buddhists and vegetarianism

Posted by Liz , Aug 30,2004,16:49 Post Reply   Forum

hello there.
i am new here and have been attempting buddhism for about two years now. I feel badly because I am having a hard time with meditation. also, I have many questions and sadly, there are no buddhist temples where I am from.
I hope that someone can help me here.

It was my understanding that buddhists should be vegetarians however I am not sure anymore. I wish I could get some answers.

Just one more little point. I do not consider myself following any particular buddhist school. At the time I am trying to just get a handle on the basic teachings. Which, let mw just say is quite a task in itself.

I hope someone here can help me.
