Close that Lid

Oct 1, 2012 | Views: 1,414

Dear students and friends,

This is important for you health. I would like to share with you an email that Albert sent to me recently about toilet bowls. Most of us do not flush the toilet bowl with the lid down. A group of scientist conducted an experiment to see the effects of flushing with the lid up… and with the lid down.

Carefully view the video below… Will your toilet be contaminated with bacteria from the waste you just expelled??

Keep your toilets clean for the safety of yourself, your children and pets…

Flushing the toilet with the lid up “can spread germs”

London, Jan 4 (PTI) The next time after you answer nature”s call, make sure to close the lavatory lid before you flush, for a new study says that watering the toilet with its lid up can spread germs like the winter vomiting bug.

A team at Leeds University says leaving the lid up can allow a cloud of bacteria to explode into the air, settling on nearby surfaces. This also increases the risk of viruses like the winter vomiting bug of transmitting to another person.

“It is very clear from our work that the lid is there for a reason,” Prof Mark Wilcox, who led the team, was quoted by the ”Daily Mail” as saying.

For the study, researchers conducted an experiment to see how using a toilet lid could affect the spread of disease, specifically in hospitals.

They used a sterilised toilet cubicle and created a ”diarrhoea effect” in the bowl using stool samples that had been infected with the hospital superbug C. difficile. They found C diff was transported up to 10 inches above the toilet seat when it was open and a reduced rate was still detected in the air up to 90 minutes later.

When the lid was closed, no C. difficile was recovered on any surface, but when it was open it was found on the cistern, to the right and left of the toilet seat and on the floor.

Professor Wilcox said: “We then put vegetable colour dye in the water bowl, lifted the lid and put cling film over the toilet seat. After we flushed the toilet we found it sprayed a large amount. By placing the film onto filter paper we found that the toilet could spray up to 50 droplets per flush.”
He added that their research also had wider implications, saying, “It would be prudent if there is a lid to put it down after flushing. This contains smells and droplets that can become aerolised. Some bugs spread more easily to surfaces this way and the norovirus is thought to be one of them.

“Our advice — put down the lid if it”s there and wash your hands afterwards.” PTI MOT

    This is a very good demonstration on how important it is to close that lid. We are often not aware of how we put our health at risk and it is such an easy move to close the lid and avoid contamination of our environment.

  2. Anne Ong on Nov 21, 2016 at 12:46 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this hygienic tip. I’m sure not many people knows about this.Learnt something new today 🙂

  3. Pastor Moh Mei on Apr 4, 2016 at 9:11 pm

    I’ve known very few people who have the habit of closing the toilet seat lid when flushing. I think when it comes to public toilet, people try to not touch anything if they can help it so closing toilet seat lid is another contact. At home with personal toilets people assume it’s “clean” because it’s mostly personal use.

    For me I’m usually wary when I walked into a toilet with the lid closed because I’m thinking do I want to open and discover what’s underneath specially with public toilet sometimes you wish you never opened that lid. Keeping the lid open when flushing in a way ensure the toilet is flushed clean before you exit. So I guess if one do start practicing closing the toilet seat lid when flushing, it should also be accompanied by opening the seat lid again after flushing is done. This serves to ensure the toilet has been flushed clean and also confidence for the next person who enters.

  4. Sadi on Feb 21, 2015 at 6:03 pm

    Toilets are so germ filled it’s ridiculous lol. I did an experiment at university to see whether the bathroom door handle had more germs or my hair strand and my hair strand was dirtier. Ew and lol.

  5. Adrian Cho on Jul 3, 2013 at 10:30 am

    Now only I knows about this, that flushing the toilet with the lid up, can spread germs.

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing this post and care.

  6. Andrew Boon on Mar 19, 2013 at 1:55 pm

    OMB! I never knew. I do not think I will EVER use another public toilet again!

    Goes to show how much we know or how much we do not know. However whatever the case may be it does not change the fact that, the truth or the fact remains unchanged given our knowledge of it.

