9 of 9 people found the following review helpful By Jane Easton on 5 April 2011
Format: Paperback
I became vegan before becoming Buddhist - the two seemed inextricably linked with their celebration of life and promotion of compassion for all beings and the environment. Imagine my shock to find meat-eating Buddhists. I'm not talking about subsistence peasants in Tibet but relatively wealthy Western and Eastern practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism. Whatever the spirituality or philosophy, most human beings have a 'bodyswerve' tendency when our comfort zones are threatened and we are good at finding excuses to keep on doing what we want:o) So we need kindly but honest explanations about how and why we can do better. It was deeply reassuring to find Bodhipaksha's short, uncomplicated book that explained why eating animal products isn't really a good idea if one aspires to a Buddhist - or indeed, any kind of compassionate life. He trained as a vet so knows what he is talking about. There are other great Buddhist veggie writers, such as Norm Phelps and Will Tuttle and if you are interested in finding out more, check them out too. But Bodhipaksa is an excellent starting place. I like the new cover design also!

Very thought provoking book and has led to me making changes to my lifestyle. The insanity of world food production leaves me feeling incredulous.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
great little book on Buddhist philosophy and vegan/vegetarian living, the author is very concise and clear and not at all pushy.
