  1. JUST BECAUSE A GURU SPEAKS ABOUT WHAT TO EAT DOES NOT MEAN THAT HE SPEAKS RIGHT !!
    I OFTEN CONFLICT WITH THIS MAN WHEN HE SPEAKS OF EATING MEAT AS A PERSONAL CHOICE RATHER THAN ACTING WISE AND TELLING PEOPLE TO BE FAIR AND BE VEGAN…..ANIMALS ARE NOT OURS TO EAT, WEAR OR EXPERIMENT ON !!! THEY WANT TO LIVE AND SO DO YOU, BUT WE CAN LIVE IN HARMONY AND IN GOOD HEALTH HARMING NO OTHER SENTIENT BEING !!!!

  2. When it comes eating meat, it is not a choice….Of course meat and dairy is legal but just because it is legal does not mean it is right because though one has the ability to eat what he or she wants to, you cannot morally justify killing an animal that does not want to die ! If you adopt a calf from a slaughter house or a piglet from a gas chamber you will understand that animals that we think are food sources are sentient beings that want to live the life they deserve !!!!
    "A PASSIONATE VEGAN SPEAKING HERE !"

  3. bull shit. you can not digest fiber. Our body can digest meat.
    Also body keeps the meat in the body longer to take as much nutrition as possible, but plant fiber is useless so it is kicked out of body as fast as possible. This guy does not know nothing about digestive system.

  4. Sadhguru brings an interesting point from a biological perspective but fails to tackle the ethical principle of veganism. In other words, veganism isn't a diet but a moral philosophy. In this video's context, "plant-based diet" is the proper term.

  5. Very self-righteous attitude to merely "eat what is best for you". Perhaps consider that there are victims of your food choices and that you can choose to eat something else instead. It's not rocket science.

  6. I m also surprised he is not talking about the energy we comsume when eating meat. That animal has went through hell, specially in its last minutes, for us to eat it. Its full of stress hormons that its body produced before the final death cut. How one does Yoga and find inner calm with such a vilolence going through the body. Mission impossible – also for fish. In their last moment they painfully struggeled for air. It cant scream so we dont recognise and also its face is not familiar to ours to recognise their pain. But its there and we consume their fear of death and painful struggeling to breath fully with every bite we take.

  7. What a bad title! Doesnt represent what Sadu says at all! He has also said in another video that if the animal is able to feel emotions and express then its flesh is not meant for us to eat cs that would be like canibalism. In that context he mentioned that people who drink cowsmilk see the cow as something like a mother and wouldnt kill her to eat her meat.
    All that said it has very much to do with veganism – although not with vegetarians. Veganism is not a diet but a form of awareness of the explonation of animals in our food industdy. And the decission to not chose it simply cause its possible.

  8. **Please read this to stop suffering of animals**
    Sadhguru and people watching this video should watch "Earthlings" to get to know more About cruelty in eating dairy, fish, meat products and using leather.

    Hindu Religion Quotes that disapprove, even denounce, meat-eating

    Rig Veda:
    The cow gives milk each year, O Man-regarder: let not the Yātudhāna ever taste it.
    If one would glut him with the biesting, Agni, pierce with thy flame his vitals as he meets thee.
    18 Let the fiends drink the poison of the cattle; may Aditi cast off the evildoers.
    May the God Savitar give them up to ruin, and be their share of plants and herbs denied them. (HYMN LXXXVII. Agni.)

    “One who partakes of human flesh, the flesh of a horse or of another animal, and deprives others of milk by slaughtering cows, O King, if such a fiend does not desist by other means, then you should not hesitate to cut off his head.”

    Rig-veda (10.87.16)

    Manu-Samhita:

    “Meat can never be obtained without injury to living creatures, and injury to sentient beings is detrimental to the attainment of heavenly bliss; let him therefore shun the use of meat. Having well considered the disgusting origin of flesh and the cruelty of fettering and slaying corporeal beings, let him entirely abstain from eating flesh.”

