Vegetarian Diet And मुनि Dharma


Reading Ramayana and Mahabharata clears many Grihasthi doubts. Try to read the original source and भाषांतर/टिका in मातृभाषा . Lot to learn.

Your diet changes with your terrain and end-goal. Here is something suggested by Lord Rama.

Book II : Ayodhya Kanda – Book Of Ayodhya

Chapter[Sarga] 20

Rama approaches his mother Kausalya to inform her of the calamity. Kausalya on hearing the news, faints. On recovering, she laments in the most grevious tones to Rama.

चतुर्दश हि वर्षाणि वत्स्यामि विजने वने |
मधु मूल फलैः जीवन् हित्वा मुनिवद् आमिषम् || २-२०-२९

“I shall live in a solitary forest like a sage for fourteen years, leaving off meat and living with roots, fruits and honey”.

Please note:

– Living like a sage
– leaving off meat
– living with roots,fruits and honey

Instead of wasting time in Veg vs Non-veg debates, strive food suitable for your innate prakriti, available locally, helping you to achieve end-goal (dharma).

Word मुनि is important. It is related to immunity. In highly dynamic environment of Jungle, middle of ample kills available, Bhagwan prefers vegetarian diet. Why? 🙂
