TopicThe Vegetarian Diet Complements a Spiritual Lifestyle
The principles of spirituality have remained the same throughout the ages. OxyFuel Modern science is only now coming to the conclusions that the saints and mystics have realized from time immemorial. In the realm of nutrition too, modern research is confirming the supremacy of the diet followed by those leading a spiritual life - the vegetarian diet. In all respects - spiritual, moral, and physical - the vegetarian diet is the most suitable for man. And for those who wish to follow the path leading to self-knowledge and God-realization, a strict vegetarian diet is essential.
If we examine various religious and mystic traditions, we find that they recommend or require vegetarianism. Such a diet is associated with the earliest religious traditions. Thus, Pythagoras and his followers were strict vegetarians. The Greek sage taught: "My friends, do not defile your bodies by partaking of impure foods. We have enough of grains and trees which are loaded with fruits. We have delicious vegetables and roots which can be readily cooked. And there is no dearth of milk and honey. Our earth has abundance of such pure and harmless foods and there is no need for us to partake of meals for which blood has to be shed and innocent life sacrificed."
