The Jains too have such a practice:  // Sallekhana (IAST: sallekhanā),
also *known
as* Samlehna, Santhara, Samadhi-marana or Sanyasana-marana; is a
supplementary vow to the ethical code of conduct of *Jainism*. It is the
religious practice of*voluntarily* fasting to *death* by gradually reducing
the intake of food and liquids.  //
