Vegetarianism in Religion

The Prohibition of Animal Flesh Eating

HINDUISM

“You must not use your God-given body for killing God’s creatures, whether they are human, animal or whatever.”
~ Yajur Veda
“By not killing any living being, one becomes fit for salvation.”
~ Manusmriti
“The purchaser of flesh performs himsa by his wealth; he who eats flesh does so by enjoying its taste; the killer does himsa by actually tying and killing the animal. Thus, there are three forms of killing. He who brings flesh or sends for it, he who cuts of the limbs of an animal, and he who purchases, sells, or cooks flesh and eats it – all of these are to be considered meat-eaters.”
Himsa means violence.
~ Mahabharata Anusasana Parva
“He who desires to attain Supreme Peace should ON NO ACCOUNT EAT THE FLESH OF ANY ANIMAL in the world.”
~ Mahabharata Anusasana Parva
“Flesh cannot be obtained without killing creatures, and Heaven cannot be attained if creatures are killed. Therefore, flesh should be discarded.”
~ Manusmriti
“He who gives counsel or order (to kill), he who cuts off any limb, he who actually puts an animal to death, the purchaser of flesh, and he who eats flesh, all of these are to be styled as killers.”
~ Manusmriti
“That creature, whose flesh I eat in this world would eat mine in the next world.”
~ Manusmriti
“Meat-eaters take repeated births in various wombs and are put every time to unnatural death through forcible suffocation. After every death they go to the Kumbhipaka Hell where they are baked (on fire).”
~ Mahabharata Anusasana Parva
“The sins generated by himsa curtail the life of the perpetrator of himsa. Therefore, those who are anxious for their welfare SHOULD ABSTAIN FROM MEAT-EATING.”
Himsa means violence.
~ Mahabharata Anusasana Parva
“Those who for their personal pleasure take the life of harmless creatures do not attain happiness in this life, or in the life hereafter. In view of the method through which flesh is acquired and considering the suffering to creatures in fastening with cord and killing them, MAN SHOULD GIVE UP MEAT-EATING OF ALL SORTS.”
~ Manusmriti
“Prajapati says that EATING MEAT OF ANY SORT IS A GREAT EVIL and abstinence from doing so is highly meritorious.”
~ Yamasmriti
“He who desires to augment his own flesh by eating the flesh of other creatures lives in misery in whatever species of beings he may take his birth.”
~ Mahabharata Anusasana Parva
“O Child, there is no doubt about this fact that flesh grows out of semen. (Therefore it is highly detestable.) FLESH-EATING IS THUS A GREAT EVIL, and abstinence from it is a virtue.”
~ Mahabharata Anusasana Parva
“He who abstains from flesh-eating and is kindly disposed towards all creatures becomes an object of shelter to them and gains their confidence.”
~ Mahabharata
“The VIRTUE GAINED BY ABSTINENCE FROM MEAT-EATING IS SO GREAT that it cannot be equaled by the virtue of making gifts of even, gold, cow, or land.”
~ Mahabharata Anusasana Parva
“What is the good way? It is the path that reflects on how it may AVOID KILLING ANY CREATURE.”
~ Tirukural
“All that lives will press palms together in PRAYERFUL ADORATION OF THOSE WHO REFUSE TO SLAUGHTER AND SAVOR MEAT.”
~ Tirukural
“What is virtuous conduct? It is never destroying life, for killing leads to every other sin.”
~ Tirukural
“Those who are ignorant of real dharma and, though wicked and haughty, account themselves virtuous, kill animals without any feeling of remorse or fear of punishment. Further, in their next lives, such sinful persons will be eaten by the same creatures they have killed in this world.”
Dharma means true teaching.
~ Srimad Bhagavatam
“Meat can never be obtained without injury to living creatures, and injury to sentient beings is detrimental to the attainment of heavenly bliss; let him therefore shun the use of meat. Having well considered the disgusting origin of flesh and the cruelty of fettering and slaying corporeal beings, let him entirely ABSTAIN FROM EATING FLESH.”
~ Manu-samhita
“He who permits the slaughter of an animal, he who cuts it up, he who kills it, he who buys or sells meat, he who cooks it, he who serves it up, and he who eats it, must all be considered as the slayers of the animal. There is no greater sinner than that man who seeks to increase the bulk of his own flesh by the flesh of other beings.”
~ Manu-samhita
“By subsisting on pure fruits and roots, and by eating food fit for ascetics in the forest, one does not gain so great a reward as by ENTIRELY AVOIDING THE USE OF FLESH. He will devour me in the next world, whose flesh I eat in this life; the wise declare this to be the real meaning of the word ‘flesh.’”
~ Manu-samhita
“By not killing any living being, one becomes fit for salvation.”
~ Manu-samhita
“The sins generated by violence curtail the life of the perpetrator. Therefore, even THOSE WHO ARE ANXIOUS FOR THEIR OWN WELFARE SHOULD ABSTAIN FROM MEAT EATING.”
~ Mahabharata Anusasana Parva
“Cow killers are condemned to rot in hellish life for as many thousands of years as there are hairs on the body of the cow.”
~ Adi-lila
“Since you cannot bring killed animals back to life, you are responsible for killing them. Therefore, you are going to hell; there is no way for your deliverance.”
~ Adi-lila
“The very name of cow is Aghnya, indicating that they should never be slaughtered. Who then could slay them? Surely, ONE WHO KILLS A COW OR A BULL COMMITS A HEINOUS CRIME.”
Aghnya means “not to be killed.”
~ Mahabharat Shantiparv
“O best of Kings! If the things, acquired by injuring others, be utilized in any auspicious act, they yield contrary results at the time of fruition.”
~ Devi Bhagavatam
“Since, O thou of great splendor, the period of life is shortened of persons who slaughter living creatures or cause them to be slaughtered, it is clear that the person who wishes his own good should GIVE UP MEAT ENTIRELY.”
~ Mahabharata

“You see, eating animal flesh, meaning we are decreasing our love in our being, from our structure, holy structure. We are born from God, we were holy, we were true humans, we were true children of God. But if we eat the animals, then the mixing of blood type and genetic code between human and animals makes us lose our status as the crown of creation, as true humans. As pure humans, the children of God, we are under direct connection with the Light, with the mighty Master power of the commanding center of the universe. We have absolute command over all under Heaven, because we were pure, and we’re children of God. But as we keep putting different elements into our beings, even physically, it will affect our spiritual structure as well. Because we became mix-ling, mixing structure, not pure, we became hybrid, vulnerable to attack from the dark force, because we are not pure anymore. Thus, this kind of mix-ling creature could be annihilated, because this mix-ling creature sends very confusing energy, confusing message into the center of the universe. It’s not recognized as pure human. So we could be eliminated, out of the physical realm, to be recycled, to be screened out for pureness again and to be reused. But this process can be very painful and torturous, over long periods, could be hundreds of thousands of Earth years.”

 

“Everybody knows that vegetarian (vegan) diet is good for health and to save the planet. They will be awakening their own great, compassionate, loving self-nature. And then their level of consciousness will rise up automatically. And they will understand more than they ever did. And they will be closer to Heaven than what they are right now.”
