For most Christians of the Roman Catholic or Orthodox tradition, Lent is a period of repentance and spiritual renewal.
Most may adopt a meatless diet during this period. Why meatless or vegetarian?
This is because traditionally meat eating is associated with feasting and the rich. Therefore, a meatless diet is a sign of moderation and as an act of solidarity with the poor, sick, and the oppressed.
The Buddhist tradition also adopts a vegetarian diet not only out of compassion for animals but also a sign of simplicity.
All these practices are commendable and are done out of good intention.
Isn’t simple living and a meatless diet keys to a healthy lifestyle not only for the soul but for the mind and body?
This is also why I always had vegetarian meals in all my past retreats and the upcoming Herb Fest (August 5, 2017).
The chefs from Seeds Garden (http://seedsgarden.com.my), Melaka) will be creating a special meatless buffet for all participants in the herb fest.
