Be loosed, inviolable, Godward-farers! We have attained
the limit of this darkness: we have won the light.
“Bhishma said: That man who wishes to increase his own flesh by the meat of another living creature is such that there is none meaner and more cruel than he. In this world there is nothing that is dearer to a creature than his life. Hence, one should show mercy to the lives of others as he does to his own life. Forsooth, O son, flesh has its origin in the vital seed. There is great sin attached to its eating, as, indeed, there is merit in abstaining from it. ( Mahabharata 116.11-13) 4000 BC
Maa gaamanaagaamaditim vadhishta - Rigveda 8.101.15
Firstly note the insistence of using small letters for the cow here. And then chastising those as weak minded who think worshipping a common cow is as worshipping Aditi!
The original and complete verse:
contemplates his adversary's ill luck, for the Tretâ a
gamble-manager; for the Dvâpara a chief manager; for Askanda
one who will not leave the gambling-hall; for Mrityu one
who approaches cows; for Antaka a Cow-killer; for
Hunger one who goes begging to a man who is cutting
up a cow; for Misdeed a leader of the Charakas; for
Misery a robber;
2 Indra aids him who offers sacrifice and gifts: he takes not what is his, and gives him more thereto.
Increasing ever more and ever more his wealth, he makes the pious dwell within unbroken bounds.
3 These are ne'er lost, no robber ever injures them: no evil-minded foe attempts to harass them.
The master of the Kine lives many a year with these, the Cows whereby he pours his gifts and serves
These Cows, the cattle of the pious worshipper, roam over widespread pasture where no danger is.
5 To me the Cows seem Bhaga, they seem Indra, they seem a portion of the first-poured Soma.
These present Cows, they, O ye Indra. I long for Indra with my heart and spirit.
6 O Cows, ye fatten e'en the worn and wasted, and make the unlovely beautiful tolook on.
Prosper my house, ye with auspicious voices. Your power is glorified in our assemblies.
7 Crop goodly pasturage and be prolific drink pure sweet water at good drinking places.
Never be thief or sinful man your matter, and may the dart of Rudra still avoid you.
8 Now let this close admixture be close intermigled with these Cows,
Mixt with the Steer's prolific flow, and, Indra, with thy hero might.
I dont think I will be discussing Mahabharata quotes anymore for reasons mentioned before and the comments by Jam about how a good chunk of Mahabharata was actually composed in the medieval era.
ghrtam duhaanaam aditim janaayeti | . . . eshu lokeshwanam maa himsaareeti ||.
Please cite the verse
Na mamsam Raghava bhunkte, na chaiva madhu sevate, Vanyam suvihitam nityam bhaktamsnati panchamam.
Shining with mighty beams of light harm not my people
with thy form.
One need not have ill feeling towards a cow in order to eat it!
Do not injure the beings living on the earth, in the air and in the water. - Yajur Veda- 5000 BC
[Manusmriti, Mahabharat references deleted]
Flesh-eating, drinking, gambling and adultery, all, destroy and mar the mental faculties of a man (Atharva VI.7-70-71)
wood, the potent Khadira, for strength,
This Charm hath Indra put on him for power and manly
t yieldeth strength to strengthen him, again, again, from morn
to morn, having approached the deities.
Protect both our species, two-legged and four-legged. Both food and water for their needs supply. May they with us increase in stature and strength. Save us from hurt all our days, O Powers! - Rig Veda 10.37.11. VE, 319
springs to life amid the waters!
The rivers’ tawny child, based on the mountain, harm not,
O Agni, in the loftiest region.
gaam maa himseeraditim viraajam ||
with repeated homage.
Forming thyself with joints in proper order, harm not the
Cow, Aditi widely ruling!
We have already established the Cow and Aditi. Once again this is addressed to Agni to not harm Aditi, mother of Gods. Again note capital C for the Cow!
LISTEN, I AM NOT IN THE HABIT OF PROVIDING PROOFS- when CHOOTS ask me for proofs my usual answer to them is "FU#K OFF!"
Did you even check for yourself the veracity of the quotes or were you simply content to copy and paste them from the site of yet another ignoramus(Agni Veer) and yet again without giving due credit to the original author! How shameless can your plagiarism get?
Hahahahahahahahahahaha! Thank you captain. I haven't laughed like this in a while. I do believe that you are actually deranged enough to think PM Modi has an obligation to religiously follow your site. And if he doesn't, dammit you will MAKE him follow it, hence the instructions to all your minions to post your regurgitated nonsense in the website and twitter feed in his and all the BJP party members.
The white invader imported Gandhi from South Africa to secure Ahimsa for themselves , to save their own deceitful white asses .
Chapter and verse. As you can see I have ZERO confidence in the veracity of the interpretation of the Vedic verses you provide.
The Maharishis saw life as the very stuff of the Divine, an emanation of the Source and part of a cosmic continuum. They held that each life form, even water and trees, possesses consciousness and energy.
If trees and water also possessed consciousness , wouldn't be they criminals by your definition if they ate fruits, herbs and drank water?
Nonviolence, ahimsa, the primary basis of vegetarianism, has long been central to the religious traditions of India- especially Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. Religion in India has consistently upheld the sanctity of life, whether human, animal or, in the case of the Jains, elemental.
There is no greater sinner than that non-vegetarian man who seeks to increase the bulk of his own flesh by the flesh of other beings
The word GAU also means the Earth and the yajna dedicated to keep the Earth the environment clean is called Gomedha Yajna. To keep the food pure or to keep the senses under control, to keep the earth free from pollution is called Gomedha Yajna .
