第六章 佛教傳統中的肉類 15

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

Chapter 6  Meat in the buddhist tradition

15.  Pious Burmese would never slaughter a large animal (cow or buffalo) but they think that killing small ones like fish, ducks or chickens is okay or that it only creates a manageable amount of negative vipaka. But they are happy to let the Muslims provide them with their beef and mutton and despise them for doing so. So it would seem that meat eating is an issue that all Buddhist schools are yet to intelligently, consistently and compassionately come to terms with.

第六章  佛教傳統中的肉類

15.   虔誠的緬甸人從不會屠宰體型大的動物 (母牛或水牛),但他們認為屠宰體型小的,例如魚、鴨或雞等則沒有問題,這樣產生的惡果能在控制範圍之內。他們樂意讓穆斯林為自己提供牛肉和羊肉,但同時又因此而蔑視他們。就吃肉這個議題,似乎所有佛教派別都未能理性、一致和慈悲為懷地面對。
