Is it not that they are making false allegations against the Bhagava? The exception presumes the rule. What I said refers exactly to this. There are five instances where a man, who slaughters a living being purposely for the Tathagata or his disciple, accumulates much demerit.
Fetch that living being! Jeevaka, does this bhikkhu think to trouble himself, another or both at that moment? With that thought developed limitlessly and grown great without anger. He partakes that morsel food, not enslaved, not swooned, and without a guilt, wisely reflecting the danger.
Retrieved from ” http: I witness it in the Blessed One. From today let the Blessed One remember me as a lay follower who has gone to him for shelter for as long suttta this life lasts. That householder serves the bhikkhu with the nourishing food with his own hands. Jivaka, those who speak thus, do not truthfully speak about what has been said or done by me, but misrepresent me with what is untrue and quite contrary to the actual facts…. I have heard it said that people slaughter living beings purposely for Samana Gotama and that Samana Gotama knowingly eats meat 2 of animals slaughtered intentionally for him and on account of him.
But the bhikkhu does not think thus: In various ways the Teaching is explained. Jiivaka the foster son of the prince approached the Blessed One, worshipped, sat on a side and said: Because the Buddha understood that not all landscape can support the growth of vegetables to support the population. We cannot claim autta by delegating our dirty work to someone else and hiding behind the mask of anonymity.
Jivaka sutta — 1. It is wonderful, Venerable Sir, it is marvellous. If that living thing is pulled along, tied, with pain at the throat, feeling displeased and unpleasant.
Majjhima Nikaya 55
What do you think, Jivaka? Anyone who slaughters a living being creates future disadvantage. Venerable sir, the Blessed One is my visible witness to that; for the Blessed One indeed also dwells in such infinite friendliness If what you said referred to that, then I agree with you. Meat that is impermissible: Moreover, Buddhism explicitly includes animals in its moral universe.
Do those who say, ‘People slaughter living beings purposely for Samana Gotama and Samana Gotama knowingly eats meat of animals slaughtered intentionally for him and on account of him’ say it in accordance with what the Bhagava says? They slaughter living beings for the recluse Gotama, the recluse Gotama deliberately eats meat prepared for him from animals killed for his sake Having taken his seat, he addressed the Bhagava thus: When the night is ended, in the morning he dresses, and taking his bowl and outer robe, goes to the house of that householder or householder’s son and sits down on a seat made ready.
Something covered was made manifest.
Are Buddhist vegetarian? What did BUDDHA say about eating meat.
That householder or his son serves him with the nourishing food with his own hands. The Tathagata has got rid jifaka sensual desire, hatred and bewilderment, has uprooted them, has rendered them like unto a cut off palm-tree stump, has made them incapable of further existence or of arising again. In this third instance he accumulates much demerit.
Please consider this Jivaka: Is what they jivakx in conformity with what the Bhagava has expounded? Wisely reflecting the danger. Then the house holder or the householder’s son serves him with excellent alms-food. Now I understand venerable sir. Verily, Venerable Sir, the Bhagava abides in goodwill.
As though an oil lamp was lighted, for those who have sight to see forms.
Jivaka Sutta This have I heard: But the bhikkhus does not think thus: Jeevaka, if anyone destroys the life of a living thing on account of the Thus Gone One or a disciple of the Thus Gone One, he accumulates much jivaks on these five instances. In the morning, after that night has passed, suta his robes and taking alms-bowl and the great robe, goes to the dwelling place of the householder or the householder’s son and takes the seat prepared for him.
This householder should offer me nourishing food in the future too. He eats that almsfood without being attached to jivvaka, without longing or urging for it, and utterly disgusted with it, he sees the danger in it and understands the escape from it…!!!
He does not think: If the bhikkhu desires he accepts the invitation. When that living being experiences pain and panic on being killed, this is the fourth instance in which he lays up much demerit.
