Tibetan Sakadawa "Vesak" ... the morning of May 27 starts with Tsum Rachen Nunnery and Mu Monastery sanghas going into many sets of very strict Compassionate Buddha Chenrezig Nyung Na (fasting) retreat.
This great, secret and powerful retreat will be dedicated for all beings to be free from all samsaric sufferings and especially to the recent earthquake in Qinghai - Yushu victims who have passed on and those suffering, to have instant liberation from all sufferings and gain enlightenment.
