Our daily bread

His Eminence Tsem Tulku Rinpoche strongly supports causes that are close to his heart. Rinpoche blogged about the need to go Vegetarian and many hours have been spent preparing the content to promote this way of life. Rinpoche shared with us 50 vegetarian and vegan recipes mostly with videos to help anyone who wants to start eating compassionately and spiritually. Videos about how badly animals are treated and killed are also featured on Rinpoche’s blog to create the awareness that every time we order meat as a meal, a sentient being has to suffer for our taste buds.

Never underestimate every sentient being in existence; be kind to them and don’t use them. As a monk, I am sharing this with you. It is better to not eat meat. There is no reason to eat meat. Just save animals in this day and age. If you don’t kill animals to eat, then don’t let others take on the karma to kill for you so you can eat. You buy meat, you allow the killing.

But if you don’t kill animals, then don’t eat them.

I hate hunting, hate killingÖbut love meat, because I DON’T KILL THE ANIMALS, so there is no negative karma..it’s okay others kill for me!?!

How can you chant Om Mani Peme Hung on one hand and on the other hand eat slaughtered flesh? Don’t eat animals.

Buddha may have deemed it impractical, but environment and circumstances change. We have so much more variety of food than before. In the Theravadan tradition, Buddha never insisted, but Buddha eats meat and it benefits the dead animal. When we eat meat, it’s not the same.

Being spiritual means taking on harm and damage onto oneself. With that attitude then we can gain attainments. So don’t eat animals. Ultimately I wouldn’t mind letting my body degenerate somewhat if it would help animals by not eating them. Om Mani Peme Hung. Yes, it is healthy to be vegans. Over 800 hundred million people in India alone are pure vegetarian and they are fine.

If you can’t even stand a pin pricking you, how can you eat animals that were butchered? Go vegetarian and make less animals suffer due to our taste buds. Even in eating, we should be spiritual.

Here are some videos showing the harm towards animals caused by meat-eating:

Those of you who wish to commit to vegetarianism for one day, one month, one year or forever, please contact my PAs Beng Kooi or Jean Ai. Let me know. I will offer a ‘butterlamp’, incense and include you in my pujas of that day for your wishes. I wish to offer pujas and prayers that day for the person who submits any form of commitment toward vegetarianism. It would be my honour to do prayers for that person(s) on that day.

Tsem Tulku
