    ...keeping the Dalai Lama's hand warm! Touching the Dalai Lama is supposed to bring good luck.

    DO NOT ask what the bulge under the coat is!

    Is it just me or does the Dalai Lama seem to never age?

    Uh, yes. You might say it "dispenses" medicine if needed.

    That's really neat! How did he get to meet the Dalai Lama?

    He's one of those guys that you picture looking no different from birth to grave.

    By the way, if he's shaking hands with the Dalai Lama (and is allowed to carry his medical device with him) he must be a pretty important individual. Or very well thought of. Congratulations on raising him 'right'.

    The Dalai Lama has actually said that if someone is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back at them.
