The Nyungne (fasting meditation) is part of the Krija Yoga Tantras. It is a practice on Loving Eyes, in the form with hundred arms and eleven heads. This is very efficient meditation, which purifies useless or blocking impressions, while, at the same time, builds up positive impressions in our mind. It takes two and a half days, what makes it is a very short retreat practice. There are special outer rules: The meditation sessions are 10 hours per day. The first day we do not smoke, drink alcohol and eat only vegetarian food, while during the second day we neither talk, nor drink or eat. This practice is called “resting in fastening” and can be very beneficial for healing ailments as well as developing compassion.
