A (31)-18Compassion teaches us not to kill.  Compassion paves the way for respecting the right for all creatures great and small to live.  Buddhists choose to become vegetarian out of respect for all life and to observe the First Buddhist Precept of no killing (check out Be Kind Be Vego).  Vegetarianism is also consistent with the Buddhist concepts of interrelatedness and rebirth.  It also has a greater impact on ensuring the sustainability of mother Earth and the health of the human race.

Whatever your motivation may be, we invite you to explore a way to be kind to others, to yourself, as well as to mother Earth; through eating the vegetarian way.
