This way of life is very unusual, as it is a means to attain happiness without harming others.


Nyung-nay Practice of 1,000-Armed Chenrezig Ritual with Fasting and Vows of Silence




Saturday, March 10–Monday, March 26

The meditative practice of Chenrezig, the Buddha of compassion in his form with eleven faces and one thousand arms, is a powerful means of purification. It is based on respecting vows of fasting and silence: partial the first day and complete the second. The vows finish the morning of the third day. This retreat takes place over eight sessions of two days of intensive practice. However, it is possible to participate in a single nyung-nay. A complete explanation of the ritual is given the first day of each nyung-nay.

Lama Nyigyam—an authentic practitioner. After having passed numerous years in retreat, Lama Nyigyam was chosen by Shamar Rinpoche to carry out a ten-year Mahamudra meditation retreat, at the conclusion of which he began to direct the three-year retreat center in Parping, Nepal.





Lama Nyigyam, a retreat participant of Sharminub Monastery in Kathmandu, Nepal and retreat master in Parping, Nepal, draws ever-growing appreciation from those who meet him and follow his teachings.

For the past several years, he has regularly visited European centers. Despite our many requests, Lama Nyigyam is unable to tour as extensively as in previous years. In February, he is receiving the transmission of teachings from Khenpo Chodrak Rinpoche in Nepal, and, in April, he is accompanying Thaye Dorje, His Holiness the 17th Gyalwa Karmapa, on his journey to Hong Kong.

As a result, Lama Nyigyam will guide the Nyung Nay retreat at Dhagpo Kagyu Ling as planned (from March 10–26), but he will be unable to lead the 16th Karmapa’s Guru Yoga Retreat (April 11–15), nor that of Royal Tradition of Chenrezig (April 23–27). The two retreats will take place nonetheless; Lama Kyenrab will guide the first and Lama Puntso the second.