    Hence I would relate it to karma and how karma exist whether we choose to believe in it or not…

    I know it is rather strange to equate the toilet to karma but hey it is samsara and samsara should be a constant reminder of karma!

  7. edward ooi on Mar 9, 2013 at 5:13 pm

    It is very disgusting to know the truth about flushing the toilet bowl while germs exploded and spread to our stuffs near the toilet bowl, that means I have been eating own poo for 12years but luckily the thing that saved me from eating my poo for the last 2 years is my when my sister told me that there is such thing so I from that day onwards I never left the toilet without closing the lid. Thanks SIS for telling me about this kind of stuff.

  8. beatrix ooi on Mar 8, 2013 at 6:01 am

    I didn’t knew about this before. I don’t know why, but when I was small I used to have a really weird habit—watching the water flushes itself out. It’s just weird. This article really blew my mind out, I have no idea that flushing without lids will bring us so many problems and it’s also very unhygienic. Thank You for sharing Rinpoche.
    Love, beatrix.

  9. wei theng on Feb 19, 2013 at 4:07 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche and Albert for sharing.
    This is very informative and em….lesson learned: I will close the lid next time…. 😛
    I wonder if we do not use the toilet flush system, but we pour in water to do the manual ‘flushing’, will it be better? In that way we can use save water (by using water that we use for washing clothes, etc) too.

  10. Jean Mei on Jan 18, 2013 at 8:31 pm

    … that’s it, that’s it!! My toilet bowl lid is going to be down everytime I flush!! And I’m never using my laptop or phone in the toilet ever again! How nasty.

    Thinking about it, it’s ingenious that in some hotels they have the a separate small room just for the toilet bowl.

    I’m really shocked at how far the bacteria can spread. Thank you, Rinpoche, for sharing with us this useful fact 🙂

  11. tenzin llhamo on Dec 22, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    This so interesting. And I always thought it is the other way around. How stupid! And all this while, I have been brushing those icky stuff into my body. This is something that we should let people know and educate the need for it. I would… Thank you for the information Rinpoche and Albert.

  12. joey wong on Nov 7, 2012 at 3:24 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche, for ever caring for us. Rinpoche’s love for us is really special and immense and all encompassing.

    But this is the other end of the spectrum here:

  13. Jessica Yap on Nov 4, 2012 at 4:27 pm

    Somehow since young I always have this habit of closing the toilet bowl lid everytime after i’ve used it. After watching an episode of Mythbusters about how far the germs/bacteria could travel when flushed further reinforces me to do so! i shudder at the thought of those air borne germs lingering on my toothbrush which will be in my mouth everyday!! OMB!

    Bacteria and germ are every where no matter how careful or clean we are, what we could do to prevent illness resulting from these germs are to be mindful and be clean at all times. Having a healthy life enables us to do more Dharma therefore taking us another step closer to Enlightenment!

    Thank you dear Rinpoche for sharing!

  14. Milly on Nov 1, 2012 at 3:40 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and Albert for sharing this information. On the spiritual side, by closing the lid each time we flush can be a practice on mindfulness. Rinpoche’s blog has many information articles besides the Dharmic ones.

  15. bengkooi on Nov 1, 2012 at 4:32 am

    Interesting. When I was living abroad, I noticed that every time I entered the washroom, the toilet lid was down. I always lifted the lid with slight trepidation, hoping not to find a surprise waiting for me. I never realised that the lid was down for hygiene purposes.

    Whereas, over here in Malaysia, a closed lid always meant something didnt flush properly, and open lids are considered better as we can see what is waiting for us. Hehe 🙂

    I shall start implementing this in my office!

  16. Lucas Roth on Oct 30, 2012 at 3:21 pm

    wow i never knew this! but now i am definitely flushing with the lid down!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. Irene Lim on Oct 29, 2012 at 8:11 pm

    Yes, it makes sense to close the toilet lid when flushing the waste.

  18. Sean Wang on Oct 27, 2012 at 11:04 am

    This is very informative. Thanks for sharing, Rinpoche. I guess I leave up the lid due to habituation and laziness as I want to get off the toilet as soon as I finish. Hahaha. I would be so cool to have a toilet that can filter out bacteria before you flush.

