A set of books designed and edited based on two opposite sides of asceticism.
VOLUME 1: BE A CIRCLE
"Asceticism was once a thriving practice. Monastic law governed the church-peoples with startling rigidity, and even laymen were subject to the complicated world of the feast and the fast. People looked to their stomachs, or rather, what they were putting in them, to prepare themselves for the purity of heaven. Food for the soul, we may call it. But as the Reformation dawned on society, asceticism seemed lost for good."
VOLUME 2: ART OF SURRENDER
"As these religious try to achieve spiritually perfect, these perception has slowly blended into our society. But sometimes, it is ok not to be perfect.It's ok to surrender. Asceticism today is not so much about disciplining the body as living in a world where the cultural and religious structures that supported spiritual commitment in the past seem to have been stripped completely away. We live in a time when it is difficult to be a genuinely spiritual person."
