Tibetans pledged to shun non-vegetarian food

Tibetans here today pledged to shun non-vegetarian food for a year in a bid to enhance their "collective merit" and dedicating it for the long life of their spiritual leader the Dalai Lama.

A notice has been pasted to this effect at Tibetans Staff Mess declaring that it would refrain from engaging in the business of buying and selling of non-vegetarian supplies for one year from April 11, 2007 to February 2, 2008.
When asked about turning vegetarian, head of the Staff Mess Machen Gendun said, "this is indeed a noble initiative to enhance the collective merit and dedicating it to the longevity of the Dalai Lama".
