Dear Brothers and Sisters of the Sikh Faith,
Please stop fighting over whether one should eat meat or not. Our Gurus never ate meat and they have never encouraged anyone to eat meat either.
There are numerous references against eating meat in the Holly Granth Sahib.
Eat what you wish but I say this from my own experience that if you are a soul progressing towards enlightenment or have the desire to do so, then abstain from eating meat because it becomes a hurdle in the the path spirituality and one shall pay dearly for these acts.
Jo karan ge so Bharen ge (I am doing it)
Ranjit Singh ji,
Firstly HOW DARE YOU ACCUSE ME OF MANMAT!!One will have to draw a conclusion from your argument (Manmat) that either you are not sikh or if you were one by association then you do not yet understand the message of our beloved Gurus'.
The only person judging them is you by saying they ate a specific diet. I can provide historical sources that confirm that some Guru's were vegetarian and some were not, but I will not.If the decendants of Sodhi's and Bedi clans are non-vegeterians how does that reflect on our Guru's way of live and teachings. Do doubt our Guru's? Are you in a position to judge them?
I can demonstrate clearly how incorrect Devinder "Singh"'s work is just from the first few lines of it.I am attaching the hard work of one "Davinder Singh" who has toiled to compile the following excerpts from Our Gurus under the title "Diet and Spirituality. I now seek his permission to put this article on the board " for all those non-believers" (Wise guys) :
.................if you are a soul progressing towards enlightenment or have the desire to do so, then abstain from eating meat because it becomes a hurdle in the path spirituality .........................
Material contamination of our mind begins with bad habits such as taste for intoxicants, craving for foods not conducive to spiritual progress (dead animals, egg, fish, etc.), illicit sex, gambling, stealing, and so on. In fact bad habits such as illicit sex, gambling, and stealing are all linked to consumption of intoxicants and undesirable foods. As the saying goes: "We are what we eat"!
Hence, what we eat and drink has tremendous effect on an ordinary person's mind and body. For example, consumption of food such as meat (dead animals) and intoxicants are generally very pleasing to an out-going mind indulged in material life. Conversely, such a diet has certainly no appeal to a sincere spiritual aspirant. Thus, diet is a function of an individual's choice based upon his goal in his life, that is, does one want to become God conscious and go back to his Source, or, does he want to live merely a nonsensical life? God has given us the free will to choose between these two. By the way, there is no mid-way!
You are some piece of work :rofl!!:Ranjit Singh ji,
Your outburst shows the spiritual state of your your mind. It is a scientifically proven fact that "You are what you eat". You can twist the Gurus word to justify your actions/views.
I need no advice from people like you.I still stand by the following:
My spiritual journey is complete with the blessings of my GURU'S. I have nothing to gain from this argument of words.
As Bhagat Kabir ji said " Gyani ke hum Guru hain, Moorakh ke hum Daas".
However, I will offer you one piece of advice. Write on your practical experiences and not on hearsay or what someone else says. Seek the blessings of our beloved Gurus for the vision and guidance.
why is it that meat eaters are always so defensive of vegetarians and call them brahmins! we are trying to help u meat eaters from the goodness of our heart, what are u doijg for us? trying to corrupt our spirituaity and chances of merging with Waheguru? we're doing seva, we have nothing to lose, u have everything to lose, if u turn out to be wrong, this will hang over ur head for many more lifetimes. if we are wrong, it wont make a difference! lol, i really hope all u who argue against this know what ur doing because ur potentially false words may effect MANY people and their chances of salvation.......Propagandist nonsense.
Why are vegetarians so obsessed with what meat eaters eat?
Why don't they just mind their own business instead of bashing meat eaters all the time?
I could post here promoting the benefits of eating meat here too........how would you like that?
Infact I will!!
