“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725

Lola is one of my favorite songs. If you read up on the history of the lyrics (wiki, possibly?) it's essentially a true story (except the guy wasn't too enthralled).

:offtopic:

Bringing it back to seafood... I guess some o' the men find Lola a bit fishy.

Peggy Lee had a wonderful voice. The "crikey" was of the " I must hear that " variety.

what's wrong with eating meat?

Postby username_5 » Thu Aug 26, 2010 4:31 am

Please answer the question without referring to another's words including the Buddha's. As a new Buddhist I understand the first precept as follows: Abstain from killing. I don't understand why this applies to animals. It is my understanding that even monks under the Buddha were allowed to eat meat as long as they didn't kill the animal and the animal wasn't killed just for the monk.

Why is it a problem if a Buddhist enjoys a BigMac? What adverse effect does it have on the individual doing the eating? Again, please answer in your own words instead of falling back on someone else's words. What I am trying to understand is what real world harm befalls the practitioner from eating and enjoying the meat of dead animals.

My parents, relatives, friends who have passed away could be reborn as animals. My parents, relatives, friends in my previous lives could have been animals. Therefore, i don't eat meat.

"Beautifully taught is the Lord's Dhamma, immediately apparent, timeless, of the nature of a personal invitation, progressive, to be attained by the wise, each for himself." Anguttara Nikaya V.332
