Why Vegetarian???

It was a couple of years ago, perhaps when I was in the seventh or eight that I got the insight into myself that killing animals for the sake of the tongue's pleasure is a serious offence and it was then that I left non-vegetarian and shunned away those who consumed it. However, I hadn't left eggs just as yet.

Maybe I was in my ninth class when papa introduced me to Guruji and for the sake of the Guru mantra I don't know what caused me to leave eggs, forever. I became an even more strict vegetarian, stopped consuming even gelatin. It was my love for God who I viewed as my Guruji that caused me to do it.

The years that followed were and still are very difficult times for me. There was a time when my faith in Guruji completely broke and it was then I thought that working for the welfare of this world is futile when God doesn't give a damn about me, nor does anybody else. So I restarted non-vegetarianism again and ate meat in full swing. I really enjoyed the food, but...

A couple of months back when I revisited him and when some things happened. Some of the faith within me, although with a shadow of doubt revived and I don't want to take a chance of his words not coming true because of eating non-vegetarianism. So I left it again, completely.

To be very honest, one should be vegetarian especially if one is good at heart. However being non-vegetarian doesn't guarantee hell and nor does it guarantee heaven for that matter I feel. You need to try to be as good as you can, and your food is a very small part of this process.

THIS IS NOT A VEG OR NON VEG FIGHT OR DEBATE. IT IS THE STORY OF MY LIFE...
