Hinduism and non-veg

Well to survive in the forest for 14 years they had to eat something lol.

Ramayan Is a interesting scripture  if you like reading old scriptures  I recommend ramayan. A bit over the top and melancholic at times. 

Main theme is morals and virtues. adultry and sexual sin is repetitive theme. So is loyalty and not breaking promises.

The Mahabharata is superior IMO. The political intrigue, the dynastic and domestic conflicts, and the philosophy of mysticism that underpins it all, just can't be beaten. It's feels a lot more layered and complex compared to the Ramayana even if the latter does share most of those attributes.

If u read the text I posted carefully, Raam calls the meat sacred.

The meat is also called pure.

Is what Raamchandra said dhuri ki Bani/shabad Guru/Gurbani? No, not in the slightest.  Even bhai gurdas  ji Vaar are accepted because Guru sahib gave them the title, key of Gurbani. And bhai Sahib wasn't sent by Vaheguru with powers and the mission to spread Vaheguru name.  Raamchandra was and he miserably failed.  Guru Sahib didn't give Raamchadr saying any importance.  Dasam Bani addresses his behavior and corrects what they said and did. So what does it matter if he called meat pure? Stop being a manmat follower of any group, you obviously are cheerleading for the nihang squad at the moment.  Gurmat is reading Gurbani and holding Gurbani in the heart.  There are key people to learn from in Nihang jathabandi but to hop on the bandwagon so far up the horses arse is no better than the brahmin feeding the stone idol and bathing it in milk.

U r right brother, Raam failed.Infact Gurbani says Vishnu and his avatars r subject to jamm/ kaal.

I try to read it once a year. There's a lot to be learned from a human perspective in terms of the morals and the arguments it raises. A person doesn't have to be a Hindophile to glean something meaningful from the text.

When it comes to other religious scriptures why did Guru Sahib say to read them? Was it to understand how to be moral? Gurbani provides us with spiritual wisdom and morals of the highest kind. It would be counterproductive to look else where for morals. Guru sahib says, give me your head (completely and only focus on the shabad) when you come on the Gurmat path. Guru Sahib tells sikhs to read other religious scriptures because when a Gurmukh has fully attuned his mind with Gurbani he can see naam everywhere. So when reading other religious scripture the Gurmukh can pick up on the naam that is there and serve the humans that are lost in the vedas, gita, bible, Koran, Torah, etc. Also Gurbani makes references on other religious scriptures concepts so we can achieve a total picture of their concepts when reading their scriptures. But many lose sight of the goal and start collecting merchandise (intellectual knowledge and maya)from these scriptures. But Guru Sahib says all merchandise can be achieved from Gurbani. Anand Sahib says this path is sharper than a double edged sword and finer than a hair.  The path of Gurmat can be simple if we follow the instructions of Gurbani or life can be made difficult by losing the purpose in life as Gurbani describes it.

Today we have a major issue with Sikh youth walking into university classes like sociology and walking out extremist.  Whether that be feminist extremist or LGBTQ extremist or atheist.  When it comes to Gurbani these groups and people look for lines or a line of Gurbani and take it out of context to support their extremist LGBTQ beliefs on marriage,  gender being same or new thing no gender or infinite gender.  Like we had the ignorant couple from the states who got married by having his wife walk along with him.  The point being they dont follow Guru Sahib.   They attain 'knowledge' else where and want to force it on Sikhi.   The Sikh youth laugh at the Sikhs who bow at a fake baba's feet.  But, the irony is the Gurmukhs are shaking their head at both of them.  One is bowing to a fake baba and the other is bowing their mind by accepting secular knowledge that will always be in the trial phase.  Neither are better than the other.  The youth of today, and it's been done by a few old farts, attain masters or doctorate in fields like chemistry,  sociology or another field and then say we have a doctorate in Sikhi.  They write articles on what they want Sikhi to be and in their name they put "dr.".  Such deception is being done by these old farts.  Sikhi is about honesty, yet they start their article with deception.   

If you want to be a Sikh, then Sri Guru Granth Sahib ji is the teacher and classroom.  Not your sociology professor who tells you abortion of a 37 week baby is a women birth right choice, but dont kill that cow because imeat industry  is killing the environment,  go vegan.  

In short,  dont be the monkey with the wrench.

