Food

Postby Cittasanto » Sun Jan 18, 2009 9:42 am

not sure if this is the best place to put it but it is referencing the suttas although feel free to move to a better place admin!

What food is actually mentioned in the suttas and Vinaya?
by food I mean for consumption not as in the bag of pulses and rice in the Satipatthana!
“Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.
(The mendicants asked) What are the two [types of persons]?
(The Lord Buddha responded) The malicious, or the inwardly angry, and the one with (blind) faith or the one who holds things incorrectly.
Mendicants, these two [types of persons] defame the Tathāgata.”

By food in the Suttas, do you mean which foods are acceptable or which foods the Buddha ate? If it is the latter, I have had a strong interest in that subject and have compiled some references to the exact foods the Buddha ate. They are compiled here:

There are a few more that I need to add, but are similar to what is shown there already.

In the case of the Vinaya you'll get a good idea from Ven. Thanissaro's exposition of the Food Chapter in his Buddhist Monastic Code.

Best wishes,

Hi Dhammanando
Thanks not read his monastic code but have saved the Vinaya in one of my files!
I will have to sort through my files and put things in a better order?
