The Buddhist Ramadan
In the Geeta Lord Krishna talks about the importance of not eating too much or too little. In the Old Testament Wisdom, or Jesus, emphasizes the importance of eating just the right amount. But if you look at the world today apparently all that is hard to do.
How many impressively obese Muslims have you seen? There might be science behind the Ramadan. During the Ramadan you are to only eat before sunrise or after sunset. That 12 hour fast apparently does wonders for your body, and the benefits last all year.
The Buddha experimented upon himself much and said to his disciples, eat whatever you want, however much you want, but only during the hours of sunrise and noon. And I am tempted to bring that practice into the global religious organization I am going to create, to mirror the days of the Muslim Ramadan.
