Questioner: What would you comment on Non-Veg. food?

Dadashri: Some youngsters are not eating meat, etc as they have vowed not to eat Non-veg. The habit of eating non-veg food perishes if the vow is taken from me (Dadashri). Good culture should always be followed. We have found Dada, so these roots of right-culture and conduct will be achieved. The culture which prevailed during Satyug (time cycle where Truth prevailed) will again be revived. A child of this country (India) is fully capable of countering the weight of all worldly influences. He only needs to be nourished. Have you killed insects, such as worms, cockroaches, etc?

Non Violence And Non Veg Inner



Questioner:
Yes, Killed many types of insects.

Dadashri:
Can you kill a human child?

Questioner:
No. No.

Dadashrl:
You can't kill a human child! Why not? You have killed insects, can you manufacture it? I will reward you with one hundred thousand rupees if you can.

Questioner:
No.

Dadashrl:
So, we cannot kill that which we cannot produce. We can manufacture this chair and we may destroy it. Do you understand? What will you do now?

Questioner:
Will not kill henceforth.

Dadashri:
Doesn't that insect feel fear? Does it not try to run away when you approach to kill it?

Questioner:
Yes

Dadashrl:
Then how can you kill it? These grains of wheat, maize, vegetables etc, do they tend to run away when we approach to cut them with a knife?

Questioner:
No. Then what should I do with the habit of eating Non-veg.?

Dadashri:
You should eat vegetables. You must do "pratikraman" (repentance) for having eaten non-veg. by recallingall such incidents and ask for forgiveness from all the souls that resided within it, at least an hour daily for a week. Otherwise, each life that you have killed will harbor enmity and seek revenge. So now do pratikraman heartily and those sins will be washed out.Non-vegetarian food inflicts obstacles on functioning of the human mind, making it incapable to judge what is right or wrong for him. He loses sense to understand what is good or bad for him.The obstacles created are very profound and affect human psychology.
