Ahims avegetarianism

  1. 1. AHIMSAVEGETARIANISM
  2. 2. In the regeneration anddivinization of man, thefirst step is to eliminate thebeastly nature. The predominant trait in beasts is cruelty. Therefore, wise sages prescribed ahimsa. This is a most effective master- method to counteract and eradicate completely the brutal, cruel pashutva - bhava in man.
  3. 3. “ ahimsa .. Is universal love ” Practice of ahimsadevelops love.. ahimsa.. Isanother name for truth orlove. ahimsa.. Is universallove. It is pure love. It isdivine ‘ prem ’. Wherethere is love, there isahimsa. The one message of allsaints, prophets of all timesand climes, is the messageof love, of ahimsa, ofselfless service.
  4. 4. Ahimsa.. Is the noblest andbest of traits that are foundexpressed in the daily life andactivities of perfected souls. Ahimsa.. Is the one means,not only to attain salvation,but also to enjoyuninterrupted peace and bliss.Man attains peace by injuringno living creature.
  5. 5. “ ahimsa.. duty of man ” There is one religion… thereligion of love, of peace. Thereis one message, the message ofahimsa. Ahimsa is a supremeduty of man. Ahimsa, or refraining fromcausing pain to any livingcreature, is a distinctive qualityemphasized by Indian ethics. Ahimsa, or non-violence, hasbeen the central doctrine ofIndian culture from the earliestdays of its history.
  6. 6. “ ahimsa.. great spiritual force ” Ahimsa, or non-injury, means entireabstinence from causingany pain or harmwhatsoever to any livingcreature. Non-injuryneeds a harmless mind,mouth and hand. Ahimsa is truesacrifice .. Ahimsa isforgiveness.. Ahimsa is ‘shakti ’ .. Ahimsa is truestrength.
  7. 7. If you are established in ahimsa,you have attained all virtues. Ahimsa is the pivot. All virtuesrevolve round ahimsa. Just as all foot-prints get accommodated in those ofthe elephant, so also do all religionsand ethical rules become merged in thegreat vow of ahimsa.
  8. 8. “ ahimsa.. Is soul force ” Ahimsa.. Is soul-force. Hate melts in thepresence of love. Hatedissolves in thepresence of ahimsa.There is no powergreater than ahimsa.The practice of ahimsadevelops will-power to aconsiderable degree.The practice of ahimsawill make you fearless.
  9. 9. Man is more than just body andmind; human birth is given as anopportunity and a means to attainthe sublime knowledge of his innerspiritual nature and to regain hisdivinity. In this process, all gross-nessand animalistic tendencies have tobe totally eliminated from thehuman personality.
  10. 10. “ pure sattvic diet ” Non-vegetarian diet.. which isgross and animal by its very nature..Is a great hindrance to this process..Whereas, pure sattvic diet is a greathelp to the refinement of the humannature. The chemical components ofdifferent foods vibrate at varyingrate. Each practical of food is a massof energy.
  11. 11. The in-take of certain foodstuffssets up discordant vibrations in thephysical body which throw the mindinto a state of oscillation anddisequilibrium. Moreover, flesh-eating involvesthe exercise which is not an elevatingvirtue. It is a bestial quality whichdegrades man.
  12. 12. “ butchery.. A great disgrace ” The cruel slaughter of animals and the takingof innocent lives which flesh-eating entailsmakes it abhorrent to all right thinking men andwomen all over the world. Butchery and bloodshed is a great disgraceto civilization and culture. Killing of animals forfood is a great blunder; and the mentality itengenders is fraught with potential dangers forthe life of humanity, a recognition of whichmade George Bernard Shaw say that :
  13. 13. “ AS LONG AS MEN TORTURE ANDSLAY ANIMALS AND EAT THEIRFLESH, WE SHALL HAVE WAR ”.All slaughter-houses should beabolished, and the use of animal fleshas food should be absolutely given up.Flesh-eating is unnecessary,unnatural, and unwholesome.
