You quoted the last sentence in the sutta (http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... .than.html) yet I don't understand how it connects to the verses above it. How does the urging to not want honor and fame got to do with the last sentence?[/quote]Your question here is totally beside the point. What I quoted answers your OP directly, and before you go asking new questions, the polite thing to do is answer the questions put to you first.[/quote]
Believe it or not, I once pondered about the Buddha defecating and urinating and felt a peripheral disgust and some kind of blot seemed to appear on ly arm. I thought about this and thought maybe this"punishment" is a sign that the Buddha is clean and does not urinate or defecate, then the blot disappeared...
