Kalachakra Tantra

IThe root tantra of Kalachakra says:

Wicked people, hard to train.
Kill harmless beasts
As sacrifice to gods and for their ancestors,
To gain protection, profit, and fulfil their aims.
To buy the meat, to wish to eat it, is indeed an evil act.

Shabkar says: This passage shows that if one wishes to eat meat and buys what one knows has come from animals that have been slaughtered for commercial purposes, one commits a negative action.
