The most warming meditation is the practice of Tummo, the “Mystic Warmth Yoga”, which awakens hidden reserves of health, and, as a side effect, also warmth. Moreover, the heat is not some kind of metaphysical, I am quite real, tangible. You have probably seen videos in which the monks dedicated to Master Tummo dry wet sheets on themselves in the cold (do not try this yourself).
