Dear Rinpoche, I feel the exact same way about animals as you. My two cats are like my children and make the wish everyday that all sentient beings without exception have the same unconditional love and care as they do. I have also been vegetarian for 16 years now and I will never go back to eating meat. Over the years, I've also managed to convince many others, using gentle persuation or leading by example, to either reduce their consumption of meat, to buy organically grown animals or just to go veg full stop. I know many Vajrayana practitioners who still gorge on meat, saying that everything is empty anyway. I don't wish to criticise them, but Padmasambhava himself said this: "Although my view is higher than the sky, my respect for the cause and effect of actions is as fine as grains of flour." I think this is an important point which should not be forgotten with all practitioners. The great Mahasiddhas Patrul Rinpoche as well as Shabkar also extolled the virtues of vegetarianism as Buddhist practitioners. Rinpoche, please continue your most excellent Bodhisattva work towards helping sentient beings. With love and care, Monique
