreat is comprehensive in that it combines practice methods from all three Yanas, or Vehicles, of Buddhism. The vows reflect the rigorous discipline of the Common Vehicle, the generation of the Enlightened Attitude reflects the Greater Vehicle, and the actual practice of 1000-Armed Chenrezik reflects the Vehicle of Secret Mantra.

Persons who are new to Nyungne practice are urged to attend the Friday, August 15th introductory talk by Lama Dudjom Dorjee, to stay that evening, and to participate in the Nyungne beginning early on Saturday, August 16th .

Participants are encouraged to stay at the Center. Driving is NOT recommended. The Nyungne is structured such that a participant who works Monday - Friday need not take any time off work.

Anyone who has taken Refuge may participate in the practice, and anyone who wishes may sit in and observe or meditate quietly.

The Nyungne Retreat is said to be a powerful means of purifying the negative karma that causes rebirth in lower realms of existence. It is said that to successfully complete even one Nyungne Retreat (that is, keeping all the vows and participating in all the meditations) closes the gates to one's rebirth in the lower realms.

This practice is quite challenging. It should only be undertaken by those who have made a firm commitment to themselves to see it through. Anyone needing to be excused from a particular vow needs to get approval from the Lama.

Excerpt from 'THE PRACTICE OF NYUNGNE',
a talk given by Khenpo Karthar Rinpoche:

    "There is great benefit in this Nyungne practice in that one is doing the practice of all the three yanas, Hinayana, Mahayana, Vajrayana. If one can commit oneself to such a practice, this practice alone could be one's only tool or method necessary towards the attainment of enlightenment. So it is a very profound and beneficial practice.

    This Nyungne practice, taking the precepts and the commitments from an unbroken lineage, is important for one. The transmission from this unbroken lineage of practitioners is given to the participants of the retreat. That is very important. From the time of the great nun Gelongma Palmo in India, up until this day, there is an unbroken lineage of this practice.

    Receiving transmission and precepts from this unbroken lineage is very, very beneficial. It makes one's practice very proper and effective.

    The Nyungne is a very special and a very skillful practice as mentioned earlier, because one takes the precepts only for an overnight. For instance, you would take it tomorrow morning until the next morning, and then take it again, [the second morning] renewing the vows and precepts. Yet, the benefit is immeasurable because in the light of the bodhichitta one would do such a practice, for the benefit, and for the liberation and the enlightenment of all beings, one makes the proper aspiration and the proper action of doing the practice.

    From that point of view this practice is a great friend and a great support in one's regular practice as well as in commitment to the teachings in general.

    When you take the precepts in the morning, you will take it with the clear attitude, with the aspiration that for the benefit and liberation of all sentient beings one is committing oneself to this practice. Having this  attitude clearly is very important."
