Please pre-register your participation by sending an email to baromkagyu.syd@gmail.com with name, contact details, or put your name down the list directly on the registration sheet at the temple. You can come on Friday 31st July 2020 to complete your registration. Pre-registration is essential to book for meals.


If one practice Nyungne just one time, all negative karma of forty thousands kalpas will be purified and one will not be reborn into the lower realms. Purification is possible due to the power of Chenrezig’s compassion and blessings as well as our faith and devotion. When such causes and conditions come together, a true purification inevitably takes place.

During Nyungne practice, physical fasting purifies the negative karma of killing, stealing, and sexual misconduct and overcomes obscuration of the body. Therefore you will never be born in the hungry ghost realm, and ultimately you will attain the supreme body of the buddhas. Abstaining speech and remaining in silence purifies the negative karma of lying, slandering, harsh words, and the idle talk, and purifies obscuration of speech. One will not be born in the animal realm, and ultimately will attain the melodious enlightened speech of the buddhas. One-pointe concentration on practices during Nyungne purifies the negative karma of greed, evil thoughts, wrong views, and purifies obscurations of the mind. One will not be born in the hell realm and will have spiritual realization and spiritual experience. Ultimately one will attain the five wisdoms of the Buddhas.

It has been said that this practice is so great that even offering a meal to a Nyungne practitioner is like offering a meal to an eight-bhumi bodhisattva. Just by supporting Nyungne practitioners one will receive tremendous benefits.
