A local governor asked venerable Ma-tsu, Ch'an master of T'ang dinasty time: "Master, should I eat meat and drink wine?"
Master answered rather straightforwardly: "To eat and drink is your natural right, to abstain from meat and wine is your chance for greater blessedness".
I doubt a Zen master of such posture would be so plain.
My answer, accross the centuries, is:
To eat meat and drink wine, or not to eat mean and drink wine, both is your natural right.
A need for an answer is your natural slavery.
