Day 38: Go ahead, eat meat!

July 14, 2013 0

Go ahead, eat meat!

Rinpoche told me, “Don’t worry, you don’t have to be ‪vegetarian‬. If you feel like eating meat, eat it if you want.” I was in shock because Rinpoche had never told anyone that before. Ever. For everyone else, Rinpoche encouraged them to be vegetarian. “Why is Rinpoche telling me this?”, I wondered. It was then I realised actually, I don’t need to eat meat (I just wanted to!). Since I didn’t need it, did I have to? It was 2009 when Rinpoche had that conversation with me in the back of his CRV, and it was then I quit meat for good. I did make one mean lasagne though (even if I didn’t know how to cut it properly)!
