If We Can Eat Vegetables, Why Can’t We Eat Non-veg Food? (With English Subtitles)


Sapana asks, I always get stuck while talking about non-vegetarian food amongst my friends. They say while chopping vegetables or fruits, they have life too, I don’t feel bad about that So, why do I feel bad when someone chops the meat for eating? All the fruits, vegetables and crops are living entity, that is true. But Vegetables or fruits do not have the sense of being alive, their consciousness is dormant. But in animals and birds the consciousness is awakened. When the conscious is awakened, they get the ability to think, understand and feel. So when you cut an apple, it doesn’t sense being cut or even sense that it had been plucked from the tree before. But if someone is to chop off the head of a chicken, it will definitely feel the pain of being killed as it wishes to live. Have you ever seen on the road vehicle which carries the chickens, it has chicken wire net all around and it can be seen that all the chickens keep hanging their head from the net. Even they sense something is about to happen that they will be killed The fear and pain somehow gets expressed on their faces. But if you were to chop or cook fruits and vegetables, you will not see any sensation in them. What’s more important is to know that, the animals and birds are much more evolved as compared to fruits and vegetables. That is why… Bengalis, call fish as ‘Jaltori’ in their vernacular language. ‘Jaltori’ ,‘Tori’ or ridge gourd is a kind of vegetable. So they have this impression that fish are the ‘Toris’ (ridge gourd) or vegetable of water. Hence there is no difference in cutting a ‘Tori’ or ridge gourd or eating a fish. It’s matter of thought process and how we deal with it But if you are considerate about fish, they too have the power to think and understand. There are some species of fish like dolphins, sharks, whales a lot of research has been done by the west researchers. They found that their IQ level especially in dolphins are alike human beings, very much similar to humans. In many incidents it is observed that when people are drowning by the seashore dolphins safely take them out to the shore. There are several tales about them. So, the realization in animals and birds are not the same like fruits and vegetables. Therefore, it is very inhumane to kill them when we know that they are living and are scared of death. To kill that living thing is inhumane So So one must be careful and about the other matters like debate or arguements there’s no limit to it, one can give hundreds of reasons for eating and hundreds reasons for not. But whether to be a vegetarian or a non- vegetarian is not debatable. You know there can be hundreds arguments for and against for any subject. The best thing is that you feel what you feel, you know that, if you have sensibility and aesthetics and if you can observe the life around you then it isn’t that difficult to become a vegetarian and not to kill, kill any bird or animal. When you pluck a fruit from a tree, you are not killing something because tree is still growing. Tree is still growing, tree would be still giving next year harvest would be there and every year the trees would be giving new flowers and new fruits. But if you cut a fish that’s it, story the end nothing is going to grow out of that dead fish body nothing is going to grow out of the dead chicken’s body but if you cut a vegetable from its plant, then still life is there in that plant, so the plant is going to given again another crop and an another crop until that plant dies. The plants and the fruits do not have the sense that we are existing or we are alive but but an animal, a bird has this feeling. Someone one’s asked me Gurumaa what will you eat I was his guest so they asked me this question what will you eat. I said I can eat anything but which doesn’t move, fly or walk. Anything which flies, walks, moves. I don’t eat those things. So I could have simply said that cook anything vegetarian, but I gave this terminology anything which moves, a plant never moves, a plant remain rooted to the ground, anything which flies, i don’t eat that, the birds all birds fly, all insects fly. So anything which moves, anything which flies, anything which walks, no tree walks, tree remains stagnant at one place, grounded at one place, but animals walk from one place to another. So I don’t eat anything which walks, moves, swim and flies. Rest you can cook whatever you want.

  2. In short words animals and human have brain nerves to feel pain but plants don't have brain and nervous system

  3. Who think meat is good… what about eating humans… it should be fine then…
    Life is in plants… but thing is do very less harm… harm will be done if we take any step or anybody on this earth… so do less harm…

  4. We can survive by eating veg so killing to eat is sinful for us,but animals who survive on meat can kill without committing sin.

