Greetings Sebai Maa,

Thank you for this response. Very enlightening information which puts some pieces together for me regarding my studies on Christian monasticism in Egypt and Ethiopia. I recently read that many of the monastics and desert dwellers were largely Egyptians in the earlier periods of Christianity, and interestingly the Egyptian practitioners slightly differed from others as for example they would not fast on fasting days if an important guest happened to visit. This flexibility I thought was very wise, and I find that flexibility of body and mind when pursuing higher living and experiences is almost a divine gift when it comes to making the path possible at certain times of struggle. It makes sense that social disintegration would cause this type of practice, and about that time India would have been influenced ( as you explained clearly in the text on Buddhism and African Origins.)
