2012-12-06 12:16:54 -0600 answered a question Non-veg and Sikhism

So here it is. I came across this Wiki page (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DietinSikhism) that says these following lines are from SGGS ji:

First Mehl: The fools argue about flesh and meat, but they know nothing about meditation and spiritual wisdom. What is called meat, and what is called green vegetables? What leads to sin? It was the habit of the gods to kill the rhinoceros, and make a feast of the burnt offering. Those who renounce meat, and hold their noses when sitting near it, devour men at night. They practice hypocrisy, and make a show before other people, but they do not understand anything about meditation or spiritual wisdom. O Nanak, what can be said to the blind people? They cannot answer, or even understand what is said. They alone are blind, who act blindly. They have no eyes in their hearts. They are produced from the blood of their mothers and fathers, but they do not eat fish or meat.

But, the original Gurumukhi text has not been provided, also, I am not able to trace out what page it has been taken from. If this is true then it means eating non-veg has nothing to do with religion/spirituality and in PARTICULAR SIKHISM...

aNYone wants to say something about this??

Dear Warrior, The link you provided above in the last comment is most significant. I hope more and more people come across it and contemplate over it. What I could infer from these shabads is that one may choose to eat or not eat but one must not let oneself become form a habit or get too indulged.

Dear Warrior,

I appreciate your argument. I saw the link you have posted. It looks very logical. But, my question is: on what pages from Sri Guru Granth Sahib has this information been taken from. This website says that all this info is from Sri Guru Granth Sahib, doesn`t it?

2012-12-01 05:25:25 -0600 asked a question when is amrit vela?

Waheguru ji ka Khalsa. Waheguru ji ki Fateh!

When is amrit vela? When does it start? When does it end?

I read at on a website that amrit vela is between 4:30 to 5:30. Is this true?

I have two questions for you:

1) Where is this information written, i.e non-veg is allowed under these 5 situations? 2) You said non-veg is allowed in childhood (number 4). WHY? And if yes, who decides when childhood is over and one becomes adult?

So, you are suggesting that plants are not living? Just because we do not hear or understand their language means they are not alive? Are plants not innocent?

What does Sikhism say about eating non-veg?

When did pratha of "Jhatka" start?

2012-11-26 23:27:12 -0600 asked a question Do`s and Don`ts for doing Chaliye (40 days)

Waheguru ji ka Khalsa. Waheguru ji ke Fateh!

I want to start chaliye for a sukh. Are there any specific dos and donts for doing chaliye for a sukh?

What about non-veg? I will obviously not eat it during the chaliye but should I ask my family members not to cook it in house as well?

I have always been confused about whether or not it is alright to eat non-veg. Though, I do not have much liking to eating it now. One, we hear stories about how Akaal Purakh waheguru ji has created this entire world and we should enjoy it; Second, don`t plants have life?...they are also living beings...if we eat them then why not non-veg?

I have tried to look online about what did Guru Nanakji say about the matter, or did he even thought of it as a subject of conversation? Any mention about the matter in Guru gRanth Sahib? Or Dasam Granth?

Kindly let me know what is the maryada for doing chaliye?
