第二章 佛教支持素食主義的論據 2

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

Chapter 2   Buddhist arguments for vegetarianism

2. That true adherence to the Precept goes beyond the individual’s direct physical involvement in harming or killing is clear from the Buddha’s instructions that someone who takes the Dhamma seriously should “not kill, encourage (samadapati) others to kill, approve of (samamuñño hoti) killing, or speak in praise of (vannam bhasati) killing” (Anguttara Nikaya V,306). Here the Buddha says very clearly that one should take into account even the indirect and distant implications of one’s actions. So this is the second point – (2) Trying to influence and encourage others not to harm or kill living beings and to be kind to them would be consistent with the first Precept.

第二章  佛教支持素食主義的論據

2.  真正遵從不殺戒不僅指個人不直接參與傷害或殺害,佛陀的教導明確指出,認真奉行佛法的人不應「殺生、鼓勵 (samadapati) 其他人殺生、贊成 (samamuñño hoti) 殺生、或讚揚 (vannam bhasati) 殺生」 (《增支部》V, 306)。佛陀在這處清楚說明,人甚至應考慮個人行為的間接或長遠影響。因此,這是第二點 — (2) 嘗試影響或鼓勵其他人不要傷害或殺害眾生,並對它們仁慈是符合不殺戒的。
