Shabkar.org is a non-sectarian website dedicated to vegetarianism
as a way of life for Buddhists of all schools.
The site takes its name from Shabkar Tsodruk Rangdrol (1781-1851),
the great Tibetan yogi who espoused the ideals of vegetarianism accompanied by bodhicitta.
Buddhist Path is called the Middle Way. Avoiding extremes
is part of it.
By presenting an online collection of texts and other content
on Buddhism and vegetarianism Shabkar.Org aims to contribute
in a positive way to the view that keeping a vegetarian or
vegan diet is part of Buddhist teachings while keeping in
a vegetarian or vegan can be a gradual path.
