Compassion and Fasting Retreat


Join the community at KMC Los Angeles.  This special fasting and purification retreat is performed in conjunction with Thousand-armed Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion. It is very powerful for purifying negative karma, pacifying strong delusions, receiving blessings, and increasing our love, compassion and bodhichitta. In this retreat, we make prayers for all suffering to completely cease.
