Rishi: Swamiji charan sparash, mera question hai ki agar non vegetarian food allowed nai hai to bhagwaan ne inssan ko non veg digest karne ki takat kyun di.. agar insaan non veg kahye to use turant bimar ho jana chaiye ager non veg insaan ke liye nai hhai hai to..magar aisa nai hai.. kitne log non veg kha rae hain aur shayad vedic yug se kha rae honge..aur ye shayad insaan ke pichle karmo ki wajah se ho sakta hai ki wo pichle janam main loin aadi rahe hon isliye non veg kahte hain.. pl batayen..OM..
Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you. Bhagwan ne insaan ko yeh non-vegetarian digest karne kee takat nahin dee hai. Isliye non-vegetarian khane se kafi bimariyan paida hotee hain, yeh aaj kee science bhi kehtee hai. Doosra, vedon mein violence nahin karne kee agya hai aur non-vegetarian bina violence ke nahin liya ja sakta, jo ki paap hai.
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 are different from that of 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 eaters 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 habits will differ. The cub taking vegetarian food will not 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 inflicts violence on 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.
Vedas strictly prohibit non-vegetarian diet and all kinds of addiction. God is the purest and is away from all kinds of result of any karmas to be faced. So the aspirant is also to become the purest to realize God. God’s stage is natural and eternal whereas aspirants have to achieve the same by doing worship etc. As regards, worship the same must be eternal according to the eternal philosophy of four Vedas which emanates direct from God. So the worship must not be self made. In this connection I usually quote a chowpayee from Ramayana:- “SHRUTI SAMMAT HARI BHAKTI PATH SANJUT BIRATI BIBEK. TEHIN NA CHALHIN NAR MOH BAS, KALPANHIN PANTH ANEK.” Meaning— Tulsi states that there is an eternal worship based on Vedas, which gives us ascetism and factual knowledge. But the people are not following the path of Vedas due to attachment (attachment with materialistic/articles, pomp and show and family etc.) And the people make their own new several paths of worship. I would advice you to read my book Vedic Satsang Sangrah Pt. I & II and Bhagwad Geeta-a secret of Vedas. Thereafter you may send your doubts and even you may come here for further guidance, if possible. Books can be sent on demand and on receipt of your postal address. The books will clear your all doubts.
Non—vegetarian slow poison hai, isliye isko khane se immediately death nahin ho saktee.
Pichhle janam mein yadi koi lion raha ho, to weh is janam mein lion jaisee awaz nahin nikalta. Kyunki is janam mein Ishwar nein jeevatma ko uske pichhle achchhey karmon ke adhar par manushya ka shareer diya hai aur yeh manushya ka shareer usey pehlee baar nahin mila hai usey pehle kai baar mil chukka hai isliye jeevatma manushya ka shareer dharann kar adhiktar manushya ke shareer waala karya hee kartee hai.
