As mentioned before, I'm going through Lent and am practicing a fair amount of fasting and penance. I figured I'd ask, does anyone else practice fasting, penance and the like as part of their religion or spiritual beliefs? I know about Islam and very vaguely Buddhism, what do you practice as part of your belief system, and how do you, personally practice it?
 
Not I said the Walrus. Although I'll do my usual and drop a Seth quote RE: penance:

"You create the idea of guilt. And when you believe in guilt, then you create the penance in accordance to how strongly you believe in the guilt."

"If you find that you are berating yourself because of something you did yesterday, or ten years ago, you are not being virtuous. You are most likely involved with artificial guilt. Even if a violation occurred, natural guilt does not involve penance. It is meant as a precautionary measure, a reminder before an event."

But God is Truth and Justice Himself, one of the purposes of penance is to make reparation for the very fact, that a wrong occurred in objective reality.

Of course there's more to penance than just that, this video helps explain it albeit it's ver long, apologies for that:
