For example, one of the rules still practiced by Buddhists is about respecting living things. It is forbidden to use food, clothing or goods if the consumption of any human or animal monk has been killed for its use. For example, the butcher kills an animal for people to eat. It is forbidden to consume because the animal has been killed for you. However, products and plants can be consumed without killing animals.

Spread of Buddhism in Asia Spread of Buddhism in Asia Buddhism has never developed a missionary movement in Buddhism, but its teachings have spread over the centuries: First to Southeast Asia, then to the rest of China and East Asia through Central Asia, and finally to other parts of Tibet and Central Asia. In these regions, there has often been an organic spread due to local interest in foreign traders' Buddhist beliefs. Sometimes the ruling class accepted Buddhism and offered the subjects the moral structure, but no one was forced to convert. Buddha's message was made public and accessible so that people could freely choose what was useful.

Summary Summary If Shakyamuni Buddha advised people not to blindly follow their teachings, to examine them carefully before accepting it, it would be quite the opposite of people to adopt Buddha's teachings by the force of zealous missionaries or edicts. Thus, for example, in the early seventeenth century AD, when Nieji Toyin attempted to bribe the Eastern Mongol nomads to accept Buddhism by offering live animals for every string they memorized, people complained to the highest authorities. This repressive teacher was finally punished and then exiled. Buddhism has spread to Asia in a variety of ways in a peaceful way and by adapting the message of love, compassion and wisdom to the needs and tendencies of different human communities.
