Sometimes, he would take meal after two days', or three, or four, or even after five days', fast, with his mind fixed on the 'ecstasy of penance9 and without any pre-made resolve.

Bhāṣyaṃ Verse 7

Sometimes, he took food after two days' fast, sometimes, after three or four days' or sometimes, after five days' fast. 'Ecstasy of penance' (tapaḥ-samādhi) means concentration in penances. With his mind fixed on tapaḥ-samādhi, the Lord did not evince any interest in food.
