Vinay: Pranam Maharaj, I have a small question. I want to start a restaurant which involves meat in it. Is it ok to do such type of business? I am a pure vegetarian. please guide me. Many Many Thanks.
Swami Ram Swarup: My heartiest blessings to you, my son.
Business of non-vegetarian and intake of non-vegetarian is not possible unless it involves violence. One more thing, for which I and even God is happy that you do not take non-vegetarian but business of non-vegetarian involves violence, effect of which will be faced by you.
So, now it is upto you to take decision in the matter.
Again, my blessings to you.
Jay: Guruji, I want to apply holyash(vibhuthi/bhasmi) on my body at 5 places daily (head,arms,chest&navel). What is the procedure and what mantras are to be used for doing this? Kindly enlighten.
Swami Ram Swarup: According to Vedas, there is no such provision that a devotee should apply holy ash on body parts. God only tells to follow Vedas’ teachings and get progress both in worldly matters (pious) and spiritualism.
So, according to Vedas, we must worship God daily by doing agnihotra, name jaap of God and practice of Ashtang Yog for which you should learn the same from an experienced, learned person.
