Acharya Prashant on Veganism: Various religions, and their view of animals

Having an intellect, does it really make man superior to animals?

Yes, of course the dog cannot read.

Yes, the dog cannot comprehend our books and our knowledge.

But if all reading and all knowledge is for the sake of peace, is for the sake of a great silence, then please tell me whether man’s intellect or knowledge are indeed able to deliver the goods?

Knowledge is limited, intellect is limited.

Knowledge always consists of objects and every object has a boundary. If the purpose of life and, if the purpose of religion is to be one with God, then the purpose of religion is to drop all that which is limited because God is unlimited.

As long as you identify with that which is limited, there is no question of unity with God.

Intellect is limited, and intellect prevents man from closeness with God.

You cannot intellectualize your way to silence.

I want to now ask what is closer to goodness and Godliness?

Man’s intellect or the simple innocence of animals?

Acharya Prashant on Veganism: Vedas and Milk

Hindu is bound to have a very-very harmonious relationship with existence. If at all he has understood what Hinduism is. And if at all he takes the Vedic literature as the foundation of Hinduism. The Hindu is bound to see nothing but Godliness. A Hindu is someone who is total and therefore sees nothing but the total. For a Hindu, this dead tree is not just a dead tree. Because he looks from a center, a point of totality, this dead tree too represents nothing less than the totality to him. He cannot be disrespectful towards it.

And that is why you see Hindus worshipping just about everything.

Now, how can then a Hindu go about with a butcher’s knife in his hand?

Individuality is neither acquired nor influenced

The ringing of the temple bell is a delight for the Hindu and means nothing to the Muslim. The call of the Azaan is deeply significant to the Muslim but is disturbance to the Hindu. Now, are you experiencing the ringing of the bell and sound of the Azaan? Are ‘you’ experiencing it? Or is it the Hindu that is experiencing it?

Were you born a Hindu? Hinduism is something that was given to you. It is part of your conditioning. You have acquired it, you have absorbed it. Same for the Muslim. He has acquired it. Taken it in.
