Meet Jia Daochzhan - a monk for 80 years. Climbing the stairs to his cave in a young person takes 40 minutes, and 80-year-old monk missing twenty.
If you ask an octogenarian Jia Daochzhana how old he is, he would smile and say: "I am still a child." The last thirty years Daochzhan child lives in a cave. Here he reads mantras, studying ancient books, communicate with students and each new day again comes into the fight between heaven and hell, which he believes are on the ground, in the human world, and not waiting for us after death.
"And hell, and heaven we create ourselves - says Jia Daochzhan. - It is believed that in hell you are waiting for the torture, but I ask you: to go under the scalpel - is not torture? Disease - is not torture? Disease - it is a punishment for our wrong doings. A hospital - this court. When they cut the insides, then a man and gets into a real hell. "
In order not to go to hell, you need to eat right, monitor their health and exercise, and most importantly, live and communicate with the world correctly. Jia himself Daochzhan (formerly an ordinary farmer, now a monk) trains every day, starting to exercise with four in the morning. And in addition, to deal with the hell do not need people to do evil, how to smile and not to seek to have more possible than a person needs. "The simple life is not bad, - says Jia Daochzhan. - Happiness is not exactly money. Conversely, the more money the less happiness. If I had money, I would constantly shaking over them, would be afraid of losing them. And when you have nothing, then there is no problem too ... The main thing - to eat well. "
