We have no obligation to a cruel repast

Loon 4 Confronted with the problems that characterize our herding culture, we are perhaps like the metaphorical man wounded by an arrow that the Buddha discussed with his students.

He said that the man would be foolish if he tried to discover who shot the arrow, why he shot it, where he was when he shot it, and so forth, before having the arrow removed and the wound treated, lest he bleed to death attempting to get his questions answered.

We, likewise, can all remove the arrow and treat the wound of eating animal foods right now. We don’t need to know the whole history.

We can easily see it is cruel and that it is unnecessary; whatever people have done in the past, we are not obligated to imitate them if it is based on delusion.

May all beings be free and at peace,  Will
