      Since Buddhists frown on tattoos, I suggest the Dalai Lama should get a permanent tattoo of Calvin urinating on the word TATTOOS.

      Roger von Oech

      Tim: That's a good one. Oh the cosmic irony!

      Randy Brewster

      The D-L always looks so happy. Why not a smiley face tattoo? That would be so cool. You'd smile every time you saw him.

      Jorge Castillo

      I believe that the infinity symbol is what fits best: he will reincarnate infinite times; he "sells" the idea of infinite love. Infinity means the endless, the eternal, the limitless, ...

      What if he combines the infinity permanent tattoo with a temporary one? He could use a word in Esperanto every month for a different message: peace, love, happiness, etc. So he could proclaim a month of Infinite Love, of Infinite Peace, Infinite Joy, etc.

      Always fun this kind of exercises! Thanks!

      How about a swastika? Before you jump to conclusions, hear me out. Before the Nazis appropriated this symbol in the 1920s, the swastika was used for thousands of years in the Hindu, Buddhist, and Jain traditions. It has also been used by the Chinese, Navajos, and the Celts. The term "swastika" is derived from Sanskrit "svasti," meaning "well-being" (See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swastika).

      Only someone with the moral authority of the Dalai Lama would be able to help purge this respected eastern symbol of the evil and hateful associations created by the Nazis.

      How's that for "out of the box" thinking?

      Alex von Oech

      He should get the Bill Murray line from "Caddyshack":

      "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness."

      so he'll have that going for him...which'll be nice.

      Roger von Oech

      Randy: : - )

      Jorge: The DL would become an ongoing and changing "message" bearer.

      Rachel: That's a very different thought. But you're right about the DL's moral authority: no one would confuse him for a skinhead.

      Alex: One of the all-time great deadpan lines in comedy.

      Mark McGuinness

      But Roger, all things are temporary...

      Ranen

      "I Love Mom", "In God we trust" or maybe get a daily-changing tattoo with RSS feed from http://dailytattoo.blogspot.com/ .....

      I'd like to see the word "yes" tattooed on his arm... Yes!

      Roger von Oech

      Mark: "All things are temporary" as a tattoo!

      Peter: Nice kitty!

      Ranen: Thanks for the link.

      Patti: Yes, indeed!

      Charles Meyrick

      In keeping with the cosmic irony initially suggested, it might be more tasteful to have a tattoo that says "Leviticus 19:28"...

      Roger von Oech

      Charles: "Leviticus 19:28": Which the New American Standard Bible (©1995) translates as:

      'You shall not make any cuts in your body for the dead nor make any tattoo marks on yourselves: I am the LORD.

      Thanks! (Nice irony.)

      he could use white ink which would make it invisible unless up close.

      Or maybe we should all just tatoo an image of the Dalai Lama's example on our own minds.

      he should get the international world reknowned symbol for peace the peace sign..
