Imagine my surprise when my generally carnivorous friend Martin forwarded me a link to this wonderful compilation of the Baha’i Writings on vegetarianism and the virtues thereof. I thought it so enlightening that I’d share it with all of you. Thanks Martin. You know we can always use more apologetics for this beautiful and simple way of life.
For those of you who don’t know: although Baha’is are not prescribed any particular diet to follow, the Writings of the Baha’i Faith praise vegetarianism as a natural diet that’s better adapted to the human body than meat-eating. Not too sure about that? Read up on it.
P.S. (10 PM): …and here are a few other veggie links for your perusal: veg.ca, run by the Toronto Vegetarian Association; the UK’s Vegetarian Society; VegWeb, a site with recipes; The Green Door, Ottawa’s original vegetarian restaurant; Le Commensal, a Montreal-based vegetarian restaurant chain that also sells its own line of veggie products; La Manne, a vegetarian grocery store/restaurant in my old digs, Victoriaville.