    • too many organisation abound and zero coordination as shown in that video I posted about sikh NGOs meeting with authorities in Ludhiana , need was for langar for 100,000 but food for 500,000 was being made on daily basis in this time of hardship, then it was being givem to the same group of people in the same 4 locations by sikhs going one group after another. As the Singh says NO ONE is dying of hunger in the towns as those same labourers are being given food rations and money by either their bosses or the goverment ON TOP of them grabbing up langar and then 'feeding it to our cows because it makes our kids sick' . wheat crops have failed this year due to combination of hailstorms and curfew only 30 % yield , we are wheat eaters  and what is the state government's response ? Not save stored grain for state population but to send 20 trainloads out of Punjab to other states who also have their own crops to eat. Remember this is the same Ahole who OK'd the deliberate flooding of punjab's fields to disrupt farming yields for 5 Years . Punjabis are literally scared to say/do anything that the hindus may object to even if they are totally merciless in diverting all tax revenues to centre , reduce investment in healthcare to such an extent that there is no way hygiene could be maintained . fake medicines have flooded Punjab's markets killing those in need. Sikhs HAVE TO COORDINATE efforts, resources outside of SGPC/RSS/CONGRESS/Akali  control Gurdwarey have to become property of Guru Panth ONLY and serve the people's needs : educational, medical, spiritual, Fitness and Defence. The days of Langar roadshows have to stop , these politicians will have us expend our last penny and cook our last grain to feed others so that we are brought to our knees. Time to put on our airmasks and help all other sikhs put on theirs . Guru ji did not do langar roadshows he made dharamshaley for those who came to His door; he helped and he didn't help those who could help themselves but expected people to do kirit first and if that failed then rely on langar. Our own people are suffering in the villages behind closed doors , don't see many NGOs worrying about them ... It is a truth that the most money collected for charity is by the sikhs in Uk, Canada  and India   we are talking millions of pounds/dollars and then we also donate time, effort food  on top . If we were  coordinated properly there would be proper use of Golak and no replication of effort and wastage . Quite easily we could build the hospital wards, vet clinics, schools colleges  with  which we could  serve our people and others to free education, healthcare , we could educate the nurses, doctors, scientists, engineers we need , we could give/lend money to farmers to switch to organic farming again and permaculture methods . Water preservation/harvesting could be a major target for sikhs as well since we are being squeezed from all sides for our natural river water. Problem is the wrong people are being listened to .
    • yes dasvandh was only meant to protect the gareeb sikhs from being taken advantage of, doing parchaar of gurbani/sursikhi and running pangat (but history shows that sikhs used to donate seperately for degh and pangat)
    • five years training , five year volunteering then 12 years practice . daily dose of 30 c , that was back while I was training
    • We have two major negative tendencies when dealing with outsiders, that are further magnified when they relate to our collective future or fate as a distinct group. Our history has illustrated these traits on repeated occasions: 1. Lack of vision / big-picture thinking. 2. Trusting the wrong people. There's subgroups within these categories, but generally speaking the above areas is where we end up falling on our faces. Modern or very recent phenomena I've noticed that are worsening are: 3. Paralysis of or the allaying of critical faculties that are required to out-maneuver and avoid the fatal machinations of opposing groups, and thus failing in securing our long-term interests.  4. I've mentioned it before, but we are cultivating a suicidal altruism that masquerades behind a veil of piety, but is actually cowardice and an ingratiating desire to appease others at the expense of our own interests, in the delusional hope that such behaviour on our part will be reciprocated at the appropriate time. It never has or will. Other predatory groups immediately recognise this as weakness. In previous eras, such a tribe would be routed and conquered. In the relative peace of the modern age, this trait becomes a terminal illness that destroys the conscience of a people. It's a slow self-inflicted death Vs a sudden massacre at the hand of an enemy. Same end result, though. 5. A craven desire to be lead and controlled by someone who has been vested with unearned authority. This invariably leads to us accepting leadership and ideas that should be rejected from the outset. Spiritual weakness allows this to occur. A personal theory of mine that I'm developing but is in its tentative stages: 6. We're in danger of reducing Sikhi to a humanist philosophy coloured by contemporary political and social ideologies that has gradually diminished the emphasis on mysticism, which is a direct affront to the very roots of our faith. It's the Anglicisation of the Sikh faith particularly in the West. Obviously, overt superstition and other such tendencies are the other extreme end of the spectrum, and isn't desirable.
