Protecting the Lives of Helpless Beings: The Udamwara Lotus Flower

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.

Description

Geshe Thubten Soepa offers a detailed explanation of what Shakyamuni Buddha said about eating meat as presented in the Buddhist sutras of the Hinayana and Mahayana vehicles including tantra. The explanation begins with an extensive look at the various sutras in which the Buddha discusses why Buddhists should not eat animals, includes a question and answer section addressing topics such as tantric practice questions and whether animal owners should neuter their animals and ends with a discussion of why eating meat or otherwise exploiting animals is completely contrary to the core Buddhist practice of compassion. His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, read through Geshe Soepa's explanation from cover to cover and said "It is well written. It would be nice if more equally useful texts were written for people to read." This is a must-read from Buddhists who wish to support their practice of and advocate for vegetarianism.
