Whether or not there is a lavatory is probably the least of the worries of the hell realms.

There are some other references to suttas describing hell rooms on this page: http://www.accesstoinsight.org/ptf/dham ... /loka.html

Thank you. But I feel I have dwelt here in a past life. :anjali:

Hello hellbeing,

There is an element of this thinking in all of us from time to time. No need to go on feelings, And if any part of the Teachings seems difficult to you, just set it aside for a while (without discounting it) and continue your practice.

with karuna,
Chris

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

It so happens that "excrement and urine" is an anagram for reenacted rune minx and cad reenter menu nix
Rain soddens what is covered up,
It does not sodden what is open.
Therefore uncover what is covered
That the rain will not sodden it.

We have probably experienced all the realms.

Don't you think after a long time in a deva realm, if you fell into a lower realm, it would seem like hell? Might even make a person want to pursue the Dharma in order to transcend all realms. :anjali:

Now this is seriously badass lower realm kamma - to push alan off his metta-pursuing path!

I hope that the fear of the lower realms he is heading for will turn element towards the brahmavihara of not harassing Dhamma Wheel.

It's in back of the Avici Starbucks. Where the coffee is always weak and the muffins stale.
