Spiritual Reasons to Be Veg: Vegetarian Diet Not A Matter of "Culture" But Karma and Cholesterol



 
Vegetarian Diet Not A Matter of "Culture" But Karma and Cholesterol
 
Vegetarianism in the East:
 
"I must point out that animal food, even if a single particle is eaten, is detrimental to spiritual progress. What of eating, those who help in killing are also guilty." (Sawan Singh)
 
"Regarding laxity in the prescribed diet, I wish to say to all aspirants on the Path that it is necessary so long as one is in the physical body, vegetarianism should be strictly adhered to. Any relaxation in the matter of diet would not only be a definite hindrance in meditation but would unnecessarily contract karmic reaction. The real Goal is to use every means possible to rise into full God-consciousness." (Kirpal Singh, Spiritual Elixir)
 
"It must be borne in mind that restriction to pure vegetarian diet is of utmost necessity. Any transgression in this respect is liable to affect your spiritual progress adversely. The prohibited food flares up carnal desires other than contracting karmic debt. Both are highly detrimental and should be avoided scrupulously. I hope you are abiding by all of the rules and that you take my advice in proper perspective in the larger interests of your spiritual progress." (Kirpal Singh, Spiritual Elixir)
 
"…I would like to remind you that the eating of liver and fish will definitely stand in the way of your spiritual progress without in any way helping you in your illness or in any way extending your lifespan. 'Thy days are numbered,' is a well known aphorism. So why unnecessarily create karmic debts which you may easily avoid? You had better avoid these." (Kirpal Singh, Spiritual Elixir)
 
"The members of my family were meat eaters. As a child, I did not partake of it. My father said, 'Pal, (this was my nickname), why don't you take meat? It will do you good.' I replied, 'Will you have me make a graveyard out of my body?'" (Kirpal Singh)
 
Vegetarianism in the West:
 
"Now beware in yourselves that your hearts do not become heavy with the eating of flesh and with the intoxication of wine and with the anxiety of the world, and that day come up upon you suddenly; for as a snare it will come upon all them that dwell upon the surface of the Earth." (Jesus, Luke 21:34, Syriac Aramaic New Testament)
 
"Our Earth has abundance of such pure and harmless foods and there is no need for us to partake of meals for which blood has to be shed and innocent life sacrificed." (Pythagoras, considered to be a Master of Inner Light and Sound)
 
"For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love." (Pythagoras)
 
"Denial is not just a river in Egypt." (Mark Twain) The uninformed Sunday school notion that vegetarianism is "cultural" and confined mostly to India is the inaccurate assumption of a few. See, Vegetarianism @ Wikipedia About the Worldwide Vegetarian Movement as of 2014: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vegetarianism

Definitely, the intake of any particle of animal flesh prohibits progress in meditation for spiritual experiences with light & sound...

that wa a clip taken from the end of the documentary.  if you click on her website you can view the beginning 0 minutes which is filled with amazing things.  birds even come to her and land on her shoulder and atop the crown of her head when she is seated in Nature!

There is back story, as well, + more telepathic proofs and insights into the beautiful inner working of all beings.

Dear Yvette, thank you for your reply, I have been to her site, saw the panther and elephant videos, and the full documentary... What do you mean by "There is a back story" ? Cheers, " I see you " (quote from the Avatar Movie). She does workshop in Findhorn Scotland and all over the world. For it is quite related to Buddhism meditation, listening to one's body and feelings, accepting what is, clearing wanting & fears, having good intentions, being in peace and experimenting, sharing positive vibrations. Thank yo again for showing it is happening,the world is made of what we all do ;-)
