I am wondering if there are any way to make that in the British Isles?


He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
...
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.

This is interesting. Just for everyone's information, I wanted to mention that this tooth brushing issue was also addressed a great deal in Islam. (I am not Muslim, this is just my understanding). As some may know, Muslims pray multiple times per day, and I believe the use of the "miswak" stick is suggested after each prayer. It was also encouraged during Rammadan, I believe.

Just a comparative religions point, I suppose.

I'm quite surprise that nobody know about neem toothbrush... Neem tree is used in ayurvedic since thousands of years... Like a base medicine for most of diseases.
Indian people still use nowadays those toothbrush stick and I cannot imagine that the buddha was speaking about something else..
The story of thai monk spending hours to prepare one toothbrush for the elders from I don't know what tree is quite hilarious to me. :rofl:

Probably hundreds of website offer them but here is one

Now, if I could just find a Buddha quote advising everyone to stop using perfume. That includes you guys--no aftershave, no cologne. Reason? It stinks like hell, and messes with my mindfulness.

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5
