“Chelleneshin” is a compound word in Persian made up of the words “Chelleh”; which is a period of forty days; and “Neshin”, which means sitting. The term refers to a period of forty days and nights of solitude during which time a seeker prays and meditates. In many mystical traditions, The Cycle of Forty is the duration for a spiritual metamorphosis which results in a transition to another, transcendent dimension.
