Meat eating in the Sutta Pitaka

Postby person » Fri Jun 28, 2013 5:11 pm

Forgive me if this has already been discussed here, but I'm wondering if there is a complete list of references to the eating of meat in the Sutta Pitaka. Has such a list been compiled, or, if not, would it be possible to compile such a list and would anyone here be able to do so?

As a matter of fact, I have done that research and compiled a list of what the Buddha ate since I was very curious too.

It turns out most meals were vegetarian and some vegan, but there is at least one instance of meat being ate.

OK, thanks, but I am actually looking for a list of any reference to meat eating at all, i.e. where the eating of meat is discussed or mentioned in any way,
not just incidents where the Buddha ate meat.

You can read some meaty bits in the Vinaya, though this is outside the Sutta Pitaka.

Ten types of unallowable meat, etc.

OK, here's a more specific question:
Are there any suttas where the Buddha or a bhikkhu says anything about lay people eating meat?
