Asceticism is a lifestyle that denies worldly pleasures in order to gain spiritual benefit. There are different degrees of asceticism from casual to severe. Some ascetics might forego eating a meal, where others would deny owning all property, sexual gratification, etc., and would rely on the charity of others for their subsistence.
