A River of Waste: The Hazardous Truth About Factory Farms

Postby m0rl0ck » Thu Nov 18, 2010 9:31 am

From the description at hulu.com: "A River of Waste: The Hazardous Truth About Factory Farms" exposes a huge health and environmental scandal in our modern industrial system of meat and poultry production.

If you are eating factory farm raised meat, you need to see this.

"Even if you've read the whole Canon and can remember lots of teachings; even if you can explain them in poignant ways, with lots of people to respect you; even if you build a lot of monastery buildings, or can explain inconstancy, stress, and not-self in the most detailed fashion ... The only thing that serves your own true purpose is release from suffering.

"And you'll be able to gain release from suffering only when you know the one mind."

Unfortunately, the clip can only be accessed in the US, apparently.
My recently moved Blog, containing some of my writings on the Buddha Dhamma, as well as a number of translations from classical Buddhist texts and modern authors, liturgy, etc.: Huifeng's Prajnacara Blog.

Yah sorry about that, i did look for a non US source but couldnt find one. If i run into one i will post it here. If you can get it thru a US proxy, its worth the effort if you are interested in the subject matter.

sorry if it is not the same movie...
Just that! *smile*
...We Buddhists must find the courage to leave our temples and enter the temples of human experience, temples that are filled with suffering. If we listen to Buddha, Christ, or Gandhi, we can do nothing else. The refugee camps, the prisons, the ghettos, and the battlefields will become our temples. We have so much work to do. ... Peace is Possible! Step by Step. - Samtach Preah Maha Ghosananda "Step by Step" http://www.ghosananda.org/bio_book.html

BUT! it is important to become a real Buddhist first. Like Punna did: Punna Sutta Nate sante baram sokham _()_

Great video, sheds yet even more light on the fiasco of the meat eating populace. Not only in production, not only in growing bigger-faster, but also in their shite.
