Re: 'The ZEN of EVERYTHING! Podcast' with Jundo & Kirk is ON THE AIR!

..., also ignorance related to not knowing where does the meat come from..) There is ignorance and then there is willful ignorance. I’ve heard stories of children not knowing where milk and eggs come from, for example, which is entirely possible. It’s hard to imagine or accept that this could be th...

Re: Ten Precepts

Fields are equally precious as a million cattle- When tilled to produce carrots and peas and broccoli, numberless lives are lost, lives no less precious than that of farm animals- Just a random slaughterhouse in Belgium, (video) https://m.facebook.com/AnimalRightsNL/videos/743661269743989/?refsrc=h...

Re: What's wrong with.... (the "dharmavegan" topic)

The discussion in this thread is, as I see it, about how the consequences of an individual’s adherence and commitment to the Buddhist precepts might affect the lives and well being of othe...

Re: Ten Precepts

Thanks for starting this topic Avisitor. Precepts are generally neglected or taken too lightly by western buddhist practitioners, especially Zen Buddhist, even by those who take the precepts. Right now I am reading Being Upright by Reb Anderson. It is about the Bodhisattva precepts. I am busy this w...
