I have been reading the comments concerning eating meat or not-My brother was under the impression that being Buddhist meant you could not eat meat-I asked a friend who goes to Japan several times a year and stays with the monks-He said no because they eat what is offered to them by the people of the area. I asked my lama and he said H.H. Sakya Trizin eats meat. I then continue on feeling like ok it is alright to eat meat but then the issue of killing no other living being enters in-So is it just one of those individual decisions? Is there anything written down that actually states something about diet? If so, what is it? Sorry this is so long-
