What The Buddhist People Eat

As a result, Buddhist do not kill animals, and not many eat meat or fish because this is considered to be bad. Buddhism and Jainism are the main religions and there is a relationship with vegetarian belief in Buddhism.

What The Buddhist Wear

Buddhist also wear mala, a bracelet that has 108 beads. The 108 beads on the mala repersents the 108 human passions that they assured when telling the beads. They also have 3 extra beads on the mala to repersent the completion of a cycle. The 3 extra bead also symbolize the Three Jewels of Buddhism: the buddha, the dharma and the sangha. The hidden string that passed through all the beads symbolized the penetrating power of the Buddhas. A mala is usally worn as bracelets but preist generally wear them as long necklaces.