    (Manu-samhita 5.48-49) “He who permits the slaughter of an animal, he who cuts it up, he who kills it, he who buys or sells meat, he who cooks it, he who serves it up, and he who eats it, must all be considered as the slayers of the animal. There is no greater sinner than that man who though not worshiping the gods or the ancestors, seeks to increase the bulk of his own flesh by the flesh of other beings.” (Manu-samhita 5.51-52)

    “He who injures harmless creatures from a wish to give himself pleasure, never finds happiness in this life or the next.” (Manu-samhita 5.45)

    “By not killing any living being, one becomes fit for salvation.” (Manu-samhita 6.60)

    Mahabharata:

    “He who desires to augment his own flesh by eating the flesh of other creatures, lives in misery in whatever species he may take his [next] birth.” (Mahabharata, Anu.115.47)

    “The purchaser of flesh performs violence by his wealth; he who eats flesh does so by enjoying its taste; the killer does violence by actually tying and killing the animal. Thus, there are three forms of killing. He who brings flesh or sends for it, he who cuts off the limbs of an animal, and he who purchases, sells, or cooks flesh and eats it–all these are to be considered meat-eaters.” (Mahabharata, Anu.115.40)

    “The sins generated by violence curtail the life of the perpetrator. Therefore, even those who are anxious for their own welfare should abstain from meat-eating.” (Mahabharata, Anu.115.33)

    Bhishma started, “Numberless discourses took place between the Rishis on this subject, O scion of Kuru’s race. Listen, O Yudhisthira, what their opinion was. (Mahabharata, Anu.115.7)

    “The highly wise seven celestial Rishis, the Valakshillyas, and those Rishis who drink the rays of the sun, all speak highly of abstention from meat.

    The self-created Manu has said that the man who does not eat meat, or who does not kill living creatures, or who does not cause them to be killed, is a friend of all creatures. Such a man is incapable of being oppressed by any creature. He enjoys the confidence of all living beings. He always enjoys the praise of the pious. The virtuous Narada has said that that man who wishes to multiply his own flesh by eating the flesh of other creatures meets with disaster. (Mahabharata, Anu.115.9-12)

    “Flesh cannot be had from grass or wood or stone. Unless a living creature is killed it cannot be procured. Hence is the fault of eating flesh. The celestials who live upon Svaha, Svadha, and nectar, are given to truth and sincerity. Those persons, however, who are for satisfying the sensation of taste, should be known as Rakshasas [flesh-eating demons] pervaded by the quality of Darkness. (Mahabharata, Anu.115.24-25)

    “He who purchases flesh, kills living creatures through his money. He who eats flesh, kills living beings through his eating. He who binds or seizes and actually kills living creatures is the slaughterer. These are the three sorts of slaughter through each of these acts. He who does not himself eat flesh but approves of an act of slaughter, becomes stained with the sin of slaughter. (Mahabharata, Anu.115.38-39)

    “Listen to me, O king of kings, as I tell you this, O sinless one, there is absolute happiness in abstaining from meat, O king. He who practices severe austerities for a century, and he who abstains from meat, are both equally meritorious. This is my opinion. (Mahabharata, Anu.115.52-53)

    “Gifts made in all sacrifices [rituals], ablutions performed in all sacred water, and the merit which one acquires from making all kinds of gifts mentioned in the scriptures, all these do not equal in merit abstention from cruelty.” (Mahabharata, Anu.116.40)

    Bhagavata Purana:

    “Those who are ignorant of real dharma and, though wicked and haughty, account themselves virtuous, kill animals without any feeling of remorse or fear of punishment. Further, in their next lives, such sinful persons will be eaten by the same creatures they have killed in this world.” (Bhagavata Purana 11.5.14)

    Buddhishm:

    "All meats eaten by living beings are of their own relatives" 

    Lankavatara Sutra Tripitaka No 671

    Christianity:

    If you had known what that text means, 'I require mercy, not sacrifice' you would not have condemmed the innocent' Matthew 12:7

    ISLAM:

    Do not allow your stomachs to become grayeyards of animals

  9. Becoming docile as a result of vegan diet has nothing to do with breaking down the genetic code but it's a simple result of losing your testosterone and other hormones since most of them are made from cholesterol and animal foods. Being always in peace is different than being defenceless and weak. Lion are mostly peaceful when they are fed but they have the balls to fight whenever they want. Vegans are simply too weak not so peaceful.

