Buddhism and Animals

Sunday, 18th December 2016

This is the fourth month our centre has been inviting its members to give a talk on a subject of their choice. This month’s talk was done by Jiří on the topic of Buddhism and Animals. The presentation has provided the attendees with a great discussion topic and some food for thought. The main themes of the talk were the Buddhist view on animals and our relationship with them, consumption of meat, the food production before and now, environmental issues connected with today’s industrial farming, sustainability of current demand on food sources, psychology of tradition, social conditioning and much more. For anybody who would like to read Jiri’s research on this subject, you can download his essay here: Buddhism and Animals

Next month’s topic is going to be on ‘The Buddha Gardener’ presented by David Briggs on Saturday the 21st of January 2017 in our centre from 15pm to 17pm. Everybody is invited.

Below you can find Jiri’s recorded talk:
