Swami Ram Swarup: My blessings to you.
PLANTS HAVE SOUL
Plants have soul. You see, when a lion kills deer, buffalo, cow etc., in the jungle and eats it, God does not punish him because it is the nature of lion and other carnivorous animals to eat flesh.
Similarly God has allowed us to take vegetarian food, not the lion. So, we are not punished yet there is difference between flesh and vegetarian food. All vegetarian food should be taken when it is ripened. Secondly, you see, when the crops are ripened, only then are they cut and at that time soul has already left the crop before it is cut. That is why, it is told that vegetarian food should not be cut till it is ripened.
So we are allowed to take vegetarian food and not non-vegetarian food. Non-vegetarian is allowed by Almighty God to be consumed by carnivorous animals. I also paste my article in this connection:-
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.
In Rigveda mantra 10/27/6 God states that (Darsham) I see and know them (Annindran) who do not have faith in the [God] and are atheists and (Shritpaan) who devour the flesh of others.
(Eshu) upon them (Uu Nu) definitely and soon (Pavyaha Va Vrityuhu) befall My punishments.
Idea of the mantra is that The God is Omniscient i.e., He knows everyone. So, He knows thse persons as well, who consume non-vegetarian. The said act being against the Vedas becomes a sin and God sooner or later punishes such people.
Kitannunashak ke vishaye mein ved kehta hai ki jo kitannu athwa pashu-pakshi aadi fasal ko barbaad karein unhein maarna hinsa nahin hai. Isee prakar sarp, bichhu aur anya kitannu aadi yadi aapke ghar mein athwa rehne ke sthan mein aatey hain toh unhein bhi maar do, weh bhi hinsa nahin hai anyatha weh manushya jaati ko maar deingey.

SWAMIJI JAB KISI AAS PAAS KE PANDIT SE POOCHTEY HAI KI HAVAN KA KYA FAYDA TO VO YAHEE JAWAB DETE HAI KI JO AUSHADI VAGAIRAH DAALTEY HAI US DOOAIEN SE VATAVARAN SWACH HOTA HAI AUR KEETANU MAR JAATE HAI TO AGAR YAHEE HAVAN KA FAYDA HOTA HAI TO FIR MANTRA KYON AUR KYA NORMALLY LAKDI VAGAIRAH JALA KAR HAVAN SAMGREE SE BHEE YEHEE KAAM HO SAKTA HAI … CHARAN SPARSH YOUR SON DEEPAK
Swami Ram Swarup: Aapko apney vedon par vishwas hona chahiye aur isliye ved ko na jannae walon se prashan nahin karna chahiye kyunki weh toh ved ke khilaf hee jawab deingey. Doosra, kitabon mein bhi aur satsang mein bhi maine kai baar explain kiya hai ki Yajyen se bhautik aur adhyatmik dono laabh hain.
Basant: Namaste Swami ji. Satyarth prakash me likha hai ki jo uttam satvaguni hokar karm karte hain ve charon vedon ke gyata honge. aur jo mukt hote hain ve gunateet arthat sab gunon ke swabhav me na fanskar mahayogi hokar mukti ka sadhan karen. mujhe samajh nahi aa raha ki uttam satva gun aur Gunateet me main difference kya hai jab uttam satva guni vyakti charon vedon aur sab vidyaon ka gyata hai to use mukti kyon nahi milegi?
1. Kya Maharshi Manu raja hote hue bhi Gunateet the?
2. Gunateet vyakti ke swabhiman pe koi chot kare to kya vo swabhiman ko maintain karne ke liye Krodh aadi karega?
3. Vedon ka abhyas Satoguni hai to Gunateet kya hai?
Swami Ram Swarup: Namasteji. Han! Uttam satva gunn purush weh hotey hain jinka rajogunn aur tamogunn vedic sadhna ke dwara nasht ho gaya hai aur sattogunn shesh reh gaya hai. Satogunni purush adhyatmikwad mein interest leta hai. Aisey purush hee charon vedon ka adhyayan karke vidwan ban jaatey hain aur Grihasth ashram mein rehkar apne sabhi kartavya karma imaandaari se nibhatey hain. Yeh purush mukta nahin hotey arthat Moksha prapt kiye hue nahin hotey aur jo mukta purush hotey hain weh rajo-tamo aur satto gunn, in teenon gunnon ke prabhav se door hotey hain. Yeh Ishwar ka sakshaatkaar kiye hue hotey hain.
Isliye pratyek pranni ko mahayogi hokar mukti ka saadhan karna chahiye.
1.) Manusmriti padkar to aisa hee mehsoos hota hai ki Mahrishi Manu, raja hote hue bhi gunateet the.
2.) Gunateet purush ninda-stuti se parey hota hai.
3.) Gunateet ka matlab hai ki Rajogunn, Satogunn, Tamogunn, in teen gunnon se vedaadhyayan aur ashtang Yog kee sadhna dwara Samadhi prapt karke, alag ho jaana.
