Smell, taste, touch, hearing, these are all visions.

Do you have a functioning air conditioner? In hot or humid weather the outside smells tend to intensify. So if a hobo took a crap outside your house the smell could get carried in. Especially since you said the smell comes and goes.

Maybe someone's dog is doing its business nearby?

no, i checked for things that can be causing the smell and found nothing.

besides, i went to different rooms for watching tv, at the garden, sleeping room, and eventually smell this for a few seconds. in my abscense other practitioner also felt it, so i wasn't smelling haha

whatever was it, i guess a pacific practices was sufficient.

now, is there a kind of comprendium of signs and provocations? maybe a khenpo's work? it hink this would ve very very useful to have

Dead rat under the floor, I suspect.
It can be a foul smell for a long time.

Or the Phantom Fart Fairy. We have one.......... I'm married to her. ;)

That is a good bet. I have had animals die in the walls of my room before; it smells like shit when this happens.

Leaking pipes could also be it.
