Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki fateh.
I was just reading about Guru Nanank Ji's Life story and I came across this reference to the things that were at the janeau putting veremony....and the author mentioned that a LIVE GOAT was also there as well to be cooked for the people present.
Then I read Guru nanak Ji's Asa Di waar about this incident and I saw that this is indeed true. Guru Ji says so in the following slok in Asa Di Waar.... that the GOAT is killed and its meat is eaten..
SO what does this prove..regarding modern sikh 'theories" about vegetarianism...... I would like to hear other plausible explanations about this.
