You can offer weapons to protectors too.

Yes.

Guns, knives, swords, canons, grenades, anything really that is capable of harm.

Who would do? Why all Tibetans. Why would they do it? Because Dharmapālas, like any army, need weapons.

Nothing unusual about a shopkeeper in Katmandhu having a picture of HHDL.

eheh, i get different reactions when i think from different angles. could be at least for the locals a good reminder to look at the dalai lama when lusting for booze and through the image of the dalai lama lift up theyre minds and decide not to buy. :juggling:

So you found samsara? But isn't that everywhere already? :tongue: The HHDL poking his head into samsara is a good thing! :smile:

I noticed most of the liquor shops around here have portraits of lineage heads.

I think it is funny.

People will drink their booze regardless of what Buddhism says.

Well Ven Indrajala, I have seen portraits of the late Mother Teresa, sometimes sitting next to Hindu deities in Indian restaurants but I don't know enough to assume that the restaurant owners are necessarily Catholics.... I know of some who have HHDL's portrait but they're not Buddhists. People put up portraits of so and so for varied reasons and sometimes religion isn't the only one nor even its reason...
