About the event

This special practice is granted by our Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Norbu. The essence of the practice is to take eight precepts and to keep them purely for a period of twenty-four hours. By doing this practice again and again, we acquaint ourself with the practice of moral discipline and thereby make our human life meaningful. When we take the eight Mahayana precepts, we explicitly promise to abstain for twenty-four hours from eight actions:

  • Killing
  • Stealing
  • Sexual activity
  • Lying
  • Taking intoxicants
  • Eating after lunch (meaning we only eat lunch)
  • Sitting on high or luxurious thrones or seats
  • Wearing ornaments, perfume, etc, and singing and dancing, etc.
