Afayaya is a ten-week personal iji in which a person willingly abstains from sacrilegious and partially immoral acts such as drinking liquor, participating in warfare, and engaging in prostitution, refrains from behaviors that offend others, confesses his/her secret offenses to the victims thereof, strives to improve himself/herself and to reform the world around him/her. Afayaya is meditation upon the nature of God Himself, the nature of The Most High.
