This special fasting and purification practice is traditionally done by Kadampa Centers worldwide on Buddha’s Enlightenment day which is celebrated on April 15. The practice is performed in conjunction with Eleven-faced Avalokiteshvara prayers and is very powerful in purifying negative karma of body, speech and mind as well as pacifying strong delusions such as desirous attachment and hatred. It is also a special method for receiving blessings and improving our experience of love, compassion and bodhichitta.
