Bad Body Odor
Why I have bad body odor
Questions from the audience:
I always use deodorant, but I still have bad body odor. What kind of bad retributions causes me to be like that? And how can I do to solve this problem?
You have bad body odor even though you always use deodorant. This is because in a previous lifetime you were born in the farmer family and raised pigs. Your pigpen was next to a temple and the smell of pig feces got into the temple and disturbed the monks. So the monks had asked you to change the location of the pigpen, you agreed with them but you did not know where you could change. So you did not change the location of your pigpen and asked the monks to be patient with this. This bad retribution has caused you to be patient to your bad body odor.
Offering the good smell flowers to the Triple Gems more often
The solution is you should offer the good smell flowers to worship the Triple Gems more often and keep the 5 precepts every day and 8 precepts every monk day. These good deeds will decrease the strength of the bad retribution – from heavy to be lighter, from light to be none in this lifetime or the next lifetimes.
