Some advice from Lama Zopa on Nyung Nays
The Nyung Nay practice is a very powerful fasting practice that originated with Gelongma Palmo in India during the 8th century. She practiced meditation on 1000-armed Chenrezig combined with chanting and fasting. She has been a princess prior to taking vows as a nun. At some point she developed leprosy and was isolated from the sangha. As a result of her intensive practice her leprosy was cured and she also attained the 8th bhumi.
Khenpo Norgay has said that Nyung Nay is a kriya yoga tantra practice with an anutara yoga result. It very powerfully purifies karma and also benefits sentient beings.
