Does Gurbani Prohibit Eating Meat? Different people have different views on whether consumption of meat by a Sikh is allowed. Some feel it is prohibited while others feel there is no prohibition. Let us make an effort to understand what Gurbani says. Those who think meat is not to be taken by a Sikh quote the following: The immediate reaction on reading the hymn will be that Bhagat Kabir Ji is dissuading people from eating meat.
Firstly there is only mention of killing and not eating; Secondly he mentions God being present in all including the bird being killed so there must be a context to this Shabad. The context is clear when we read further: It is therefore clear that the context is sacrifice of creature to propitiate God or any other deity.
Hence Kabir Ji is dissuading people from sacrifices. Bhagat Kabir also says in a Slok Couplet: Here Kabir Ji is dissuading people from taking intoxicants and non-vegetarian food.
This is a stand alone Slok and its context needs to be found from what Kabir Ji says elsewhere. It is well known that indulgence in fish etc and intoxicants leads to vices like violence and lust satisfaction outside marriage or even overindulgence with the spouse.
If we read this with the above Slok it appears that Kabir ji is asking people to understand that indulgence like this will negate all your religious practices.
Further we find that in the SGGS there are specific instructions to avoid intoxicants. There is therefore specific injunction against intoxicants, but it is not so for non-vegetarian food. For example Guru Nanak says: Guru Sahib is pointing out the hypocrisy of the Hindu.
If he wanted to prohibit non-vegetarian food, he could have just said meat or goat and not meat dressed the Muslim way, which is also an edict in the Sikh Reht Maryada.
Such meat is taboo for the Sikh. There is thus no injunction against eating meat but also no advice to eat it. According to Guru Nanak: In other words the Guru asks the Sikhs not to make it an issue.
It is to be kept in mind that we are not to take food or drink: Meat Eating This entry was posted on Monday, May 12th, at 5: You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2. You can leave a responseor trackback from your own site.

Sepia is a recommended homeopathic medicine for treating depression when the patient shows marked indifferent behavior along with symptoms of depression. The indifference is more towards family members/ friends and towards life. They are also averse to do any work.

I wasn’t able to get both showing (I think this is a theme limitation of only being able to display one thing beside each individual comment.
