Dalai Lama enjoys veal

http://www.jsonline.com/story/index.aspx?id=605615

It is sad to read this. The Dalai Lama preaches compassion, and not harming others. He supposedly became vegetarian (again) last year. He is an astounding role model, yet how can he preach harmlessness when eating the flesh of a baby animal who has never even known his own mother...or consuming the flesh of a farmed pheasant? 

The Tibetan people are oppressed. The majority of animals humane consume are oppressed. To consume the flesh of the suffering, while his own people suffer is not comprehensible to me.

I know he is human. I know he has a bounty of compassion for others. I also know he is educated, that he knows of the suffering nonhumans endure at the hands of humans. What a tragedy.

If, like me, any of you wish to express your opinion, feel free to e-mail the Dalai Lama's office info@dalailama.com   or ohhdl@dalailama.com   

It's hard to find wisdom in a holy man who does not practice his own teachings. But I know it's there. I'm just bummed. :(
