第六章 佛教傳統中的肉類 11

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

Chapter 6  Meat in the buddhist tradition

11.  Numerous ancient and modern commentaries on the Bodhicariyavatara linger with tear jerking emotion on Santideva’s aspiration to willingly give his life for others. The practice of “exchanging self with others” (paratma parivartana) forms an important element within the practices of all schools of Tibetan Buddhism. I won’t labor the point because I think you can see where this is going. Is there not a serious contradiction between the Tibetan Buddhist strong and persistent emphasis on compassion and the fact that they eat meat? I think there is. So Tibetan Buddhism may not be narrow and self-centered but it could be argued that it is hypocritical and inconsistent concerning meat eating.

第六章  佛教傳統中的肉類

11.  很多古今對《入菩薩行論》(Bodhicariyavatara) 的註釋,都是感情真摯地環繞寂天 (Santideva) 捨己為人的抱負。「自他交換」(paratma parivartana) 是所有藏傳佛教派別的重要元素。我不用探討這一點,因為我想你能看到這是怎麼回事。在藏傳佛教徒一貫強烈着重的慈悲和他們吃肉的事實之間,不是存有一個嚴重的矛盾嗎?我想是有的。或許藏傳佛教不是狹隘和自我中心,但可以證明它在吃肉方面是虛偽和前後矛盾的。
