Are you talking about Jainism? Like the Indian religion? Cause I guess it would kind of go along with that, since they believed everything was, in a sense, alive, and thus treated everything with compassion. But if you are, Jainism goes a bit further than just diet


yeah, read about them...

"These principles are common to all, but differences occur in the religious obligations of the monastic orders (whose members are called yatis) and the laity (sravakas). The yatis must observe five great vows (panca-mahavrata): refusal to inflict injury (ahimsa), truthfulness (satya), refusal to steal (asteya), sexual restraint (brahmacarya), and refusal to accept unnecessary gifts (aparigraha). In keeping with the doctrine of nonviolence, they carry the Jainist reverence for animal life to its most extreme lengths; the yati of the Svetambara sect, for example, wears a cloth over his mouth to prevent insects from flying into it and carries a brush to sweep the place on which he is about to sit, to remove any living creature from danger. The observation of the nonviolent practices of the yatis was a major influence on the philosophy of the Indian nationalist leader Mohandas Gandhi. The secular sravaka, in addition to his observance of religious and moral duties, must engage in the adoration of the saints and of his more pious brethren, the yatis."

Most Jainists aren't that strict, and only go to those lengths if they going on a pilgrimage or become a monk, to my understanding. Just so long as the laymen kill nothing, they can eat it. Unfortunately, though, this does prevent Jains from using antibiotics, antibacterials and the like. One of my religion professors had a Jainist doctor who had to direct her to another doctor for her infection, since it's against her religion to even administer drugs to kill bacteria.

Oh, and monks have to actually sweep through the grass before they step on it to check for bugs they might accidentally step on, and must walk lightly and barefooted so as to not severely hurt the grass.

Well if that's what they believe in then I'll leave them be. It's not as if they're anything harmful.

Besides, they're actually helping the non-Janinist community by providing us with more meat and apples! XD
