according to the lessons of the Buddha, this publication bargains the main compelling and impassioned indictment of meat-eating to be present in Tibetan literature and is pertinent to someone attracted to vegetarianism as an ethical or non secular factor. The Buddha's teachings express how harmful behavior might be tested and reworked progressively from inside. the purpose isn't to repress one's wish for meat and animal items by means of strength of will, yet to increase heartfelt compassion and sensitivity to the agony of animals, in order that the will to take advantage of and feed on them obviously dissolves.

There are texts awarded right here. One is an excerpt from Shabkar's Book of Marvels, which includes quotations from the Buddhist scriptures and the lessons of masters of Tibetan Buddhism that argue opposed to the intake of meat, with Shabkar's remark. the second one, the Nectar of Immortality, is Shabkar's discourse at the value of constructing compassion for animals.
