第二章 佛教支持素食主義的論據 8

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

Chapter 2   Buddhist arguments for vegetarianism

8.  Now let us consider the implications of these five points. Avoiding the complexities of the modern food processing and production industries for the time being, let us look at the simple version of it as it would have existed at the time of the Buddha and how it may still exist in some developing countries and perhaps even in some rural areas in the West. Let’s say that during the Buddha’s time some monks were invited to the house of a devout family for a meal and that they were served, amongst other things, meat.

第二章 佛教支持素食主義的論據

8.  現有讓我們考慮這五點的含意。我們暫時避開複雜的現代食物加工和生產工業,看看佛陀時期食物行業的簡單模式,這模式可能仍然在一些發展中國家,甚至西方的一些郊區出現。比方說在佛陀的時期,一些比丘獲邀到一個虔誠的信眾家中用餐,主人家以肉和其他食物來款待他們。
