Well, "revulsion" would be some feeling, too, which we have to overcome. But anyway, there are limits to this idea - and as the Buddha also asked us to check everything "he" taught, I'd say there is s.th. wrong with this notion. There is a kind of strongest physical pain which cannot be overcome by insight, awakening, "cessation of the psychophysical" - because it won't just fade. Then only morphium and the like will do.

Reading this article I happened to stumble over this wondrous piece of buddhist art from Bezeklik Thousand Buddha Caves.

Something in these caves, really strenghtened my resolve to overcome the psychophysical prison, as so done by these great ones. In a way these illustrations on the cave walls made some mahayana sutras come to "life".

Does anyone here know anything more about these caves?

Thank you.
