The tummo and tsa-lung practices are high yoga techniques that are absolutely necessary for practitioners of Tantra. These yogas help to open your channels & create great bliss. Tummo has long been used to generate body heat even in the coldest snow mountains of the Himalayas. These yoga techniques come from the Yuthok Nyingthik by Yuthok Yonten Gonpo (1126-1202) who is widely regarded as the main founder of Tibetan Medicine. The Yuthok Nyingthik is the main Tantric Buddhist practice cycle associated with Tibetan Medicine. It is traditionally considered to be an important spiritual component of healing, and moreover is regarded in all Tibetan Buddhist traditions as a very special method for quickly attaining awakening and realization.
