The term ascetic describes a person who abstains himself from all the worldly pleasures and lives the life of a hermit.

The people who are ascetic can be said to do so for some higher goals they want to achieve in their life. They want to be the perfect embodiment of purity and spirituality and on the way to make a connection with the divine powers.

Though the term is a part of the dictionary, it is almost impossible to get that kind of person in flesh and blood. The whole world is so much indulged in worldly pleasures that hardly anybody thinks about something to attain much higher than what he could not see with his own eyes but only can experience and that experience also comes after a lot of effort.
