It is bad to think: I am a vegetarian and you are not, therefore I am a better Buudhist than you are.

I call it: "My god can beat up your god" mentality ("My practice is better than your practice", or things like that).

It is never OK to separate the practitioners: us, vegetarian Buddhist vs. them non-vegetarian Buddhist.

It is good to do: I believe that being a vegetarian is consistant with my Buddhist practice, therefore I am a vegetarian.

It is OK to do: I don't think beging a vegetarian will make any difference to my daily practice, therefore I am not one.

Buddha begs for food and he eats anything is offered, from a rich family or from a poor family, vegatrian or not.

It is very costly to be a vegetarian in the U.S.
