第一章 古印度的素食主義 6

Shravasti Dhammika, To EAT OR NOT TO EAT MEAT: A BUDDHIST REFLECTION

Chapter 1   Vegetarianism in ancient India

6. There are several places in the Vinaya, the rules for Buddhist monks and nuns, where eating meat is mentioned or implied, for example where it says particular types of meat such as lion, snake, hyena, should not be consumed, implying that other types can be (Vinaya I, 218-8). It also recommends meat broth as a medicine (Vinaya I,206). In the section on medicine in the Vinaya it says that monks are allowed to take the oil, fat and tallow of fish, crocodiles, pigs, bears and other animals for medicinal reasons (Vinaya I,200).

6. 戒律是佛教比丘和比丘尼須遵守的規則,它在幾處地方提到或暗示吃肉,例如獅子、蛇和鬣狗的肉不應吃,這意味着可以吃其他的類別的肉 (《律藏》I, 218-8)。戒律也建議用肉湯作為藥物 (《律藏》I, 206)。在有關藥物的章節,戒律提到指比丘們可使用魚、鱷魚、豬、熊和其他動物的油和脂肪,以作醫藥用途 (《律藏》I, 200)。