  19. Darren Kechara Paradise on Oct 23, 2012 at 2:27 am

    I never knew about this all the while, thanks for the sharing Rinpoche. Gonna show my parents this video.

  20. AdelineTan on Oct 19, 2012 at 8:42 am

    Since this is to keep our toilets clean for the safety of ourselves, i’ll make a habit to close the lid when flushing to prevent the germs from spreading.

  21. Cynthia Ng on Oct 18, 2012 at 8:28 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche & Albert sharing. This is a important knowledge for us to know and remember – CLOSE THE LID BEFORE FLUSHING! Very informative and interesting 🙂

  22. verontung on Oct 18, 2012 at 1:35 pm

    没想到这么平凡-上厕所做“生意”可以有那么多知识!
    谢谢仁波切。

  23. Han on Oct 14, 2012 at 7:46 pm

    To me, this can be a minor issue but yet so important in our daily life!
    Thank you for sharing this.

  24. Cynthia Lee on Oct 12, 2012 at 3:01 am

    I normally dont close the lid cos I like to see everything flushed out and not leave any souvenirs. I guess now will just have to close it and reopen to double check. 🙂

  25. Wan Wai Meng on Oct 10, 2012 at 12:17 am

    I learnt something new today.

  26. nicholas on Oct 9, 2012 at 10:25 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the sharing.
    Never thought of this before and this definitely a great and healthy practice.

    Will be a great sharing to others.

  27. patsy on Oct 4, 2012 at 6:12 pm

    Gosh, I never close the lid when I flushed. Will be more mindful and close the toilet lid now whenever I flush! Thank you, Rinpoche and Albert, for sharing this information.

  28. Uncle Eddie on Oct 3, 2012 at 4:29 pm

    Rinpoche in all respect is not only caring, sharing and a truly concerned guru for all his students and friends alike, even for animals. As what this new study says that watering the toilet with its lid up can spread germs like the winter-vomiting bug; a superbug C.Diff called “Clostridium Difficile” in long form, which releases toxins that can cause 500,000 cases of infected diarrhea diesease last year in USA, and it is now picked up in the wider community as muchas in hospitals. Thank you Rinpoche, for youe usual kind concern and deep compassion in warning us of such calamity!i

    我说啊,我们都忽略了周边的小细节,说真的,以前一般上盖着冲水的习惯,是为了不让异味散发出来,哈哈。当然要谢谢Albert 的细心和大家分享这样的讯息。

  31. Angelshooi on Oct 3, 2012 at 1:36 am

    Thanks Rinpoche and Albert for sharing this informative information.

    This has become a habitual or is a must, for me and my kids to close the lid after used. But didn’t know that the toilet can be contaminated with so much of bacteria. This information will benefit lots of people. I will share with my friends.

  32. Wah Ying on Oct 2, 2012 at 11:14 pm

    To have a good habit like closing the toilet lid or cover our mouth while we sneeze is definitely something good. Simple but worth doing.

    And Swee Keong just shared with us on blog chat top six places with the most germs, and they are more dirtier than a toilet (http://amoralcompass.blogspot.com/2009/08/6-things-dirtier-than-toilet-other-than.html) .

    You can’t imagine our computer keyboard, money and soap are some of them…

  33. David Lai on Oct 2, 2012 at 6:24 pm

    This is quite funny and truth we should all know. I always flush my toilet with the seat up thinking it is better and more hygienic for everyone. Well, now I know better…

  34. ECheah on Oct 2, 2012 at 6:12 pm

    Goodness, if our own toilets could be so infective, just imagine public toilets!