  5. Very nice explanation given by guru ma… Im bengoli since childhood im vegetarion but born n married in a non vegetarian family. Yesterday was sunday and Sunday means chicken party so my family members gave me the same explanation that plants r also living things but i couldn't satisfied them by my ans. Today i searched few videos but found your videos very logical n satisfactory.

  6. It's been scientifically proven that plants respond to music which indicates "Chetna".. I think it should rest upon an individual what to eat or not to… What's good for my digestive system might not be good for another. Simple.

  7. Mai bhi vegetarian hu aur vegeterianism ko support karta hu par Apke dwara diya gaya tark sahi nahi lagta

  8. Plants have no brain therefore they don't feel pain where else animals feel pain …animals r friends not food .

  9. Man is not at the top of food chain. To maintain the cycle of nature each living being produces food for other living things.
    Humans produce manure daily which is food for plants. Humans benefit from plants and plants can benefit from humans. Animals and humans are not directly related in this natures cycle. That is why, human body cannot digest raw meat like carnivores but we can eat grounded grains.
    Only human is intelligent to mess with the chain.

  10. Animals hamjaise hi hai vo human jaisehi birth dethehai….khoon aatha hai feelings bolthe hai akhose paani athe hai…mother animals ka protection dekho….aap plant ko khud bada sakthe ho kahi bhi…ek branch nikaletho fir athe hai…plz dnt compare plants and animals…..love animals…

  11. Good answer by lady..
    Fruits & vegetables r OUTGROWTH of trees..thy r pure as thy take energy from sun..unlike animals..thus non veg is bad..its unpure..

  12. It's a nature cycle someone have to kill someone weather it has less sense of pain or more snake has to kill frog to survive cow has to kill plants to survive and more of over plants have less sense means they are handicapped than animals.. That means they shd get more punishment who kills handicapped..

  15. सेब को काटोगे तो वो चिल्लायेगा क्या नही ना ।

  16. Egg can't fly,move or walk…..but apart everything you've successfully convinced me to become a vegetarian. Thank you guruma🙏

  17. Well explained I also think we should not eat non veg. But we kill bacteria /microbes Knowingly or unknowingly (bath/hadwash/antibiotics/antivirals). I can understand that these are Harmful. But again in some situations they are not harmful e. G.
    If we take antibiotic it will kill essential as well as non essential organism.

  18. Simple Vegetables and Animals both created by Lord Shiva, and given law too Vegetables for feeding Humans, and other rule maden by Human, they can kill Animals and their Flesh they can feed to Human.

  19. सभी लोगों के अपने अपने तर्क हैं वनस्पतियों में भी
    जान होती है मांसाहार की तरह शाकाहार को भी
    जीवहत्या से जोड़कर देखा जाता है। ठीक।
    पेड़ के फल फूल छाल आदि का उपयोग किया जाए तो
    वह गलत नहीं है मगर जड़ सहित पेड़ को उखाड़
    दिया जाए तो वह पशुवध की श्रेणी में आता है।
    अतः निष्कर्ष यह है कि पेड़ पौधों के फल व जानवरों
    के दूध तक ही हम सीमित रहें पेड़ों की जड़ों व जानवरों
    के रक्त मांस पर अपना अधिकार न जताएँ ।

  20. #(1. Even plants can feel pain) #
    They further argue that plants cannot feel pain, therefore killing a plant is a lesser crime as compared to killing an animal. Today science tells us that even plants can feel pain. But the cry of the plant cannot be heard by the human being. This is due to the inability of the human ear to hear sounds that are not in the audible range i.e. 20 Hertz to 20,000 Hertz. Anything below and above this range cannot be heard by a human being. A dog can hear up to 40,00 Hertz. Thus there are silent dog whistles that have a frequency of more than
    20,000 Hertz and less than 40,000 Hertz. These whistles are only heard by dogs and not by human beings. The dog recognizes the masters whistle and comes to the master. There was research done by a farmer in U.S.A. who invented an instrument which converted the cry of the plant so that it could be heard by human beings. He was able to realize immediately when the plant itself cried for water. Latest researches show that the plants can even feel happy and sad. It can also cry.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    #(2. Killing a living creature with two senses less is not a lesser crime)#
    Once a vegetarian argued his case by saying that plants only have two or three senses while the animals have five senses. Therefore killing a plant is a lesser crime than killing an animal. Suppose your brother is born deaf and dumb and has two senses less as compared to other human beings. He becomes mature and someone murders him. Would you ask the judge to give the murderer a lesser punishment because your brother has two senses less? In fact you would say that he has killed a masoom, an innocent person, and the judge should give the murderer a greater punishment.

