Lady Dalai Lama: Sir Paul McCartney Takes Over Buddhism

by | 17th, December 2008

SIR Paul McCartney is “riffing” on life as a vegetarian, life as the driving force of the Beatles Political Party and how he wrote the lyrics to all the Beatles best songs, tunes like Baby You can Drive My Cab, Back In The CCCP and Farthing Lane.

Sir Paul’s sole regret is that John Lennon is not here to agree.

Now Sir Paul is reminding the Dalai Lama what it is to be a Buddhist and how wrong it is to eat meat.

In an interview with Prospect magazine, MCCartney says:

“I found out he was not a vegetarian, so I wrote to him saying ‘Forgive me for pointing this out, but if you eat animals then there is some suffering somewhere along the line’.”

The Dalai Lama, overjoyed at the chance to exchange words with the creator of Go Back, replied:

“He replied saying that his doctors had told him he needed it, so I wrote back saying they were wrong.”

Sir Paul knows better then the Dalai Lama and the doctors. As reported, Sir Paul also know better than the medics who treated former Blink 182 Drummer Travis Barker, via:

The former Blink 182 drummer — who has been a strict vegetarian for most of his life — was advised to change his diet after suffering third degree burns to his legs and torso when the jet he was travelling in crashed on take off in Columbia, South Carolina, last month.

He said: “I need protein from food rather than just protein supplements. I changed my diet. I would do anything I possibly could if they said like, ‘There’s a possibility you might heal faster if you do eat meat or just change your eating habits.’ So I did. I don’t regret it at all, I feel so much better.”

Hats of Sir Paul for being an expert is so many things, including marriage….
