I am a vegetarian. I turned exactly a year ago. Many people ask me "why?" and I rarely answer them. What would you say? Is it a part of zen not to want to eat meat? I doubt that. I feel both physically and morally better being a vegetarian, it seems "the right thing to do". And zen is just doing the right thing... right? :)
I don't think so.Zen has a lot with vegetarian.I think you have been heard of that old Zen Masters who sit for years without eating anything. Besides how can it not have rights since its a part of Buddhism. there is right in Zen..
