Permission for Non-Vegetarian Food / Animal Sacrifice

(4) Permission for Non-Vegetarian Food / Animal Sacrifice: Detailed Points

Ramayana: 2:20:29. (Rama says) “I shall live in a solitary forest like a sage for fourteen years, leaving off MEAT and living with roots, fruits and honey” (Valmiki Ramayana: Ayodhya Kand/Kanda/Kandam: Book 2 - Book of Ayodhya: Sarga (Chapter) 20: Verse 29).

Ramayana: 2:20:17-18. There, Rama saw the articles of worship kept ready for the purpose of the sacred ceremony like curd, unbroken rice, clarified butter, sweet MEATS, things fit for oblation, fried grain, garlands made of white flowers, rice boiled in milk, mixture of rice and peas with a few spices, sacrificial sticks, vessels full of water etc.

Ramayana: 1:14:30-33. In that ritual (Asvamedha Yagna) ANIMALS serpents and birds designated to such and such deities are readied according to the scriptural directives.
The sages have arranged those animals that are to be there in animal SACRIFICES, like horse and other aquatic animals, in that ritual according to scriptures.
Three hundred animals are tied to the ritual posts, along with the gemlike best ritual horse of that King Dasharatha.
With great delight coming on her Queen Kausalya reverently made circumambulations to the horse, and symbolically KILLED the horse with three knives.

Manu Smriti: 5:29-30. What is destitute of motion is the food of those endowed with locomotion; (ANIMALS) without fangs (are the food) of those with fangs, those without hands of those who possess hands, and the timid of the bold. The eater who daily even devours those destined to be his food, COMMITS NO SIN; for the creator himself created both the eaters and those who are to be eaten (for those special purposes).

Manu Smriti: 5: 39. Svayambhu (the Self-existent) himself created animals for the sake of sacrifices; sacrifices (have been instituted) for the good of this whole (world); hence the slaughtering (of BEASTS) for sacrifices is NOT SLAUGHTERING (in the ordinary sense of the word).

Mahabharata: Anushasana Parva (Book 13): 88. With the meat of the BUFFALO their gratification lasts for eleven months. With BEEF presented at the Sraddha, their gratification, it is said, lasts for a full year. Payasa mixed with ghee is as much acceptable to the Pitris as beef. With the MEAT of the Vadhrinasa the gratification of the Pitris lasts for twelve years. 1 The flesh of the RHINOCERES, offered to the Pitris on the anniversaries of the lunar days on which they died, becomes inexhaustible. The potherb called Kalasaka, the petals of the Kanchana flower, and meat of the GOAT also, thus offered, prove inexhaustible. 2 In this connection, O Yudhishthira, there are some verses, originally sung by the Pitris, that are sung (in the world). They were communicated to me in former days by Sanatkumara.--He that has taken birth in our race should give us Payasa mixed with ghee on the thirteenth day (of the dark fortnight), under the constellation Magha, during the Sun's southward course. One born in our race should, under the constellation Magha, as if in the observance of a vow, offer the MEATof goat or the petals of the Kanchana flower. One should also offer us, with due rites, Payasa mixed with ghee, dedicating it on a spot covered by the shadow of an elephant.--Many sons should be coveted so that even one may go to Gaya (for performing the Sraddha of his ancestors), where stands the banian that is celebrated over all the worlds and that makes all offerings made under its branches inexhaustible. 3 Even a little of water, roots, fruits, MEAT, and rice, mixed with honey, if offered on the anniversary of the day of death becomes inexhaustible.


Bible: Deuteronomy 14:4-6.
These are the beasts which ye shall EAT: the ox, the sheep, and the goat,
The hart, and the roebuck, and the fallow deer, and the wild goat, and the pygarg, and the wild ox, and the chamois.
And every beast that parteth the hoof, and cleaveth the cleft into two claws, and cheweth the cud among the BEASTS, that ye shall EAT.

Bible: Deuteronomy 14:11.
Of all clean BIRDS ye shall EAT.

Bible: Leviticus 11:3. Whatsoever parteth the hoof, and is clovenfooted, and cheweth the cud, among the BEASTS, that shall ye EAT.

Quran: 5:2. Lawful unto you (for food) are all four-footed ANIMALS, with the exceptions named: But animals of the chase are forbidden while ye are in the sacred precincts or in pilgrim garb: for God doth command according to His will and plan.

Quran: 6:142. Of the CATTLE are some for burden and some for MEAT: eat what God hath provided for you, and follow not the footsteps of Satan: for he is to you an avowed enemy.

Quran: 16:5. And CATTLE He has created for you (men): from them ye derive warmth, and numerous benefits, and of their (MEAT) ye eat.

Quran: 23:21. And in CATTLE (too) ye have an instructive example: from within their bodies We produce (milk) for you to drink; there are, in them, (besides), numerous (other) benefits for you; and of their (MEAT) ye eat;


Discussion:

I've been asked by many of my friends about the Islamic way of slaughtering animals, and the reason behind doing so in a specific manner called 'Halaal' slaughtering. Although it's hard to prove which method of killing is the most painless, I can just suggest a video which could be giving some insight about the way Muslims slaughter the animals; and also it should show that this is the best way of slaughtering by pacifying the animals.

The video is available at the following link:

  1. Beef Eating In HinduismApril 14, 2015 at 10:21 AM

    �� IS BEEF EATING ALLOWED FOR HINDUS??
    ��A recent photograph of some Hindu protesters demanding a ban on non-vegetarian food made me sit up and take notice on Vedaas.
    �� I believe that these protesters are ignorant of what their religion preaches.
    They are simply going against their own religious scriptures.
    ������
    ⚪ Manusmriti (Chapter5/Verse 30):"It is not sinful to eat meat of eatable animals, for God has created both the eaters and the eatables".
    ⚪ Aapastanba Grishsutram (1/3/10): says, "The cow should be slaughtered on the arrival of a guest, on the occasion of 'Shraaddha of ancestors and on the occasion of a marriage".
    ⚪ Rigveda (10/85/13): declares "On the occasion of a girls marriage oxen and cows are slaughtered".
    ⚪ Rigveda (6/17/1): states that, "Indra used to eat the meat of cow, calf, horse and buffalo".��
    ⚪ Vashishta Dharmasutra (11/34): says, "If a Brahmin refuses to eat the meat offered to him on the occasion of, 'Shraaddha' he goes to hell"��.
    ⚪ Hinduisms great propagator Swami Vivekaanand said thus: "You will be surprised to know that according to ancient Hindu rite and rituals, a man cannot be a good Hindu who does not eat beef".��
    (The complete works of Swami Vivekanand Vol : 3/5/36)
    ⚪ The book "The History and Culture Of The Indian People" published by Bharatiya Vidya Bhawan, Bombay and edited by renowned historian R C Majumdar (Vol 2, page 18) says: This is said in the Mahabharata that "King Ratinder used to kill 2000 other animals in addition to 2000 cows daily in order to give their meat in charity"��.
    ⚪ Aadi Shankaracharya's commentary on Brahadaranyakopanishad 6/4/18 says: 'Odaan' rice mixed with meat is called 'maansodan' on being asked whose meat it should be, he answers 'Uksha' is used for an ox, which is capable to produce semen.��
    ♥Dear hindoo brothers and sisters what should we follow??
    Religious books or communal political parties??
