Please note that, idea presented in this book is not of Ven. Kiribathgoda Gnanananda Thero but of our Sasthrun Wahanse (Gautama Sambuddha). Ven Gnanananda Thero just communicates to us, what really Gautama Buddha has said re this, just refering to Uthum Buddha Deshana (from Sutra/Vinaya Pitaka).

Being a true buddhist, I'm a true vegetarian as well. Please read the book again carefully.
Don't forget that anyone can illicitly use our Sasthrun Wahanse's deshana from Thripitaka.

Machan the overall idea is that being a vegetarian is not something essential. I don't agree to that.
But being a true vegetarian is something very difficult to do and hence have a real value.
I'm a true vegetarian

Dear Friend, I did read the book carefully. Not only the book, I also read all Sutra/Vinaya sections in Sutta and Vinaya pitakas to which Ven.Gnanananda Thero has referred to. Further, I also have read many more Sutra Deshana of Gautama Buddha, directly from Sutta/Vinaya Pitaka. My Dhamma knowledge is independant. Ven.Gnananda Thero's book does not conflict with my understanding of Sri Saddharma and Gautama Buddha. Even before reading this book, I had same views on the subject. So dear friend, why don't you independantly study this. There's no point in arguing here. Isn't it?

Ok, thank you for your idea. I also own a set of books of the total Thripitakaya. But I'm still not finished reading it.

BUT as to my opinion, to be or not to be a vegetarian is not the core of Buddhism as well. It's all about the only practicable way to attain Nibbana... So, arguing on such a topic like this is not something useful.
