Download Food of Bodhisattvas: Buddhist Teachings on Abstaining from by Shabkar,Padmakara Translation Group PDF

By Shabkar,Padmakara Translation Group

in response to the lessons of the Buddha, this e-book bargains the main compelling and impassioned indictment of meat-eating to be present in Tibetan literature and is pertinent to someone attracted to vegetarianism as an ethical or religious factor. The Buddha's teachings exhibit how harmful conduct may be tested and reworked progressively from inside. the purpose isn't really to repress one's wish for meat and animal items via strength of will, yet to improve heartfelt compassion and sensitivity to the pain of animals, in order that the need to take advantage of and feed on them clearly dissolves.

There are texts awarded right here. One is an excerpt from Shabkar's Book of Marvels, including quotations from the Buddhist scriptures and the lessons of masters of Tibetan Buddhism that argue opposed to the intake of meat, with Shabkar's statement. the second one, the Nectar of Immortality, is Shabkar's discourse at the value of constructing compassion for animals.
