The Buddha is said to have undertaken extreme forms of fasting which resulted in his emaciation before abandoning it before his great awakening. Nonetheless, different Buddhist traditions practice distinct types of fasting.
Traditional Buddhist monastics have followed the Prtimoka norms given in the several Vinayas which all specify that one must not eat after the noon meal. Instead, Buddhist teachings recommend using this time for meditation or sutra chanting. Infringing on this rule is a Pcittika violation that requires confession.
This is not fasting, but rather a modest and reasonable eating pattern that is supposed to improve one’s meditation and overall health. Devout lay people will also follow this guideline on important religious observance days.