  35. sweekeong on Oct 2, 2012 at 5:18 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for posting this article. The habit of closing the lid will improve everyone general health who are staying together. I have noticed certain toilets have very powerful flushing power. The water actually splashed out, and I have to stand back from being hit by the water. Unknowingly the bacterias have fly out together with the vapor of the splash. I use toilet every day but I never use my common sense to check my action. 🙂

  36. andrew hibberd on Oct 2, 2012 at 3:09 pm

    i drink my pee so no problem

    and make sure the brown stuff stays inside

  37. Carmen Lin on Oct 2, 2012 at 10:20 am

    If we lay over toothbrush and shaver all around the basin without keeping it properly plus if we don’t close the lid before flushing we are brushing and shaving with poo and pee… XP (mental note: will close the lid before flushing, and keep away all brushes) A big thank you, Rinpoche for sharing this information 🙂

  38. Mayy on Oct 2, 2012 at 9:55 am

    Oh my! Never occur to me that all these droplets of these many bacterias could be spewing around after we are done. This video has shown it all! Looks like it is important that we close the lid before we flush!

  39. Ong Moh Mei on Oct 2, 2012 at 12:47 am

    I watched this Video last night and I thought eew. But today I have used the toilet many times and did I close the lid when I flush…NO..I did not. Interesting itsn’t it? So why didn’t I? Perhaps a) I didn’t truly believe, b) I actually couldn’t care less about the bacteria, c) I didn’t get the importance of the matter, d) I’m simply forgetful or e) it’s simply not easy to kick our habituation. Dharma lesson here – we should never underestimate the power of habituation and it goes to say just knowing something doesn’t achieve nothing unless we put our knowledge to practice.

  40. judy lam on Oct 1, 2012 at 11:33 pm

    When I walked into a toilet, i would avoid one with the lid down because I would not want to open the lid and worst still, do not know if the person before me flushed properly! After reading this, I know why people would close the lid. If it is proven to be more hygienic, why not? Thank you for sharing Rinpoche.

  41. may ong on Oct 1, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    It never occur to me that it is important to close the lid of the toilet seat and its implications, especially after we puke or vomit. I like this video and will share it for educational purpose. Thank you.

  42. grace (KHJB) on Oct 1, 2012 at 7:01 pm

    Gosh…i never close the lid flushing. this is really good information and should share with other how to prevent themself from bacteria .

  43. Paris on Oct 1, 2012 at 6:43 pm

    LOL this is so random but important. Gives a whole new meaning to women whingeing about men not putting the toilet seat down!

  44. Cindy Lee on Oct 1, 2012 at 6:33 pm

    Oh! this is very interesting especially for those who do not flush after using it. Thanks for sharing

  45. abby F on Oct 1, 2012 at 6:30 pm

    I read about this years ago and when I first knew about it, I feel like: aiyo, how could I not knowing this! And I keep telling friends around me and then don’t really believe it. Never mind, I can show them this post and video now! Hehe! Thanks Rinpoche and Albert for this useful info! 🙂

  46. June Tang (KHJB) on Oct 1, 2012 at 5:04 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing. It is very interesting and very important messages for our health. A simple action can prevent spreading out the viruses and have more healthier to ourself and family.So do it now–“Close down the toilet lip before flushing”

  47. Sharon Saw on Oct 1, 2012 at 4:16 pm

    You really learn all sorts of useful things on Rinpoche’s blog!!! I will definitely be closing my toilet lid now!!!

  48. June Tang (KHJB) on Oct 1, 2012 at 4:07 pm

    Thank youRinpoche for sharing.It is very interesting and very important messages for our health.A simple action can prevent spreading out of viruses and more healthier to ourself and family.
    So do it now—“Close down the toilet lip before flushing”

  49. Lai on Oct 1, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    thanks Rinpoche for sharing this info, i will try to change my habit from now.

  50. PhillisChin on Oct 1, 2012 at 3:14 pm

    Oooo…. Thank You Rinpoche & Albert to share this! HAve to make it a habit to close every time from now on. Thanks again.

  51. Sofi on Oct 1, 2012 at 1:45 pm

    Thanks for this sharing. Very interesting and informative. Could safe lots of sick days from just a simple action of closing the toilet lid when flushing. Will pass this information on to others too.

  52. Siong Woan on Oct 1, 2012 at 1:05 pm

    A small gesture in our daily lives could help prevent the spreading of viruses.

