The mosquito-free device for Buddhist monk

One of the most important doctrints in buddhism is not to kill living things. For this reason, the buddhist monks don't kill mosquitos. But mosquitoes interfere mental discipline. I try to solve these problems by combing the offering spirit of buddhism(供養) with digital device.
This lamp emits carbon dioxide in the lower part to lure the mosquitos, and it has fluid inside the silicon in the upper part. Mosquitos fly away after sucking this fluids. Using this device, the buddhists are able to give mercy to the mosquitos and prevent distraction that interfer to mental training.
