By sarhyama on the pit of the throat (khecari mudra), a yogi can check the stings of hunger and thirst and conquer them.
Kantha kitpa represents the visuddhi cakra of later yoga texts, which is believed to be situated in the region of the pit of the throat. (Certain mudras, for instance kaka mudra and khecari mudra, helps to defeat hunger and thirst).
