Please Provide an Amazing fact about Coin Collecting
Some monks endured a spiritual practice whereby they eliminated all their body fat through diet and exercise, ate wood lacquer tea to kill off internal bacteria, then sealed themselves in a tomb holding a string attached to a bell. A year after the bell stopped ringing, the tomb was opened, and if the monk’s body was found to be uncorrupted, they were revered as a saint; if not, they were re-buried.
The process took years, and as they continued, the monks required more and more help from their brothers until they entered the tomb. And the whole time, you’d hear bells ringing from the nearby tombs as the monks inside slowly wound down the last days of their lives, voluntarily poisoned, starved, and buried alive for a chance at sainthood.
And not a single one of them collected coins.
