This has been bothering me for some time now. It is as the title says, why does our respect for life stop with vegetarianism? When I suggest Sikhs should consider becoming vegan, it is become of the

kudos to poster ... No animal in nature drinks other species' milk. And no animal drinks even their own mother's milk after being weaned. In earlier times milk was needed coz there were not enough

Also as sikhs we fight Zulm ....so why not extend it to poor dairy animals , rather than be a part of it You need niether

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.

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.

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

Thank you.

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

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

Better to ask if your Guru followed it first.
