Buddhists in Thailand are expected to meditate in humid conditions and ignore mosquitos which bite them. Not allowed to kill a living thing.
I used a mousetrap to kill a mouse last night. It is the first time I have had to do it. He was destroying some of our possessions by gnawing through. It was a grisly find to see the dead mouse in the morning. I still feel a little sick. Then burying it in the back yard.
Sometimes you gotta be cruel to be kind?
