Food for 200 hundred participants for seven days, daily offering of Rs. 200 each to 15 officiating Lamas and monks, the total cost of offering materials, Torma offerings, flowers, butter lamps, and the Ganacakra offering on the final day add to around US $4,500. During the main program, Khenpo Karten Rinpoché gives Mahayana Poshada vows to the participants at six in the morning, and talks about the benefits of the vows. Breakfast is served at 7:30pm. Recitation of the Sukhavati Sadhana begins at 8:30 until 11:30. Lunch is served at 12:00pm. During the Puja, participants are not allowed to eat meat and diner. In the second session beginning at 1:30 pm, Khen Rinpoché teaches specifically to the Nepalese about the benefits of the practice, the Four Noble Truths and so on. The afternoon sessions go on till 7:00pm. After the fourth day, a Nyungné (fasting) is observed.

On the benefits of Nyungné practice, Avalokitesvara declared ‘Anyone, whether monk or layperson, who follows a single session of Nyungné with full faith and devotion will not be reborn in the lower realms, they will acheive all their goals in this life, and will not suffer obstacles or misfortune’.

A session of Nyungné lasts for 2 days. On the first day participants have breakfast and lunch. On the second day, there is absolutely no food and drink. They abstain from any form of speech except recitations.  The Sukhavati Sadhana is easy to practice and immensely beneficial.  We request all Dharma friends to donate generously for the continuation of this great Sadhana.
