Buddha Said, One Should Not Kill A Living Being

"One should not kill a living being, nor cause it to be killed, nor should one incite another to kill. Do not injure any being, either strong or weak, in the world."

"Eating meat destroys the attitude of great compassion."

"All beings tremble before violence. All fear death, all love life. See yourself in others. Then whom can you hurt? What harm can you do?"

— Buddha

    Dear Jennie, I read your 7/12/2015 comments on Buddhism. If you go to http://www.buddhisma2z.com and look up Animals, Animal Release, Animal Sacrifice,
    Blood Sports, Human-Animal Interaction, Hunting,Non-killing Days, and Vegaterianism you will find some more info on Buddhism and animal life. The link http://www.bhantedhammika.net/to-eat-or-not-to-eat-meat will give you a detailed account of vegaterianism in Buddhist history. You are welcome to use any of this info. Let me know if you do.
    Regards, S. Dhammika

      Dear S. Dhammika, thank you so very much for reading my post and offering your helpful references. I will read them all, and will likely integrate some of the information to try to offer more clarity and conciseness on this topic of Buddhism and animals and vegetarianism. I will let you know before posting. Much appreciation for writing and your links. Best wishes.
