Embodiment of Wisdom | phyi mdo dgongs pa 'dus pa

One of the root tantras belonging to the Anuyoga cycle of the Nyingma school, The Embodiment of Wisdom, says:

Meat and blood are very negative foods and give off a strong smell. Spirits that feed on odours will come and steal away the vital energy and physical essences of those who consume meat, causing them to lose their healthy radiance…. If one craves the five great substances, such as meat and blood, looking on them as truly existent things, one will eventually become a spirit that lives upon the smell of blood.
