ImageDaikodo, Enryakuji by mike.tan, on Flickr

Enryakuji is the home base of the so-called marathon monks. These monks are amazing because one of the practices that undergo is a 1000 day spiritual training over 7 years. This sees them running 40km every consecutive day for 100 days in the first three years, 40km every consecutive day for 200 days in years 4 & 5, 60km for 100 days in year 6, and 84 km for 100 days, followed by 40km for 100 days in year 7.

After 7 years, they cover enough ground to walk around the circumference of the earth.

The most amazing feat however, is their fifth year practice where they go without food, water, or rest for 9 straight days, chanting prayers.

Really amazing.
