Check-Out The “ROLE ” Of Animals In Every Religion.

# Buddhist – Buddhism

Being a vegetarian makes it easier for us to increase our loving kindness and compassion.

You should know that these people who eat meat may gain some awareness and may seem to be in samadhi, but they are all great rakshasas. When their retribution ends, they are bound to sink into the bitter sea of birth and death. They are not disciples of the Buddha. Such people as these kill and eat one another in a never-ending cycle. How can such people transcend the Triple Realm? (from the Shurangama Sutra)

# Christian – Christianity

The fruit of the trees and the seeds and of the herbs alone do I partake, and these are changed by the spirit into my flesh and blood. Of these alone and their like shall ye eat who believe in me and are my disciples; for of these, in the spirit, come life and health and healing unto man (From The Gospel of the Holy Twelve, trans. by G.J. Ouseley)

Not by shedding innocent blood, but by living a righteous life shall ye find the peace of God. Blessed are they who keep this law; for God is manifested in all creatures. All creatures live in God, and God is hid in them. (From The Gospel of the Holy Twelve, trans. by G.J. Ouseley)

# Muslim – Islam

All creatures on earth are sentient beings. “There is not an animal on earth, nor a bird that flies on its wings – but they are communities like you. (The Quran, 6:38 )

# Hindu / HARE KRISHNA / Sikh / Jain

It is therefore the duty of all scripturally and morally conscientious Hindus to embrace a strictly vegetarian diet, avoiding all forms of meat, fish, and eggs.

Meat cannot be obtained without injury to animals, and the slaughter of animals obstructs the way to Heaven; let him therefore shun the use of meat. [The Laws of Manu V, 45 – 52 (Indian Sacred Book)]
