That's funny, S.

  My teacher who has millions

 

My teacher who has millions of followers around the globe said that Buddha in a life

previous to his life as Siddhartha Gautama, came across a starving tiger and her 2

starving cubs, and lay down by her, sacrificing his life.

 

However, in his life as the Buddha, he taught the monks that they could eat meat if

it was put into their begging bowls.  Some scriptures say he died of pigfound flesh or truffles (food poisoning). Others say he died of pig flesh which was in his bowl.

 

You don't of course have to accept any of this as true. I believe it is.

And yet, as Saint Luke (whose credibility I accept as absolute) tells us, in the last chapter of his Gospel, that on the evening of Pascha, after the resurrection, Jesus appeared to the disciples and asked for something to eat.  They gave Him a piece of fish and a honeycomb.  


Enjoy effulgent days, and exquisite nights,

unto the exultations of Heaven.

  When Constantine, an animal

 

When Constantine, an animal eater, became emperor, he convened the Council of Nicea in 325 AD. Many vegetarian passages were removed from the Bible at that time,

and Jesus emerged in the new texts as very different from the vegetarian Essene he was.  The Gospel of Mary and the Gospel of Thomas are 2 gospels which reflect Jesus' nonviolent diet.
