Vegetarianism
A Buddhist View
Bodhipaksa

How does what you eat affect you and your world? Is there a connection between vegetarianism and living a spiritual life?

A trained vet and happy vegan, Bodhipaksa answers all of these questions and more. Tackling issues such as genetically modifed vegetables and modern ways of producing food, he dispels widespread myths and reflects upon the diets dominant in the contemporary West. In comparison, he considers the diets of wandering monks in ancient India and the diet of the Buddha himself.

By considering why people eat meat and relating this to Buddhist ethics, Bodhipaksa explores habits and the possibility of change. He takes a positive view of the benefits of vegetarianism, and shows practically how to maintain a healthy and balanced vegan or vegetarian lifestyle.

    Since I was a child I have been known as the one who catches spiders and puts them outside, rather than stepping on them…I caught a rainbow trout one time, and put it back. I cannot kill an animal, so why do I eat meat? This book helped me to see a much bigger picture. Gentle and compassionate. That’s how I want to live my life too.
