A vegan feast from southern Italy
Thanks Sujatin, to share this with us just before New Year. All those suffering of animals, nature and of people in the southern countries.I hope your message will reach much people. What can we do to reach more people with this message ? I see daily very much people eating much animals. I don't have the impression that my vegetarian diët inspires people around me...

Christopher Titmus: Why become a vegetarian or vegan:
East and West, Buddhists have often failed to recognise the importance of a vegetarian or vegan diet as a real contribution to the reduction of suffering for animals, birds and fish. Many people assume Buddhists are vegetarian as part of their philosophy of kindness and compassion for all creatures. Sadly, this is far from the truth.
Buddhists, who are vegetarian or vegan, are a small minority including monks and nuns. There is certainly much emphasis in the Buddhist world of respect and kindness for all sentient beings but there has been neglect of this ethic in terms of diet. There are voices in the Theravada, Tibetan Mahayana and Zen tradition, as well as in the West, campaigning for people to adopt a vegetarian or vegan diet out of compassion for all creatures.

I think it would be great to post the meal prayers on the Triratna Sangha notice board. It would be deligtful for more people to have the opportunity to enjoy them.
