HHDL: Shoo, Don't Slap

The Dalai Lama has told a German TV interviewer that when mosquitoes bite him it is hard to follow the Buddhist injunction against taking life.

“When I’m trying to sleep, their loud buzzing and their bites really annoy me,” he said. And by the second bite he becomes irritated and tries to shoo them away. (Times of India -- June 25, 2005)
