Alert But Not Alarmed

Mandy McNulty, July 2003

I first heard about the sixteen day Nyung-Ne retreat way back in January. People said it was ‘an amazing purification practice', but they also talked about how hard it was - with fasting and hundreds of prostrations every day. Being plagued by accidents and health problems, I loved the idea of being able to do an intense purification practice.

The Good, the Bad and the Unexpected - My First Nyung-Ne

Janet Whitlow, June 2003

To be honest, I had no idea what a Nyung-Ne was. I just had a vague notion that it was a fasting and prostration retreat (now I know it is Action tantra), and that if I attended just one it was equivalent to three months of purification retreat. As I work full time, such a benefit as this was mighty attractive.

Nyung-Ne Files - the Ridiculous and the Sublime

Wayne Chapman, March 1999

When Miffi asked if I wanted to do a Nyung-Ne I said "sure". Having never done one before I thought it would be a challenge for the soul and mind. Oh boy! What a challenge! Whoever requested to have it in summer must have been a follower of the Marquis de Sade in a previous life.

Tshering and Ven. Deikyi, explained that “a Nyung-Ne is a powerful purification practice in relation to Chenrezig, the Buddha of compassion.
