Anonymous: Pujya Guru ji maharaj pranaam and charan sparsh. I have few questions on yogis? Guru ji when a yogi appears in dream of a person does he knows, what makes him to appear in a dream of devotee. What does it indicate? I have experienced in dream twice during new year eve successively.
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you all, my daughter. I’ve been preaching that every good deed/blessings is given by Rishi or Yogi but the same is awarded by Almighty God through the Yogi. Mostly preach is delivered by a Yogi, duly inspired by God. In this connection, Samveda Mantra 2 “Devebhirmanushe janey” refers. So, the dream is also originated with the kind blessings of God. The darshan of Yogi even in a dream is always fruitful. My blessings to you, my daughter.

Swami Ram Swarup: Sorry, it is a lengthy task and requires long time to gather the information. I remain busy daily in routine spiritual tasks and it will not be possible for me to spend such a long time for the same.

Anil: Namaste Swamiji. I want to know that Why should us be vegetarian? I will be happy that If you give your answer with Medical as well as psychological answer. Please tell me which mantra of Ved says this thing.(Thank you)
Swami Ram Swarup: Namaste! In this connection, I paste my article, below. Please, study the article and yet you have any doubt then you can send your question again for clarification.


Vegetarians and non-vegetarians are two categories. Accordingly the construction of body i.e., teeth, small intestine and large intestine, and digestive system has been made by God.

Human beings come in vegetarian category. Our teeth and digestive system always differ from cat, dog, lion etc. Some animals like cow, buffalo, goat, elephant etc., also come in Vegetarian category. We take water by sipping but the animals who are non-vegetarian i.e., meat eater they do not sip but lick. Whatever we eat, that food develops our mind and body and creates natural behaviour. For example if we take a cub who is newly born and nurse him by giving milk and thereafter vegetarian food only and on the other hand to another cub we provide him
meat, then when they will be younger their habit will differ. The cub taking vegetarian food will be as violent as the cub who took meat.

Now medical science also says that the energy in vegetarian food is more than that in non-vegetarian food. Vegetarian food gives long and ill free life. Vegetarian elephant is stronger than non-vegetarian lion.

Nobody can take meat until one gives violence to animals or birds etc., which is a sin. Our stomach becomes a graveyard where we gather meat by eating. As regards life in vegetarians it does not harm to them while plucking from plants etc. because every vegetarian plant has short life and is meant to give food to the human life. But to us meat is not entitled. Science has recently told that non-vegetarians are more susceptible to cancer disease and teeth degeneration as compared to vegetarians.

Non-vegetarian food is prohibited as per Vedas, shastras, Upnishads and all the ancient holy books. In vegetarian food an ocean of calories and vitamins is available by the mercy of God. Please check from a dietician about the same. Because it is lengthy one and I cannot explain here. For example dal, is full of proteins, soybean has more protein than any non-vegetarian food, which has ability to inhibit cancer also where as non-vegetarian doesnot. Green vegetables like palak, methi, etc., are the richest source of iron and vitamin A. So is the case of milk, curd, rice, fruit, etc., -etc.
