Dalai Lama Gets His Gun

Readers Digest interviews the Dalai Lama

RD: Do you have a favourite animal?

Dalai Lama: Birds maybe. I feed birds, peaceful birds. I’m a nonviolent person, but if a hawk comes when I’m feeding birds, I lose my temper and get my air rifle.

RD: You have an air rifle?

Dalai Lama: Yes, although I shoot only to scare the hawks.
