I'm asking because you don't seem to be aware of the massive threat they pose.
If it sits there for days, it will pump dangerous bacteria into your body and make you ill.
If you're ill, you won't be able to work, and sustain yourself, and become a burden for thecommunity, then you live of taxes they paid.
I don't see how that is what a responsible Buddhist would do.Of course would higiene the body to the tick don't proliferate.
I don't understand what you're trying to say.
Are you saying somebody who is clean won't get ticks?

If your intent is to remove them without pulling their heads off I think it's clear that you didn't intend to kill them. In short, your observance of the precept will remain intact. Metta.
The female ticks can walk trough the body and put more eggs, when eggs hatch you get more ticks. So higiene in the body and in the rooms or places is also good to prevent this insects from proliferating deseases.

What exactly are you trying to prove ? Don't justify your action by referring to Buddhadhamma , because it isnt anything to do with Buddhadhamma.

Just let it go...
First of all, enough with the aversion stuff. It has no place here. Secondly, this thread is already going in circles, repeating itself, and it is offering little that has not already been covered in the flea thread.Annapurna wrote:I only just started it a few hours ago and you already want to close another thread of mine. It's nice that you ask though.
Please leave it open.
You don't have to monitor this thread, Tilt, if you feel aversion.
Pretty much the same ground that has been covered, but if it ticks you off to have it closed, it'll stay open. That does not bug me.Hoo wrote:Leave the thread open, Tilt. I'm Buddhist, live in the heart of tick country and am interested in hearing as many differing views as may present themselves because I have this problem as well. I also have decreased immunity due to my chemo treatment which heightens my interest.
I find it hard to believe that this thread is only about 3-4 hours old and you're asking if it's done. It's not like it's taking up space on the shelf that's needed. Give it a cuple of days for people to even see it, reply if they have one, etc.
