2022-08-26 Concern for All Beings: Plant-Based Eating - A conversation with Tara Brach and Tricycle‘s editor-in-chief, James Shaheen. - 58:09
Tara Brach
A vegetarian diet, while encouraged in most schools of Buddhism, isn’t a requirement of the Buddhist path. But there are powerful spiritual opportunities in embracing a plant-based diet. Following a vegetarian or plant-based diet is one way to practice compassion, reduce harm, and recognize our interconnectedness with all living beings and the earth itself. So what does the dharma say about vegetarianism? How might plant-based eating support our spiritual practice?
