vertical line Posted on Jul.22.2012 @ 01:01AM EDT by cambria129
i a currently reading a book and it has a part in it where this guy talks to a buddha and gets advice to help him with a condition he has. The buddha tells him to stand on his head for three minutes a day and it will reverse his condition. My question being, I have seen movies where monks do this, standing on their head, but does it really do anything!? Has anyone tried or read into it? Im just curious on what you think as I will do my own research on the side. Thank you.

vertical line Standing on your head is not taught by the Buddha. It was just some kind of a show, an entertainment like in the circus. If there is an effect its entertainment and a show off.

vertical line I don't know about entertainment of showing off you will decide. But it worked to get a big influx of blood to my brain (via gravity) and focused for exams.

vertical line Which fine of itself but not condusive to a justified expose of fact.

And again I find myself in the zenguide quagmire of debate.

Stand on ya head don't stand on ya head all same,

Especially considering there is no-one here to claim this head.

Try standing on your head.

If it feels good, or you feel better afterwards,

keep doing it.
