Duel: Can Sikhs eat Meat?

Updated on November 12, 2015

Meat or no Meat? Yummy or disgusting?

My question is: To eat meat or not to eat meat? Can a Sikh eat meat or not?

The opinion is divided... There are vegan Sikhs, vegetarian Sikhs and meat eating Sikhs? What does the Guru Granth Sahib (holy Sikh book) say? Or is it the rule created by people? I know that some of the Gurus were eating meat and there were times when meat was served in Langar halls?

Poll: Are you a meat eater? - Are you a meat eater? Vegetarian? Vegan?

sikhs eat meat, meat, sikhs, squidoo, veg, vegan, vegetarian, veg vs meat
sikhs eat meat, meat, sikhs, squidoo, veg, vegan, vegetarian, veg vs meat

Are you a meat eater?

See results

Can you eat meat if you are a Sikh? Why is it forbidden? Why some people are still under the impression that they can eat meat? Are there any mentions of this topic in the Guru Granth Sahib?

      LESSONS FROM GOD - The Dog & his Akashic records!


      The beautiful morning dawn was peeping thru the clouds,

      sun rays were mischievously darting here and there,

      shining on Birds chirping "Every breath love God"

      Then the neighbors dog started his unceasing daily barking.

      Barking every day for hours and hours).


      I went into meditation (super consciousness) and asked God for help for this Dog.

      I was suddenly standing in the garden with the Dog

      He looked at me and I looked at him!


      "Why are you barking continuously" I asked.

      "Look at the walls around me, I want to be free, I want freedom, I want to play in the fields,

      why am I stuck here in this compound, WHY, please free me" said the dog.

      I asked Babaji my master & guide for help, "Please, Baba, I am at a loss how do I help

      this Dog?".

      Baba spoke, "Amarjit, ask for the Dog's book of Life (His Akashic Records) to be opened)".

      "Book of life, are you feeling okay? Baba, what are you saying - only Humans have a book of life"

      "Amarjit, all particles of creation have a book of life.


      into this Divine computer /book is recorded every experience the soul undergoes!

      I asked for the book of life to be opened.


      In the Book I was shown a passage where the Dog had agreed to serve

      this master in this life time!


      "Read this you have your self agreed to serve this master this life time, you must reconsider

      and be happy with him, treat your work as a worship to God, this will help you ascend in your next life time, from the animal kingdom unto the Human kingdom" I told the Dog.


      The Dog agreed, asked forgiveness for his actions and has stopped his furious barking and now contemplates on God's name with Baba's blessings.

      Click here: Akashic records - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


      Click here: YouTube - The Book of Life: The Akashic Records


      The Holy Bible : Acts 17:24-25 God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made with hands; 25 Neither is worshiped with men's hands, as though he needed anything, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;

      Every creature, even ants, flies and mosquitoes, possesses an immortal soul, according to all the teaching of the saints.


      To the western people, this is an entirely new idea.

      The eastern people accept this.

      Even vegetables and food grains have souls.


      ''Each particle of grain

      Same spirit doth contain.

      Each leaf thou pluckest, O gardener's dame.

      Hath selfsame soul in God's own name''