    ‘Close the lip before you flush’ – should be printed and pin on toilet doors 🙂

  53. Lim (KH JB) on Oct 1, 2012 at 12:46 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for sharing, a simple action can save us. We should share to more peoples to get their awareness about this. Thanks Albert also to let us know more and be aware…

  54. guat hee on Oct 1, 2012 at 12:01 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche and Albert for the sharing – what the purpose of close that lid.

  55. Wendy Loh on Oct 1, 2012 at 11:55 am

    Thank you for sharing, Rinpoche. Interestingly, I always close the lid before flushing…quite instinctively. Mmm…

  56. lewkwanleng on Oct 1, 2012 at 2:58 am

    This is indeed very informative, and it has never crossed my mind to close the lid. 🙂

    I am not surprised to know that trees are good to the human’s body. I remember my grandparents used to live in a village where there was a lot of green, not so much concrete and traffic, they were healthy and seldom sick. I like to live there too because the air was very fresh.

    In the cities where there are fewer trees, people tend to get sick easily due to pollutant caused by vehicles, industrial waste, etc. It is proven that trees are a good provider of oxygen and they can absorb and filter pollutants. Many metropolitan cities in Europe have started to plant more trees and they have a plan to grow more trees in the city for the wellbeings of the residents.

    Malaysia has visitors from all over the world as our country here is beautiful, peaceful and diverse. I am fortunate to be in Malaysia with wonderful friends here too. So many people from all over the world visit our Kechara stalls, outlets and Kechara Forest Retreat in Malaysia. They really are happy to invite Dorje Shugden home with them along with his prayers, photo, poster, mantra and information booklet. Many of them return and or contact to tell us their wishes has been fulfilled when they sincerely pray to World Peace Buddha protector Dorje Shugden. It makes me so happy to benefit others.

    Arya Nagarjuna was a famous Mahasiddha, Buddhist philosopher, and alchemist who was born 400 years after Buddha Shakyamuni’s parinirvana.

    He is known for establishing the Middle Path (Madhyamaka) Buddhist tradition, making gold to fulfil the needs of the Sangha, and retrieving the Prajnaparamita Sutra from the Naga realm.

    Today, the practical applications of Einstein’s theories include the development of the television, remote control devices, automatic door openers, lasers, and DVD-players. Recognized as TIME magazine’s “Person of the Century” in 1999, Einstein’s intellect, coupled his strong passion for social justice and dedication to pacifism, left the world with infinite knowledge and pioneering moral leadership. So was his passion for Buddhism and its teachings. Today we present you Einstein’s world famous quotes on Buddhism that will be of a great value to understand how much the Buddhism was close to Einstein’s heart.

    An Introduction To The Buddha Form And Iconography

    In this book, Tsem Rinpoche introduces us to a rich range of Buddha forms, providing basic information to kindle our interest in the iconography of statues –their postures, gestures and mudras, the ornaments and the implements they hold. Each one of these is a symbolic teaching in itself. Indeed the entire iconography, colour and pose of each Buddha statue combined presents a path to ultimate enlightenment.

    Everyone wants to be happy in life. Everyone wants to achieve happiness. For an athlete, for instance, his idea of ultimate happiness is to win a gold medal in the Olympics.

    For the glory of a gold medal and a few minutes on the podium with your national flag going up while they play your national anthem, you deprive yourself of the pleasure of nightlife, relationships, fun, going out with friends or even your partner. You will subject yourself to a special and stringent diet, train eight hours a day, sleep early and not stay up. You will stay away from friends and curtail many activities because you have to train and work hard. You have to push and discipline yourself.

    You really have to transform yourself and change your schedule in order to get your body ready in the next four to eight years in the hope that when the day of the Olympics arrives you will be selected to participate.

    Thank you Rinpoche for this inspiring and motivating article. People can say many things about us but we will know very well how we are and how we are. We should not react to the comments people make on us.

