History of Fasting and their religious Mentor across the Globe

History of Fasting and their religious Mentor across the Globe

Some of you have not heard about Himalaya before .

The hidden secrets of that place still remain a secret for the shallow minds who always look for proof but would not see because they are blind to see the truth and only believe in what their eyes can see.

Why are you practicing a religion and have faith if you can't believe a fellow man that was blessed with knowledge? It is just a sign that you are a fool.

You are just a follower following the blind and with no purpose .

Beego is a traditional Chinese tradition where you have to fast by drinking only water

There’s a reason that religions such as Taoism, Sikhism, Jainism, Islam, Hinduism, Lutheranism, Catholicism, and Buddhism all fast.

Tell me if anyone of this religion is not in china or Korea.???

Fasting began with the Ancient Greeks, especially Hippocrates and Pythagoras. Later, fasting caught on with Muhammed, Buddha, and Jesus Christ.

Without Pythagoras, we wouldn’t have Aristotle or Plato’s knowledge, as he inspired both of them and their personal philosophies. These philosophies would give way to Western philosophy, which formed and shaped the Western world.

Pythagoras would go on fasts of 40 days at a time for better creativity and mental perception. When he did eat, it was a vegetarian diet, as was the case for his followers, known as the Pythagoreans.

Hippocrates was another notable figure in Ancient Greek fasting. Born 460 BC and died 370 BC.

Hippocrates is said to have stated that “fasting is the greatest remedy – the physician within.” 

Buddha or Siddhartha Gautama, an Ancient Indian religious leader, spiritual teacher, mediator, mendicant, and philosopher was another major figure in fasting. Born around 480 BCE and died in 400 BCE, Buddha fasted quite often, typically taking his fasts beyond a reasonably healthy limit. At one point, Buddha fasted for so long that he became emaciated, which is not something we’d recommend today or ever, really.

Buddhist fasting allowed you to eat in the morning, but once the clock struck noon, you could not eat for the rest of the day. 

It was a serious offense if someone following Buddhism happened to break this fasting rule.

The other school of thought was pindapata, where monks would beg all day for food, as they were only able to consume what they collected in their bowls when the day was over. On bad days when the monks weren’t given much or anything at all, they fasted.

In Seon Buddhism in Korea, fasting and meditation go hand in hand, especially during geumchok training.

Shingon and Tendai, two sects of Japanese Buddhism, follow weeklong fasts known as danjiki to become a master teacher or acharya. In. Tendai school especially, these fasts sometimes go on even longer than a week, such as nine days at a time.

Chinese Buddhists believe in the eight-fold fast or baguan zhai. When on a fast of this nature, the eating window ends at noon. Fasts might last for three or six days. During eating windows, fish has to be avoided.

Another major religious figure outside of Buddha who fasted was Jesus Christ, born 4 BC and died around 30 or 33 AD.

Unlike the followers of other religious figures, Jesus’ disciples didn’t fast. Jesus was even asked about this one day, but he noted how his disciples would begin fasting after he died.

On a final note, this single article cut across china and Korea .

No fool, I repeat only fool would say they don't fast in china and Korea simply because you are a follower of a fool and a greater fool.
