Packing and transport more unwholesome than the food?

Postby Hanzze » Tue Feb 01, 2011 11:19 am

Dear friends,

what do you think, does our packing material, storage of food, preparation and availability has more unwholesome effects that the food itself?
The circle of wast and transport and all its effect on our self is maybe much more important to over think as to quarrel between, meet, vegetarian and vegan. Lets view a little on the shadow of our food, which might be much bigger as we think.
Just that! *smile*

Greetings Hanzze,

What you mean by "unwholesome"?

In English Buddhist circles this word is often taken as a translation for the Pali terms akusala.

I'm assuming that's not what you mean, however...

Metta,

Hello Hanzze, all,

One of the things which horrify me when I go to India, is the piles of plastic packing alongside roadways in urban and rural areas. Sometimes long mounds a metre high running the length of the roads. There are very few garbage pick-up services anywhere except certain areas in huge cities. thousands of the iconic Indian cows which live on the streets of towns and cities, and who have for centuries traditionally eaten the food waste placed on the streets, are now dying a horrific death each year due to the greed of the Western and Indian manufacturers and wholesalers who know the extent of the problem, but continue to use polythene wrapping and packing.

Plastic Bags are Choking the Life out of India

No more plastic bags, please!

Many communities are declaring themselves Polythene Free Zones:

Yes cooran,

that is the only way, and Buddhism provides all this, but how to encourage Buddhists especially Monks?
Just that! *smile*

Can someone explain to me what is going on here??
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- Sutta Nipata 3.725
