So after getting to know Buddhism a little better and following its principles for a while, I thought what next.
And then it occurred to me…if I truly want to be kind, forgiving and at peace with all beings, it has to also show in what I eat. To the extent it is true that our diet makes us what we are, we have some control over our appearance, countenance, emotions, etc.
And don’t forget Karma, “Do unto others as you would have them do to you.” says the Bible
If I kill a being for my food and then it is but natural that I get killed someday on the same pretext.
