Translation:
1. Someone asked me regarding the benefits of going vegetarian ?
Answer: I am not sure how much it would benefit you, but it definitely benefited me. Nevertheless, if you are concerned with animal killing, then perhaps it can help.

2. Then, how does Vegetarian-ing helps you?
Answer: I felt fuller after meal.

3. There are so many poultry farm around, and they are meant to be killed, why waste ?
Answer: Since they are in abundance, what is waste? If you don't mind, wait for the fish to die then only eat it. Don't waste.

4. Too much of poultry animal would bring imbalance to our environment, causing damage to the ecosystem.
Answer : That is why we have WWI and WWII. If you intend to be anti-vegetarianism, you must also understand that those wars are inevitable. Why condemn George Bush ?

5. My mind and body is very pure, why do I need to be vegetarian ?
Answer: Saint no need to eat. Keep the money and donate it for other who needs it.

6. Vegetarian food is very expensive.

Answer: Please be fair, you cannot dislike me for being vegetarian.

The veg blog..

let me tell you the real meaning behind vegetarianism ...
It simply is ..... Don't overdo something. It act as reminder for many people to realise that don't spend too much time eating or enjoying... life is short and death is reality.

Half vegetarianism like me might have some risk of consequences such as anaemia and etc.. Hard core meat eater would suffer consequences of other ilnesses. In today's society, many things had been automated, thus human need not require to be too strong. For someone to work in office,it actually don't need so much energy.. Many poor people are vegetarian, and they have no problem with health.

Thus, if you are talking about health, it is not an issue, non-vegan by right are more healthy because of the complete nutrient able to obtain. The real issue is spiritual practice. Unless you have problem with my spiritual practice, then there is no problem at all.

I find the following article friendly..

Myths of vegetarianism

Especially the portion where it talks about native american would kill animal for food and offer thanks for them to help them survive. This is very true, many people was made to believe that as long as they buy it(as in purchase it with money), there is no problem, we don't have to consider the merits of those who had sacrifice in order for us to live on. In actual fact, you will repay it later, there is no right or wrong, just a natural consequences law.

There is one thing that vegetarian shouldn't do. -> Don't force people to be vegetarian.

I do have a confession to make. After 3 years of being vegetarian, I felt that it is possible that my body has mutated, changed. I guess that is why despite lacking nutrient, vegetarian would still survive.

The thing which confused me is that why there is vege-fish, vege-meat and vege-etc which make a like or taste like the real poultry? but all this is make from flour then why not vegetarian just buy a pack of flour at home make himself/herself a vege-whatever... for what i know from a monk is poultry consumer doesn't means that you are not sincere to god or then means of vegetarian is to prevent killing of life poultry but no matter how we no need to feel guilty cause if you are a buddishm you should understand that being animal in this life is their karma or deed for what they had done in the past life. If we are not means to kill it (like going to a restaurant request the chief to cook a fish which is life then only you consider killing). so there is no guilty to be a poultry-consumer and i dont care wheather you are vegetarian or not but just dont persue me to be vegetarian,.......haha.that's all

that's why... i said vegetarian shouldn't ask someone a non-vegetarian to become a vegetarian.

the vege-fish are meant for non-vegan to eat.

sincerity is another issue, i never mentioned about sincerity to god here... You can be married but yet you are not sincere to your spouse.

Meat eater are prone to food poisoning because meat is easily decomposed. Special care must be put towards ensuring meat hygiene.It is better to cook yourself.

Pls don't be vegetarian because your spouse is vegetarian. Otherwise you would grow to hate he or she.
