Date: June 23rd – 27th 2006

Forum member:

I am a vegetarian considering going vegan.

I’d like to learn more about the Tibetan medical views of veganism. Is it generally considered a healthy choice in Tibetan medicine? Is it generally advised against? I understand that i would probably have to be assessed by a Tibetan medical practitioner to see how it would work with my personal constitution but are their any general views held about it?

Any info would be great and much appreciated.

During the ensuing discussion, someone posts a link to advice on this issue from Lama Gangchen.

Lama Gangchen is one of the strongest supporters for the Dolgyal practice.

although he is not connected to New Kadampa Tradition, we do not encourage any associations with him under the advice of the Private Office of His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
