An authoritative review of world religions shows that Hinduism's support of vegetarianism is qualified, Buddhist traditions are evenly split, Jainism requires vegetarianism, and Sikhism rejects it. Judaism, Christianity, and Islam don't insist on it, but a vegetarian undertone pervade them all. While many teachings do address diet's very real spiritual effects, a close look reveals pros and cons to both vegetarian and meat diets. This book helps readers to decide what is right for themselves.
