Quora collapsed my reply to “Is eating beef right as some Vedas allow Hindus to do so?”

Eating beef is not right and I wonder where are those “some Vedas” which allow Hindus to do so. Please keep in mind that there were and still are vested interest who want to weaken Hindus and who used wrong translations and interpolations of the ancient texts to make Hindus ashamed of their tradition. Many Hindus believed those translations, including big names.

I grew up in the west and there, we were indoctrinated by Christian tenets (and Muslims by Islamic tenets) that nature including animals is there to serve man who is considered ‘the crown of creation”. The result is a brutal bloodbath all over the world with billions animals slaughtered daily worldwide (alone in US around 100,000 cows daily!) Each single one dying a painful death, often skinned while still alive. It is considered “normal”.

Do we have the moral right to do this? Now even in the west some started reflecting and came to the conclusion that we don’t have the right.

Hindu Dharma requires using one’s intelligence. It is not a fixed belief system, like Christianity and Islam.
The Indian rishis realised that a cow particularly is like a mother, gentle and giving. Everything the cow gives is useful, including its urine and dung. Her nature is satvic, pure. Who would kill her? Who would kill any animal unless necessary for some compelling reasons?

Humanity would be more human and ecology would also benefit greatly if this massive brutal slaughter were at least reduced if not fully stopped.

In this 20 minutes video below the actor Tom Alter, who passed away  in 2017 at the age of 67, explains beautifully, interspersed with chanting of the relevant shlokas, what the Vedas say about animal slaughter and eating beef. It settles the issue once for all: There is no beef in the Vedas.

  1. As far as us Brahmins are concerned, no animal should be killed or consumed.

    1. Mr. Ramesh Bashyam garu, which world you are? If you don’t consider my words as offensive, believe me, unfortunately, Brahmins are more corrupted in terms of behavior, eating habits, education knowledge, etc. It looks hard and bitter but then, this is the indigestible true. The world today is so materialistic and unkind to others and changes are evolving every day. Brahmins are not more exceptional to this. Sad that they have forgot their legacy and duties prescribed exclusively to them. When Brahmins go corrupt big way, the world will be more cruel and collapse. I know, when I say this, people either laugh at me and abuse me with vulgar words. Sarvam Krushnarpanamastu.

    वेदों में मांसाहार का भ्रम।
    जिस परम्परा में सामान्य योगसाधक के लिए अहिंसा को प्रथम सोपान कहा गया हो, जहाँ मन, वचन, कर्म से कहीं भी व कभी भी सभी प्राणियों के प्रति वैर त्याग अर्थात् प्रीति का संदेश दिया गया हो, वहाँ सिद्धपुरुष योगियों एवं उसी क्रम में अपनी योगसाधना द्वारा ईश्वर व मंत्रों के साक्षात्कृतधर्मा महर्षियों, उनके ग्रन्थों एवं वेदरूप ईश्वरीय ग्रन्थों से हिंसा का संदेश देना मूर्खता व दुष्टता नहीं है, तो क्या है? जो विद्वान् वैदिक अहिंसा का स्वरूप देखना चाहे, वे पातंजल योगदर्शन के व्यासर्षि भाष्य को स्वयं पढ़ कर देखें।

  4. It’s because you challenged the set narrative, you should have challenged the evidence instead, which then, you would have been allowed to to write your opinion, yes, THE OPINION, not what you have read, because according to them, you don’t fit in the RIGHT CATEGORY or should I should I say, you are not POLITICALLY CORRECT according to them. RIGHT WING.

    I had so many collapsed answers on Quora no one would believe it, and it’s because, I always challenged the set narratives on it, join the club of collapsed answers. This was the very reason why I quit Quora. Lol 😆 🤣 😂

    1. It’s not my only collapsed reply… some 7 or 8 were taken down

      1. Very true… Quora is infamous for these activities. At least 3-4 of my answers to somebody in Quora, also taken down and official warnings were given to me for writing such way in future. A matter of fact, I did not abuse or use any vulgar words in my comments, but just because a set people opposed my comments, they took down mine. That is what Quora is!