  10. Thats 200% true. WHY WE NEED SOMEONE'S BROTHER/SISTER/FRIEND/FATHER/MOTHER ON OUR DINNER PLATE.

    DO NOT SEE ONLY CONVENIENCE (HABIT/FATHER ATE/SOCIETY EATING/ETC REASONS) VIEW POINT. PLEASE SEE COMPASSIONATE VIEW POINT AS HUMAN MEANS "COMPAASIONATE".

    WE IN INDIA LIVED FOR SO MANY GENERATIONS WITHOUT EATING NON-VEG. NO HEALTH ISSUES OR NO STRENGTH ISSUES OR NO MALE-NESS ISSUES OR NO WEAKNESS OR NO STOMACK ISSUES. INSTEAD WE BECAME MORE HEALTHY AND MORE INTELLIGENT BY EATING ONLY VEGETARIAN FOOD. WE SURVIVED FOR MANY GENERATIONS SO ANY HUMAN CAN SURVIVE. STRENGTH COMES FROM PROPER EXERCISING MUSCLES AND NOT BY EATING FLESH.

    THEY HAVE A FAMILY TOO. ANIMALS TOO SUFFER WHEN THEY SEE A SIBLING OF THEM GOT KILLED BY THE MOST INTELLIGENT ANIMAL (HUMAN).

    THEY HAVE FEELINGS TOO. WHEN A COW SUFFERS IT SHED TEARS…..WHEN A DOG FRIETENS IT TAKES SHELTER IN ITS MASTER LEGS……WHEN A BIRD FEARS IT TRY TO FLY AWAY AND AWAY……..SO THEY TOO HAVE FEELINGS…….

    PLEASE DO NOT KILL ANIMALS EXCEPT IN DEFENSE WHERE ANY CRUEL ANIMAL SERIOUSLY ATTACKS.

    WHY TO KILL SOMEONE'S HAPPY FAMILY AND THEIR HAPPY FEELING???

    DO WE NEED TO KILL SOMEONE'S HAPPINESS IN SEARCH OF OUR HAPPINESS (I REALLY FEEL BAD WHEN ANIMAL'S CHILDREN WERE SERVED IN DINNER OF A HUMAN CHILD'S BIRTHDAY PARTY)

    WE CELEBRATE BIRTHDAYS FOR CHILDREN AS WE CELEBRATE THEIR COMING INTO THIS WORLD. BUT WHY WE NEED TO SERVE NON-VEG (ANIMAL IS ALSO SOMEONE'S LOVING CHILD/SISTER/BROTHER/FRIEND/FATHER/MOTHER) IN SUCH PARTY. HOW ONE CAN CELEBRATE HIS CHILD' S BIRTHDAY BY KILLING SOMEONE ELSE'S SON/DAUGHTER. HOW IN-SENSITIVE WE BECAME IN THIS WORLD????

    HOW GOD GETS PLEASED WHEN WE KILL HIS/HER LOVING CREATION (ANIMALS ALSO CREATED BY GOD AS LOVING LIVING CHILDREN). DOG SHOWS LOVE WHEN MASTER COMES BACK HOME. THEY TOO HAVE FEELINGS.

    KINDLY WATCH A HEN FLIES TO 50 FEET ABOVE GROUND TO SAVE HER CHILD FROM EAGLE. IT TOO HAS FEELINGS TO SAVE HER CHILDREN. WATCH IT IN ACTION AND REALIZE WHY WE NEED TO KILL THAT BEAUTIFUL LOVE FEELING OF A MOTHER HEN, BY KILLING HER CHILD IN FRONT OF HER ???? HOW BAD&SAD SHE MIGHT BE FEELING ?????