    However, I do agree that we have to contemplate on what people say about us. If what they say about us is true, especially our bad qualities, we have to change. If it is not true, we just have to move on and ignore the comments.

    In “Compassion Conquers All”, Tsem Rinpoche shows how through the practice of “The Eight Verses of Mind Transformation”, this wish for others to be happy can engender a state of mind of supreme love, compassion and altruism. This is the mind of Bodhicitta that wishes every sentient being to be free from every suffering and to enjoy real lasting happiness, and is determined to realise this wish by achieving the state of mind of real ultimate happiness and peace (that is free from every suffering) first, and then helping all beings attain it. This state of mind of ultimate peace and real lasting happiness is called Enlightenment or Full Awakening, where one achieves the qualities of omniscience, love and ability so as to have the power and ability to help others reach this same state.

    John Eaton Calthorpe Blofeld (John Blofeld) (1913 – 1987) was a renowned writer of Chinese culture, Taoism, Zen Buddhism, and Mahayana Buddhist tradition. His literary endeavours had helped in introducing Buddhism to the Western world and inspired many to follow his path on the journey of spiritual discoveries.

    During his lifetime, John Blofeld had travelled widely around China and other countries, visited sacred mountains and monasteries, and met with hermits, sages and great Buddhist masters of various traditions. As his popularity grew, he used his fame to inspire younger writers to follow his path and helped to launch their career by writing forewords or providing constructive feedback to their maiden literary effort. Those who had the privilege to be acquainted with this extraordinary man, remembered his generosity, warmth, and sincerity. Even today, his writing and unique experiences continue to inspire others to the path of spirituality and give insight to the world of China when the refined Chinese civilisation was omnipresent

    Following our habituated way of thinking, the source of whatever happiness we seek from marriage appears to be the picture of an ideal partner. In fact, even as we embark on a long-term relationship with our partners, we already have expectations and projections on our partner. We expect to be happy when our partner conforms to our own set of norms, way of thinking, and expectations. In order to correct this mistaken view, we need to look deeply into ourselves and see that happiness does not come from holding mistaken projections and expectations. In fact, when these expectations and projections are unfulfilled, they are likely to cause us disappointment, pain, and anguish instead.

    Tsarchen Losal Gyatso (1502 – 1566 CE) was a famous master and the founder of the Tsarpa lineage of the Sakya tradition centred at Dar Drangmoche Monastery in the central Tsang province of Tibet.

    The great Tsarchen Losal Gyatso is the 21st lineage holder of the Vajrayogini tantric tradition stemming from the Mahasiddha Naropa himself. In fact, by engaging in Vajrayogini as his main practice, Tsarchen Losal Gyatso gained high realisations and went on to have several important visionary experiences associated with her. Due to his high realisations, Tsarchen also beheld pure visions of Padmasambhava, Vajrayogini, Chakrasamvara, Kalachakra, Yamantaka, other tantric deities and masters.

    This is a very interesting article to know that Mongolian astrology is closely related to Buddhism. Some of us might think astrology is a very superstitious practice but it is practised in Buddhism.

    From the scripture, our body body parts are related to different planets. In a way, it means our body and the universe are in fact one. Therefore, we should respect our environment because if our mother nature has lost its balance, our health will be affected as well.

    The most recent celebrity that was reported to have shown some interest in Buddhism is Katy Perry. People often think being a celebrity is wonderful, but behind all the smiles and the beauty, there is much suffering and pain… We have seen it many times, and celebrities who fail to cope with the stress and public pressure often take up dangerous habits or suicidal. I’m not claiming that I know of Katy Perry’s life and difficulties, but as long as we are all in samsara, we are all subjected to suffering.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.
~Tsem Rinpoche

  • What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.

    What the meat industry figured out is that you don't need healthy animals to make a profit.
    Sick animals are more profitable... farms calculate how close to death they can keep animals without killing them. That's the business model. How quickly they can be made to grow, how tightly they can be packed, how much or how little can they eat, how sick they can get without dying... We live in a world in which it's conventional to treat an animal like a block of wood. ~ Jonathan Safran Foer
