Buddhism has long held the sacredness of all life forms, this book looks at the different types of Buddhism and the teachings that command respect for all life.
Buddhism explicitly includes animals in its moral universe. Consequently, we would expect Buddhism to oppose all forms of animal exploitation, and there is, in fact, wide agreement that most forms of animal exploitation are contrary to Buddhist teaching. However, many Buddhists still eat meat and here the author argues strongly against this practice and puts the case for vegetarianism.
