GIVE UP MEAT

1.Eating meat to swell	
how can pity?
2.Protect hoarding as to
mercy abjure meat.
3.Heart of tasting meat
as armed unkind.
4.Mercy is unkilling, unkind
kills, flesh-eating unrighteous.
5.Life, non-eating flesh even
hell retains eater.
6.If unkill for flesh-eating
none sell it.
7.Avoid flesh-eating if realizing
sufferings of beings.
8.Pure from illusion evades
eating life-less flesh.
9.Avoiding mutton betters thousand 
ghee-burning sacrificial rituals.
10.All beings revere kind
non-eaters of meat.