  11. लोग कहते है कि, "मांस खाने से प्रोटिन मिलता है| " जब कि हाथी, गेंडा, जिराफ, गाय, भैंस, घोडा, बकरी आदी प्राणी शाकाहारी होते है, तो क्या उन्हे प्रोटिन नहीं मिलता? क्या वो कमजोर होते है? क्या उनमे ताकद नहीं होती? और सबसे महत्त्वपूर्ण हिंदू धर्म के विविध ग्रंथो मे उदा. ' मनुस्मृती' मे मांस खाने वाले लोगों को पापी कहा है यह ध्यान मे रखे| कुदरतने हमारा शरीर पेड के पत्ते, फल, फुल खाने के लिए बनाया है, मांस खाने के लिए नहीं| कुदरतने मनुष्य को शाकाहारी बनाया| मनुष्य तो पत्ते, फल, फुल खाने वाले वानर से जन्मी हुई जात है| मनुष्य की पाचन क्षमता शाकाहारी प्राणियों जैंसी है, उसके साथ हि मनुष्य को आहार मे रेषोवाले (तंतूमय) पदार्थो की जरुरत होती है और वह सिर्फ शाकाहारी भोजन से ही प्राप्त हो सकती है| हमे मांसाहारी बनाया होता तो हमारी आंते हमारे शरीर के तीन गुणा लंबी होती, जब की वे तीन गुणा न होके शाकाहारी प्राणियों जैसी सात गुणा लंबी होती है| हमारे नाखून मांसाहारी प्राणियों के नाखून की तरह नुकीले न होके, वे शाकाहारी प्राणियों की तरह चपटे होते है| लोग कहते है कि, मनुष्य के कुछ दांत मांसाहारी प्राणियों जैसे होते है", लेकिन हाथी, पाणी मे रहने वाला बडासा हिप्पो, ऊंट, वानर, सुळेदार हिरण इन शाकाहारी प्राणियों के भी कुछ दांत नुकीले होते है, तो क्या यह प्राणी मांसाहारी है? जब की वे प्राणी पुरी तरह से शाकाहारी है| हमारी बनावट भी वैसी ही है| कुदरत ने हमको शाकाहारी बनाया, इसलिए मांस, मछली, अंडा खा कर कुदरत का मजाक और अपमान मत करो| मांसाहार मत करो इसका दुसरा उदाहरण – हिंदुओ के देव हो, जैन के भगवान हो, सिख के गुरु हो, इस्लाम के पैगंबर सुफी संत हो, या ख्रिस्ती धर्म के जिजस इन सब ने अहिंसा का सबक दिया है| शिर्डी के महान संत जिनकी संपुर्ण जगत मे ख्याती है वे साईबाबा, बौद्ध धर्म के संस्थापक गौतम बुद्ध, जैन धर्म के संस्थापक भगवान महावीर, सिख धर्म के संस्थापक पहिले गुरु गुरुनानक, संत कबीर, इस्लाम के धर्मगुरू तथा अनेक सूफी संत जैसे इमाम साहाब, हजरत अली, हजरत शारुव्रुद्दीन, हजरत निजामुद्दीन औलिया, मीर दाद, अबुल अरा इत्यादी, महानुभव पंथ के श्री चक्रधरस्वामी, ईसाई धर्म के संस्थापक ईसा मसीह के गुरु दि-बेपटिस्ट, हिंदू महापुरुष स्वामी दयानंद सरस्वती, संत श्री गाडगेबाबा, वाराणसी के श्री तेलंग स्वामी, अक्कलकोट के श्री स्वामी समर्थ, शेगांव के श्री गजानन महाराज, धनगर समाज के जिन्होंने जीवनभर भेंड-बकरियों की सेवा की थी वे बाळूमामा, मराठाओं के छत्रपती श्री शिवाजी महाराज और महाराज ने जिन्हें अपना गुरु माना था वे संत तुकाराम, समर्थ रामदास स्वामी ये सब शाकाहारी थे, राजपूत राजा धुरंधर योद्धा महाराणा प्रताप, धर्मवीर छत्रपती संभाजी महाराज, राजा पोरस, शुरवीर सम्राट अशोक और राष्ट्रपिता महात्मा गांधी, लोहपुरुष सरदार वल्लभभाई पटेल, मंगल पांडे इनके जैसे सैंकडो महान लोग भी शाकाहारी थे| ये सभी अहिंसावादी थे| उन्हे प्राणियों के प्रती आपनापण, माया, प्रेम, करुणा, स्नेह और वात्सल्य था| इनमे से प्रत्येक व्यक्ती भुतदया करनेवाला एक श्रेष्ठ संत था| इनमे से बहोत से संत खूद भूखा रहके प्राणियों को खाना देते थे| इससे कुछ बोध और सबक ले| अगर इन बुद्धिमान संत, महात्माओ से तुम खुद को होशियार समजतें हो, उन्हें मुर्ख समजते हो तो करो मांसाहार|
