I have read that the original Buddha did not teach one had to be a vegetarian. I also read in a beginners guide to Buddhism that one should not eat meat that was killed just for them. I would like to hear peoples thoughts on this. I know one of the principles is to not kill, but I'm not sure I can give up meat 100%. I do not eat seafood because of the over fishing and damage to the oceans.
