You have got to be joking!
I think I'll stick to professionally formulated pharmaceuticals.

You drank your own piss? You've got to be kidding me...

There's nothing good in urine! It's what your body can't use - There's nothing in it worth keeping. The only time I would ever drink my own piss is if I were dying of thirst in the desert.

I'll say it again - There is nothing to be gained from drinking your own piss. To say nothing of drinking fermented piss, or having a urine enema (wtf). Some twisted pervert's probably laughing his butt off at how many people he's managed to convince to drink their own piss in the name of alternative medicine.

There's a lot of quack pseudo science out there, but this takes the cake. What's next I wonder - Eating your own poop?

I've read that Indian Fakirs drink their morning pee on the basis that during the night, melanin is released into the urine, so the first pee of the day has the highest concentration. This apparently aids with meditation.

Greetings,

I wonder what the commentaries say?

I've also read about it. I also have no interest in trying it out - if I were really sick I would try other natural means of cure, there are many, including herbs, juices, and the like; but anyway, despite the initial sense of revulsion, we might want to consider some of the other things we put in to our mouths, masticate and swallow. Meat and dairy have things in them as a matter of course, that would horrify most folks, but most people either don't know, don't care, or just put up a wall of denial so they can go on consuming them. So when compared with blood and pus, which are both found in meat (and amounts of pus in milk), a bit of one's own urine maybe need not evoke such disgust.

:anjali:
Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."

So many negative comment :jawdrop:
Initially, I was thinking this practice is common among forest monk...

Both positive and negative informations are on the web :juggling: , luckily i'm still alive and kicking after this morning ordeal. If drinking urine is confirm bad, i hope this thread should served as a warning to gullible members like me(if there is any) though i'm still not sure which information is most reliable.

Lyoto Machida is a Japanese-Brazilian fighter for the UFC, who drinks his own urine as part of his health and training program:

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3015/404 ... 91af_o.jpg

MONTREAL, Quebec -- Lyoto Machida created quite the stir when he revealed that he and his father, Yoshizo Machida, drink their urine every morning, so when MMA Fighting ran into Yoshizo at Wednesday's UFC 113 media workouts, we asked him about the benefits of urine drinking and why he started doing it.

To prove his point, Yoshizo then drank a full cup of his own urine right in front of us. True story

I don't think I'd bother with urine drinking (mine or another's) but there isn't much point in getting worked up about someone else drinking the stuff.

Wasn't urine medicine considered one of the basic monk's requisites? Wouldn't it be rather presumptuous of us to say that it is worthless medicinally if the Buddha suggested it?
