Description

Drawing from a wealth of original religious documents and texts author Steven Rosen takes us on a fascinating journey back in time to explore the essential and often misunderstood roots of the world’s major religious traditions, to discover how vegetarianism was a cherished part of their philosophy and practice. He carefully examines and exposes many of the myths about Buddha, Mohammed and Jesus Christ which have long been used to justify meat-eating on religious grounds. Diet for Transcendence clearly shows that religious compassion was meant to be all-encompassing, directed toward animals as it is toward humans.

The ideas in this book did not originate with the author. Rather, they are the same truths stressed by spiritual teachers throughout history. Religion has always taught, in essence, that reverence for all life is a high spiritual ideal, and that universal brotherhood is the summit of genuine spirituality. This little volume should go a long way toward establishing these goals.

REVIEWS

Will help insure that the religious community is fully aroused from its dogmatic slumber, If animals could talk, they would thank Steven Rosen.
-Tom Regan, author, The Case for Animal Rights

Makes it clear that all religions teach compassion and that not eating meat is much more than just a healthy way to eat. It is the basis of a profound spiritual life.
-Hinduism today

Written from a vegetarian perspective, is a welcome effort, vegetarians will be further bolstered in their beliefs.
-Vegetarian times

Vegetarianism is a way of life that we should all move toward for economic survival, physical well-being and spiritual integrity, As a Catholic priest, I highly recommend this book.
-Father Thomas Berry, USA
