Ayurveda (science of life)Source: Ancient Science of Life: Vaidyavallabha: An Authoritative Work on Ayurveda Therapeutics
Gūtha (गूथ) is a Sanskrit technical term referring to “offensive excreta/exudates from wound”, and is dealt with in the 17th-century Vaidyavallabha written by Hastiruci.—The Vaidyavallabha is a work which deals with the treatment and useful for all 8 branches of Ayurveda. The text Vaidyavallabha (mentioning gūtha) has been designed based on the need of the period of the author, availability of drugs during that time, disease manifesting in that era, socio-economical-cultural-familial-spiritual-aspects of that period Vaidyavallabha.
Āyurveda (आयुर्वेद, ayurveda) is a branch of Indian science dealing with medicine, herbalism, taxology, anatomy, surgery, alchemy and related topics.

Shaktism (Shakta philosophy)Source: Google Books: Manthanabhairavatantram
Gūtha (गूथ) refers to “faeces”.—The Kumārikākhaṇḍa similarly says that the true Kaula yogi is one “who is adorned with all the ornaments or who wears red clothes, or even one who wears whatever he pleases”. The same verse is found in the Kubjikāmatatantra but there we find the variant: “whether he is dirty or white (i.e. clean) adorned with clothes and ornaments”. The distinction between ‘clean’ and ‘dirty’ is still maintained amongst modern Nātha yogis who may choose the path of the ‘clean’ ascetic who performs ritual ablutions or one who does not. One is reminded of the satirical representation of the Bhairavācārya by the 11th century Kashmiri, Kṣemendra, who says of him that he is “smeared with faeces” (gūtha-lipta).
Shakta (शाक्त, śākta) or Shaktism (śāktism) represents a tradition of Hinduism where the Goddess (Devi) is revered and worshipped. Shakta literature includes a range of scriptures, including various Agamas and Tantras, although its roots may be traced back to the Vedas.
Mahayana (major branch of Buddhism)Source: Wisdom Library: Maha Prajnaparamita Sastra
Gūtha (गूथ) refers to “excrement”, according Mahāprajñāpāramitāśāstra (chapter XLVI).—There are also Pretas who emit fire from their mouth (ulkāmukha): flying butterflies throw themselves into this fire, and the Pretas eat them. There are also Pretas who eat excrement (gūtha), spit (śleṣman), pus and blood (pūyaśoṇita), the water from laundry, who feed on oblations (śraddhabhoktṛ) or who devour the afterbirth (garbhamalāhāra). There are all kinds of starving Pretas of this kind.
Mahayana (महायान, mahāyāna) is a major branch of Buddhism focusing on the path of a Bodhisattva (spiritual aspirants/ enlightened beings). Extant literature is vast and primarely composed in the Sanskrit language. There are many sūtras of which some of the earliest are the various Prajñāpāramitā sūtras.
