Surrounding Area. Lake Forest Mountain Close to Nature. The monks were using a yoga technique known as g Tum-mo, which allowed them to enter a state of deep meditation and significantly raise their body heat, some as much as 17 degrees Fahrenheit in their fingers and toes. After the first sheets were dry, they were replaced with new wet sheets by attendants. Each monk was required to dry 3 sheets over the course of several hours.

In other contests held during cold Himalayan nights, the person who dries the most sheets before dawn is considered the winner. The heat generated through g Tum-mo is only a by product of a process designed to correct misconceptions of reality as defined by Buddhism. Herbert Benson, an associate professor of Medicine at Harvard University who has been studying g Tum-mo for over 20 years, is a firm believer in the healing power of such practices.
The other technique, concentrative visualisation, involves focusing on a mental image of flames along the spinal cord in order to prevent heat loss.
