      Rationale for Becoming Vegetarian: http://www.viva.org.uk/goingveggie/index.html
      Rationale for Becoming Vegan:       http://www.viva.org.uk/goingvegan/index.html

       

      Hello


       

      Those who are already on a vegan diet or for those who are keen to go on a Vegan diet is great....but this is to help and encourage those who are not yet on a vegan diet to first pledge Lifelong vegetarian and then gradually go into a vegan diet  ....

       

      After some discussion, the Rinpoche is very compassionate and said that Eggs are still permitted at this point in time......

      but if possible,  One may try to gradually avoid whenever one can within one's best capacity. It will also be good if one can try one's best to be mindful of cakes/sweets/health supplements that may have gelatine and eggs in them.....

      Milk , butter and cheese are still permitted....... it would be helpful for one to read the labels....cos' some cheese are made with the stomach lining of baby calves....... therefore, one can buy cheese that has the vegetarian label on it...

       

      This Project is to encourage part time vegetarians or fulltime vegetarians to take an official Pledge to become Lifelong Vegetarians....

       

      This means :-

       

      From the day one takes this Vow/Pledge, One has to stop eating any kind of food/soup/drinks cooked or mixed with meat/seafood.....

       

      with metta & sila
