Veg Inspiration, Thursday. Shojin.

In the Japanese language there is a beautiful word, “shojin,” roughly
translated into English as “abstention from animals foods and products
for religious or spiritual reasons.” The existence of this word reveals
the culture’s recognition that abstaining from the use of animal
products is a valid dimension of religious practice and of spiritual
aspiration.
