Product description

How does what we eat affect us? How does it affect our world? What are the benefits of giving up meat? Is there a connection between vegetarianism and living a spiritual life? In this volume Bodhipaksa seeks to answer these questions. As a trained vet he can reveal the suffering of animals in the farming industry. As a practising Buddhist he can identify the ethical consequences of inflicting such suffering. Through the Buddhist teaching of interconnectedness he lays bare the effects that our eating habits have upon us, upon animals, and upon the environment. He concludes that by becoming vegetarian we can affirm life in a clear and immediate way, and experience a greater sense of contentment, harmony and happiness.
