The writings on vegetarianism are no exception to this. While it's wonderful that vegetarianism and veganism are becoming so mainstream due to the political, animal welfare, global environmental, and physical human health impacts, some might still not quite understand the reason behind so many spiritual paths espousing it as well. The information provided in the Spiritual Benefits of a Vegetarian Diet make it abundantly clear the subtle energetic effects and benefits of a plant-based diet, which can provide even more clarity on why adopting such a diet would be desirable.
The chapter I most love, however, is the one that goes into the Christian views of vegetarianism. So often you hear people using the verse speaking of G-d giving dominion over the animals to man as a justification for their consumption. However, as Swami Nirmalananda Giri lovingly points out, this is really based on mis-translations and misunderstandings of the true context of the scriptures. Without resorting to melodramatics or an overly righteous tone, which can easily turn off someone exploring the topic, you can hear his wisdom and compassion shine through while he highlights the actual Christian teachings on the matter. I absolutely love it!
It's an easy to read offering, which I highly recommend to any and everyone!
There were several repetitious paragraphs that I thought was an editing problem but is just reiterations. It's a good read but I do not believe everyone acts like the meat they eat or take on their lower instincts. There are spiritual masters that have eaten meat and also attained great heights of enlightenment and miracle working.
It is interesting to hear about the effects on our environment of raising more and more animals for food and the waste, pollution and gases that are produced...It is enormous. If more people realized this they would take the vegetarian path.
