Asceticism

Asceticism

Asceticism is a term used on the practice of self-discipline, often through self-denial or the mastering of desires (fasting involves control over the desire for food, a vigil involves control over the urge to sleep) for a religious end such as repentance, worship, the cultivation of virtue, or union or communion with God. Asceticism is widespread among religious traditions, theistic and non-theistic. Buddhist ascetic, practices are closely linked with the purging of desire and seeing through the illusory nature of ourselves as substantial beings.
