  • Sarnaduti Brahma Hare Krishna! This is a response to KP P’s post below at http://krishnaconnect.com/posts/12232/kp-p - it seems I cannot comment on that post directly: Ayurveda is a branch of the Vedas that deals with various methods to increase the duration of life, just like other branches of the Vedas, which deal with different subject matters, e.g. military science, etc. Hence, it is true that it does not deal with spiritual or transcendental matters directly, as it concerns mostly with increasing your bodily duration of life (ayuh). Veda is the sum total of all knowledge, and it contains different department of knowledge to gradually elevate different kinds of men to the spiritual position. Hence, the Vedas also have recommendations for meat-eaters to be gradually elevated to the transcendental, spiritual position. In light of this, it is better to post verses from Srimad Bhagavad-Gita or Bhagavata Purana, which are the cream of all knowledge, as they spoken directly by (or speaks about) the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Krishna, who is full of all knowledge,andwhich are translated by a pure devotee of Krishna like Srila Prabhupada, than to post an article like this, written by less knowledgeable people, which do not provide the true picture of the importance or purpose of the Vedas. The best way to serve parents or others in need in society is to become a devotee of Krishna, and provide the knowledge of Krishna consciousness to everyone, which is the real need of others in society. There was no meat-eating before Kali Yuga, whether in India or anywhere else in the world. These principles of meat-eating, illicit sex, gambling and intoxication were introduced in the human society at large only after Kali Yuga. As mentioned before, however, there is mention of non-vegetarian diet in the Vedas, under some restrictions, for men in the lowest mode of material nature: that is ignorance (tamas), in order to gradually elevate them to the transcendental position. Of course, later on, people were misusing the sacrifices of the Vedas as an excuse to eat animals wantonly. Then, Lord Buddha appeared and instructed people to stop eating animals and reject the Vedas, knowing well that they were misusing the verses. In order to do spiritual practices, one does not have to be physically strong, as wrongly mentioned by Swami Vivekananda. Physical strength, or playing sports, has nothing to do with spiritual practices. Spiritual practices depend upon spiritual strength, not physical strength. Spiritual strength is provided by Lord Balarama. Hence, football cannot make us closer to God than Bhagavad Gita, and it is indeed a wrong and very misleading suggestion by Swami Vivekananda. It is true that when vegetables and plants are plucked from the farms and gardens, they also feel pain. However, Lord Krishna instructs that if we offer them with love and devotion to him, He will accept it and we will be freed from all sinful reactions by accepting the remnants, or Prasada. Hence, it is useless to be a vegetarian. One has to accept only Krishna Prasadam. Otherwise, even vegetarian food we lead to sinful reactions, and will not lead us to ultimate liberation from the material existence. Haribol!
