In my personal experience everything that comes from a realized individual is supreme medicine. Even corpse salt from a high Lama is a wonderful medicine for ones practice.

The best example I have is from being plumber. I was fixing the sewer pipes of a high Lama. He had not been informed of my work and took a shower while I was working on it. As I was scrambling around I noticed the water seemed to have a luminous quality. I had no idea who was using the water but reached out and touched it. Instantly my mind was calm and vast like space. Like I had spent many weeks in deep retreat. It stayed like that for a few days. It did not matter what I did. My mind did not move. Erotic thoughts, sleepiness or watching TV it all felt the same.

I asked the Lama about it. He said that yes it was normal, but Lama's usually do not give those kind of blessings. It does not last and he considered it showing off.

If that is what bath water will do I can't imagine how powerful those other substances mentioned would be.

Well, if the Lama is anything like me, that luminous stuff wasn't water! :tongue:

Simply put, sukra [semen], both male and female is the the byproduct [kita] that is left over when the final product of digestion, ojas, is formed. Ojas is the real "bodhicitta" in the body, and directly supports the indestructible drop in the heart. N

Thanks Namdrol. So I guess, on this basis, the level of Ojas has more to do with correct diet than semen loss or retention?

That depends on a number of factors. Ojas can be lost with semen if a man's digestion processes are not good, if they are not eating well, etc. Other causes for the deterioration of ojas is stress, worry, poor habits such as staying up to late, not getting proper rest and so on. Also one is more likely to loose ojas with semen in the summer when one's diet is less nutrititous, less oily, lighter, rougher, and so on.

Thanks Namdrol. Looks like quite a complex topic. In some ways more multi-faceted than one may initially think.

It was statements like that that made me realize how important health is in Buddhism.

Health is always important. Thats why Buddha advised people to start practice when they are young, not when they are old and retiring.

Right but it works on many levels. For example, knowing about ojas is good for your practice.
