We will again practice Vajrasattva for 24 hours starting on the last day of the Chinese Luna year which is 22nd January at 8 pm and continue till 8 pm 23rd January 2012.
This is to purify our negative karma for the past year and to prepare ourselves for the New Year.
During this short retreat, recitation of Vajrasattva 100 syllable long mantra will be done outloud for two hours and rest for two hours. No solid food is allowed during the retreat. However one is allowed to drink water, juice or milk.
Other than mantra sound, we will observe no verbal communication.
Not everyone is able to attend the full 24 hours, so we welcome people to drop in and participate at their leisure.