  21. milk is considered as pure veg, but vegetables are not pure veg, for further details search in google deeply….
    1. milk (no offspring, no life)
    2. vegetables(life)
    3. eggs(menstrual egg)
    4. fish(amphibian)
    5 white meat(reptile)
    6 red meat(mammal)
    that's y in india cow is worshipped by hindus 🙏
    we humans are mammals, we should not partake the same kingdom, it's like a taboo; it's like marrying their own brothers and sisters leads to genetic diseases…. plant kingdom is far beyond to mammalian so it's best for our digestion….

  22. 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 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|
    "मानवीय आहार शाकाहार"!

  23. Best explanation of being a vegetarian the best explanation is plant doesnt stop growing after plucking an apple.

  24. Agar plant se apple na tohdo toh wo khud ba khud gir jata that shows nature want us to eat it. But in case of animals there is no such thing happen .

  25. vegetable & fruits have A 1 one tatt . births have 3 tatt. animals have 4 tatt. snake & other have 2 tatt. man & woman have 5 tatt. if we eat 1 tatt .we get less Karma. we pay less Karma if we eat 3 or 4 tatt. we get more karma. we pay more karma. it's VERY simple. or one hand take. & other hand give back. it's the la. no body can Run away.

  26. But , now science has developed and we came to know that even plants can feel pain. They can cry and they can even feel happy. They can laugh. Its a fact . but human ear can not hear the cry of the plant because we can hear any sounds in between 20cycle/sec to 2000cycle/sec. That doesn't give us permission to kill and eat them….

  27. We live in a country where the climatic conditions and resources are favourable. So we don't need to kill animals for food.

  28. There are so many plants which reacts when u try to cut that plant then how can u dfferentiat in animals and plants

  29. If a living thing can't speak or express, is it a license to kill them like plants, I would like to enlightened.

  30. And in reality the fruit is meant to be eaten, The plants has evolved in such a way that they produce fruits which the animals can eat and excrete the waste with the seeds still intact and from which the plant can grow. So the fruits are actually meant to be eaten……..

  31. करुणा भी एक सद्गुण है । स्त्री में करुणा ज्यादा है।इसीलिए मा है । करुणा हीनता कोई सद्गुण नही है ।

  32. Madam apki bate sunke dil drd bhra ho gya.fir b dosto non veg khana hai to kaho lekin us janwr ko aap kha rhe hi pehle ye dekho ki use treat kese kra gya kya uska respect lra gya hai ya ni.are itna to kr skte hi tm log km se km

  33. Science ne sidh kiya ki ped poidho ko v dard hota hai or o cry rote v hai par insan iske awaj sun Nahi sakte

  34. I'M A HINDU 🙏🌹 🙏
    In The Bible Genesis 1 29
    God Said The Fruits And The Vegetation Are The Meat You 👈 Shall Eat!
    Blessed Are The Vegetarian, For They Shall Eat With God! 🕉️🚩
    🇮🇳🇬🇾🇹🇹🇸🇷🇯🇲💪😎

  35. Biggest sin is eating non veg, hindu Muslim Christian no God will save you, kill animals and desire for heaven how is this possible?
    Stop cruelty on animals for selfishness.
    Plants don't feel the pain( they are not in conscious state)in the same way when you cut your nails,hair.But animals are in conscious state so they feel the pain.Be veg live long.
