      Friends:

      Meditation on Disgusting Objects Dispels Lust!

      The Blessed Buddha once said:
      Bhikkhus & friends: If seeing a corpse thrown into the grave, which
      is one, two, or three days dead, swollen, bloated, bluish-black, full
      of filth; one should draw this conclusion regarding one's own body:
      This body too has this nature, has this destiny, & cannot escape it!
      If one should see a corpse thrown to the burial ground, gnawed and
      partly eaten by crows, hawks, vultures, dogs or jackals, & creeping
      with all kinds of worms & maggots; one should draw this conclusion
      regarding own body: This body too has this nature, will also become
      exactly like that, & cannot ever escape it! If one should see a chain
      of bones, flesh hanging from it, splattered with blood, held together
      by the sinews... or bones disconnected & scattered in all directions,
      here a hand-bone, there a foot-bone; here the pelvis, the spine, the
      skull.... or bones, now bleached, pale white & looking like sea-shells...
      or black rotting bones finally crumbling into dust; One should think:
      This body too has this nature, has this destiny, & cannot escape it!
