If Sikhs Are Vegetarian Because We Respect Life, Then Should We Also Be Vegan?

Recommended Posts

This has been bothering me for some time now. It is as the title says...

A very poor argument in a very poor topic.

Why you want to discuss something that will never end rather than focus on issues in the Panth, I dont know.

Because Sikhi teaches us to respect and value all living creatures? Yet they are still being exploited? If that's not an issue to you, I don't know why you're here.

There are many things that may 'never end'. Racism, sexism, rape, murder, shall we consider them 'poor topics' as well?

Also, what you just quoted wasn't an argument, it was a question. A very poor reply from your behalf, if anything.

Read Gurbani, and then you will know what "living creatures" are.

I'm sure Gurbani teaches us that a cow is a living creature, a four year old could you a cow is a living creature. It is an animal, and it is alive, and this topic is about cows.

Now unless you're going to show me Gurbani that says a cow is not a living creature, I no longer understand your participation here.

no its not difficult , or you can have a goat ,

besides nothing beats the authentic , goa smell of punjab pind haha

you can make cow dung cakes old school , which you can use latter to burn your chulla for food :))

selling to butchers happns a lot in west

Perhaps in India or in rural areas this would not be such an issue, but unfortunately I speak as someone living in the industrial West where this happens. Perhaps this post speaks more to them than it would to those back in the Punjab pind :)

Thank you.

Read it first in AGGS on what is a living thing and then we can discuss it further. If you cant find it, then I will point it out for you.

Apologies for asking, but could you please point it out for me please?

Thank you.

Posters should be careful otherwise this thread will become closed just like other similar threads on this topic.

Apologies, I am new here, but what would cause the thread to become closed?

Cows and cattle being treated in the manner discuessed in this thread is due to INDUSTRIALIZATION of the Milk Industry that has no regard or respect for the animal.
Puratan Sikhs from Guru Sahib's time didnt treat their animals in this way.

Kheer(milk) based pudding is also mentioned being served in Guru Ka Langgar in Raamkali Ki Vaar.

People here should avoid INFUSING PETA agenda into Sikhi.
Milk is allowed in Sikhi. Period.

Of-course there is no harm in working toward getting it from sources that produce it MORE ETHICALLY.

Great topic, well done to the poster.

This questions has been on my mind for some time now. I totally agree it is better to be vegan.

Just wondering how many other Gursikhs are following a vegan lifestyle?

Come on! Someone so dedicated to showing the Sikhs howq wrong we are, and you can't do a search on gurbani?

Better to ask if your Guru followed it first.

    • I won't dispute that you got yeast in India in 2015 from yeast flying around. But if you look at the wording of the original poster, BigTera, that's not what he said.  He implied that if you wear a turban, you'll get "yeast formation" as if it will spring up spontaneously: "All that heat and sweat from wearing a head covering all day gets trapped causing excess moisture and itching build up which makes dandruff worse. ie yeast formation." That's what I said doesn't happen, even in India. There are 1.3 billion people in India. 1.3 billion don't have yeast. There are 25 million or so Sikhs in India. Maybe 10 million keshadhari. 10 million don't have yeast. Some certainly do have dandruff or other problems, but so do non-Sikhs in the West. I mean, who do you think is the market for Head & Shoulders Shampoo? It's false and a slander on Guru's form to suggest that wearing a turban with long hair necessarily leads to dandruff and yeast.
    • Waheguru Ji Ka Khalsa Waheguru Ji Ki Fateh ji. Upon seeing a forum, I decided to get the sangat opinion too. I myself am a teen. I am 15. I love to go to gurdwara camps because you get a lot a laha and you get to learn how to be a better person. I am speaking about youths in my country Malaysia. When I go to camps, I speak to many people. They all become my friend. I am not sure of the male gender tho but I have a few guys and girls asking me if I am single or if I have a crush on someone or if I would like to be in a relationship. I always say to them that I am not here to find a partner and I am very very opposed with this type of thinking. I don't like it at all when I got to camps, only to find out the youth are interested in all nonsense about boyfriend and girlfriend and crush etc. 🤦 There some amazing souls too that I meet during these camps. Some youth like me also do sewa and come to camp to build a stronger relationship with guru maharaj. I am very blessed to have met these type of youth too. Probably I have matured thinking. I don't know but sometimes it's upsetting that it's very rare I get the true sangat from going to camps. For an instance, in a camp I would have to mix around people my age ( in the teens) and I can't be sitting around people with the age of 20's above. It would look really odd. But maharaj does his kirpa and I always prefer sitting in the darbar rather than anywhere else because no one can disturb me there and many people avoid talking rubish in the darbar sahib because guru maharaj is watching them.what they don't realise is guru maharaj sees them everywhere, in the Langar hall or in the park. Writing this I have made a lot of mistakes, I am not good,no one is bad. Please forgive me sangat and teach me so that I can be a better person.     
    • Yeah, during this days, i have been closer to my elder sister as she always guides me how to tie a dastaar and she always invites me to rehraas sahib together. Eventough I am a little introvert, maharaj definitely will do his kirpa. Now I am wondering,how did my sister walk through the path because she was the first one in my family to be blessed with amrit. It must be really hard for her. It's easy for me tho thanks to maharaj. Anyways,thank you dear sangat for your advice and support. Maharaj always bless true sangat like you phena ji.
    • Same bro. I find the concept of mermaids really interesting. I find the unknown in general interesting.
