The Five Scientifc Reasons behind Vegetarianism

The key to good health & happiness is Vegetarianism. The Vedic perspective, which is multidimensional, includes the medical, ecological & spiritual viewpoints. These are the major reasons

I) The Ethical Law of Reason

Love in Action is Non-violence & because of this noble passion, ethically one desists from killing animals. Inflciting pain is Sin.

II) The Consequences of the Law of Karma

The Law of Cause & Effect, of Action & Reaction & the Grand Law of Causation is known as the Law of Karma.

Divine Merit & Sin have been defined in transcendental literature thus.

Helping others is divine merit.
Inflicting pain is sin.

All actions have reactions, physical & karmic.By involving in inflicting pain to others ( animals included ), one must in the future, experience an equal measure of the suffering caused.

III) Medical Reason

Fruits and vegetables are alkaline by nature and by consuming them we keep our 80-20 percent ratio of alkalinity & acidity.

Vegetarian diet is easier to digest, imposes fewer toxins on the body & provides a wide range of nutrients. Vegetarians are less susceptible to major diseases ( because they are more alkaline than acidic ) and thus live
longer. They have smaller medical bills, fewer physical complaints & less frequent visits to the doctor. Their immune system is stronger, bodies purer & skin more glamorous because of natural foods.

IV) The Spiritual Reason

While the Occidental perspective is to consume food which will bring out aggression & dynamism, the Oriental perspective is to consume food which will bring out the latent divinity in man.

Food is the source of the body"s chemistry & the subtle essence of food becomes the mind. What we ingest, affects our Consciousness, emotions and experiential patterns. One should abstain from meat, fish & eggs if one wants to live in higher states of Consciousness. By ingesting the grosser characteristics of animal foods, one introduces in to the mind lust, greed, anger, jealousy, anxiety, suspicion, fear etc all of which are locked into the flesh of the butchered animals. For these reasons, vegetarians live in higher consciousness & non-vegetarians abide in lower states of Consciousness.

As our Mother Earth is suffering, we have to understand that Meat is the cause of the escalating loss of species, destruction of ancient rain foreststo create pasture lands for livestock, loss of topsoils and the consequent increase of water impurities and air pollution. Hence by renouncing meat, we save our Planet Earth.

Here we give below foods for the tripod of Body, Mind & Self

Food for Self

Ghee ( Indian Clarified Butter ) & Water energized with Mantra

Food For for Mind

Fruits ( sweet ), Green Vegetables, Coconut, Yogurt, Sugar, Walnuts. Rice ( basmati)

Food For Body

Fruits ( citric ), Vegetables which grow under the earth, Milk, Proteins, Wheat, Corn, Barley etc.
Lentils & Spices

Foods to be generally avoided

Eggs ( Can cause ulcers, Heart & kidney problems )
Coffee ( Can cause BP, Arthritis, Nervousness )
Red Meat ( Can cause Cholesterol related diseases )
Old Chocolate ( Can cause Leukemia )
Pound Cakes ( Stagnation of digestive system)
Refrigerated Food.

May I finish my article with a quotation from the Philosopher-King Parikshith " The animal killer cannot relish the message of Absolute Truth "!
