It's times like these that you need a Buddha face palm graphic.

Does the Buddha have any advice on curing flatulence? As a vegetarian that eats lots of beans and pulses (and leafy greens) hemorrhoids are not an issue but... Well, I won't go into any more detail. :emb: :tongue:

Guys, please help me out of my confusion... "Curing Hemorrhoids Sutra"? Is this some Pythonesque kind of humour? And who is Yogi Chen?


P.S.:

Unfortunately not! It is exactly what happens when religion goes wrong.

Maybe somewhat related, but there is an account of the Buddha prescribing a form of panchgavya (otherwise called cowpathy in English) in the Mūlasarvāstivāda Nidāna Mātṛka as follows:

《根本說一切有部尼陀那目得迦》卷3:「佛言。有無齒牛食噉糠麥。後時便出其粒仍全。用此為麨非時應服。」(CBETA, T24, no. 1452, p. 427, b18-20)

The Buddha said, “Have a toothless cow eat husked wheat. Later it will then eject the grain still whole. Use this for roasted flour and take it when it is untimely.”

Strangely enough I picked up a 14 page booklet edition of this sutra from a temple in Hangzhou, China. There was no one around, but a small table piled with leaflets and little booklets on various topics and a sign saying help yourself. I picked it up without knowing what it was. A note in the back says it was reprinted in the year 2000 in thanks for a friend of a monk recovering from stomach cancer.

I don't think it's just about hemorrhoids, it's about 'cankers' in general.

Yeah, it's not just about hemorrhoids. As Qianxi said, it covers cancers as well.
