Cherishing Life護生放生

Cherishing Life, Liberating Life

佛教從有史以來,沒有發生過戰爭,因為佛教的戒律,第一條就是不殺生,不但不殺人,就是其他的動物也不殺,而且還要放生,保護一切動物的安全,所以沒有戰爭。 ──宣公上人


Every living being has the virtuous characteristics and wisdom of a Thus Come One.  It is only due to false thinking and attachments that they are unable to certify to their attainment.  --Shakyamuni Buddha upon accomplishing enlightenment beneath the Bodhi Tree.  --The Flower Adornment Sutra, Chapter 7: The Names of the Thus Come Ones with commentary by Venerable Master Hsuan Hua

世上刀兵大劫,皆由人心好殺所致。人人戒殺放生,則人人全其慈悲愛物之心,而刀兵劫運,亦自消滅於無形。 ──印光大師

>> Vegan Buddhist Nuns Have Same Bone Density as Meat EatersAustralian medical researchers found that although the 105 post-menopausal vegan (consuming no meat, no dairy, no eggs) Vietnamese Nuns in the study had 1/3 of the daily intake of calcium than the meat eaters, the vegan nuns' bone density was the same as the women who eat meat (animal protein) and diary.  The researchers note that fruits and vegetables are likely to have positive effects on bone health.
