I don't want to get into a big argument of who is right or wrong but my Lamas eat meat so what am I do make of that?
Secondly, I don't like food of any kind, vegatables, meat or anything, but I know my body needs nourishment of some sort. I do have health issues that are serious ones and after many months of liquid only, I have had to return to some kind of a meat, not much but we talk about beef, what about chicken or fish, my body is enjoying the fish I am putting in it so what now? Someone wrote that being a vegatarian is expensive, that is correct and some don't have it to do as extensively as some dedicated vegatarians I know.
In the truest sense, what we put in our bodies is indicative as to how our immune system works. I don't want to be taking vitamins and all of that as that is expensive too. Remember Buddha after six years of practice realized that not nourishing the body was a waste as it does great damage to the body so what does one do? We shouldn't be critizing each other on this subject as that only causes bad feelings. Why do you think animals and fish and chicken and others foods were put here on this earth, it was for mankind. Someone please answer me on the fish and chicken issue. Thanks
