I am also of the same view.I dont get the reason people give for being vegie(when they r not fully veggie). Few popular ones are: 1) Killing is cruel: then why do we kill plants and why dont we liv

I try to be as strict as possible, striving to be at the VEGAN level, but I guess Vegans don't even drink milk, or eat cheese, because COWS are pressured to give milk, and never give it on their own a

Even the yogurt with flavors, such as strabery flavor, or peach flavor have kosher gelatin in it. Make sure you read the labels carefully

The diary products are made out of milk and milk is called Amrit in Gurbani. Therefore, milk is a vegetarian diet. Read the following tuk:

pasoo mileh chang-aa-ee-aa kharh khaaveh amrit deh.

naam vihoonay aadmee Dharig jeevan karam karayhi. ||3||

Even beasts have value, as they eat grass and give Amrit (milk).

Without the Naam, the mortal`s life is cursed, as are the actions he performs. ||3||

i beleive milk is only amrit for hindus, and this tuk may have been addressed to them. We obviously have a different idea of what amrit is..

I was thinking about hte vegan aspect and sikhi etc.. sikhi is meant to be universal etc etc.. ive found eveyrthing in sikhi could even apply to aliens and whatever else, its so beautiful, but one thing ive been thinking about lately is degh!! what happens if all the cows go extinct? or like the earth gets destroyed and we are living in space somewhere with no cows ahaha, then no more degh? or do we create a new degh recipe? i mean we can make butter out of like soy, soy butter, but hte question is, is this ok?

because the power of degh is not in the flour, water, sugar or butter, its in the naam, bani and ardas right?

Jio, its not whether to drink milk or not.... its whether miling a cow is hurting or not... like forced! That is what daljeet tried to say. India they manually milk a cow... well in the pind :@ Here they use forcible machines... but i still drink milk ... milk is energy love it... i actually drink more milk then anythin like when im thirsty no water but straight milk.

And thanks all for great responses to this post. I use to eat a lot of meat before ... like breakfast, snacks, dinner, lunch ... EVERYTHIN ... meat meat meat... now for 2 years ... strict vege. I read all labels and try to stay away from gelatin and rennet guru kirpa naal. :@

Hope everyone the best if ur trying to quit.... not that hard envelope.gif

I'm a strict vegetarian. I was raised in a vegetarian family, so I have never had any meat or eggs in my lfe. Waheguru Ji De Kirpa. I always read all lables and everything. I do have one question regarding gelatin. As I unsderstand it, there are two types of gelatin one that comes from animals and the other from plants. How do know which is used in what? For example, the other day I had some Skittles. After having some, I read the package and it said it contained gelatin. How do I know that it is the animal kind and not the one from plants? I did do ardaas for forgiveness just to be safe. Any one have any facts?

I'm not sure about Cows lol

but IF im not wrong

they HAVE TO BE MILKED

orelse they Die

its not like they're tortured

I mean its a PAIN for the cow if the milk isn't 'take out'

I even read that now a days

theres machines, where if the cow feelst that it has 2 take out milk

thye can go to the machine itself :)

I don't liek the conept of 'vegan'

bhull chukk maaf

If we look at hurting the animals then horse riding is also like hurting the horse.Or there are many things doctors test on animals first.I have seen many monkeys in chandigarh who has lost their senses due to their continious use in testing certain medicines.There are certain analgesic medicines which are partially made out of animal fats or other things.How do we justify that?

Even some soaps are made of animal fats.Some oils are made out of animal fats.Even the white grained sugar is treated with animal fat.There are so many things in our daily life which we use unknowingly.

And if we look at musical instuments (like tabla) they are also made out of animal skin...but I think usually they make these instruments from dead animals.Same is the case with juttiyan or shoes.

I think if somebdy is leaving meat for health reasons then he shud be vegan also, as milk as has the same animal fat.They shud not eat cakes , yogurt etc also.

But if somebdy is leaving meat cuz of religious reasons then he has to avoid everything except milk and other milk products( which doesn't hurt cows , as Mr Singh ji told us)

By the way, why COW's system is different from human regarding milk?I think God gave milk to the cow for her calf not for us.Why COW has to milked for HUMANS?IF it(not milking) hurts the cow then it(milk) belongs to the calf not us.

What do u guyz think?

Thnx

I have been reading this post and I really think we all should keep Sarbloh Bibek. Then we would not have any of these problem.

Now I belive that Sarbloh Bibek is a must of all Gursikhs, and it should be our aim to keep Sarbloh Bibek, and not say any thing to the Gursikh that keeps Sarbloh Bibek rehat.

So every please try keeping Sarbloh Bibek this will help the Khalsa have unity and a steping stone to Khalsa Raja.
