His companion carried the woman in his mind until darkness when camping he asked the first monk if what he did was proper, carrying the woman. He responded of course....he had dropped the woman at the stream bank and you have carried her these many hours.
So that means...don't make a big deal over it nor pretend one has circumstances in which such circumstances never present. They do..but not a big deal.

Note that it is better if you already know the basics of how to calm your mind, which is the fundamental for any meditation practice in Buddhism. Here you can find a comprehensive introduction to meditation on impurty: A Buddhist Approach to the Contemplation on Body Parts - Asubha. Here you can find it with pictures: Asubha-kammatthana.

I guess you are talking to me as I mention that term, uneducated layperson.
I..."We've had this discussion in a different thread, and you seem to be taking it here, off the topic from what was originally asked. I must request you refrain from bringing that debate here."...don't have the slightest idea to what you reference.
That's my opinion, I versed it, in response to the question.
YOu consider it to violate board rules....report it.
You are certainly entitled to your opinion on my opinion. IN fact you are quite welcome to it.
Your opinion of course....your request....no I will have none of it.
Quiet mind meditation tranquility meditation, and such things by other name, can be remedy for such things as surely as other remedy and is a process quite well founded in some buddhist traditions. So I advocate for it as a option.
Desire as a aspect(ignorant) of discerning awareness is well founded and present in certain schools of tibetan buddhism.
So I find what I advocate and mention is on point and within buddhist tradition. I could provide literature to validate that claim, if I found it necessary.
That I state I am a uneducated layperson does not infer I have no practice nor that I am not familiar with this thing of buddhism. All aspects of it...certainly not. My aspect, my study.....quite familiar.
I stand by my comment and affirm its relevence, and worth. The initial poster may contend it not. No other.
