The Great Compassion: Buddhism and Animal Rights By Norm Phelps

Buddhism ought to be an animal rights religion par excellence. It has long held that all life forms are sacred and considers kindness and compassion the highest virtues. Moreover, Buddhism explicitly includes animals in its moral universe.

Great book & ideology of kindness / compassion / opposition of all kinds of animal exploitation. I got a information that in Tibetain temples at Dharemshala in Himachal Predesh animal sacrifices but when I visited these temples then I never found the stain of animal sacrifice over there, may be these Buddhist people eat meat -zero degree area's where they can not get grains easily but YAK is a vehicle & food as well.
