Vegetarism and religion

Some people are vegetarians because of their belief. Many religions enjoin man to live without killing.

The Old Testament instructs, "Thou shalt not kill." (Exodus 20:13) and in Genesis (1:29) God is proclaiming, "Behold, I have given you every herb-bearing tree, in which the fruit of the tree yielding seed, it unto you shall be for meat."

We find the same idea in East religions : Buddhism, Hinduism, Jainism... They preach against animal killing and promote life in harmony with nature. Vegetarianism is a fundamental step on the path to self-awareness.
