Summary of Question:Guru Granth Saheb Jee's View On Vegetarianism
Category:General Sikhism
Date Posted:Sunday, 3/21/1999 6:58 PM MDT

Could anyone tell me what is Shree Guru Granth Saheb Jee's view on Vegetarianism?

Personally, I am a vegetarian but I have met serval sikhs who say that it is OK to eat meat according to the Sikh Rehat Maryada by Akal Takhat. Is this true?
I guess it's up to us whether we choose to eat meat or not. But I would like to know whether SGGS Jee wants us to eat meat of not. If possible, please quote any passages from the bani.

Thankyou.

It is a 'kurehat' to eat 'halal meat', and Rehat Maryada published by SGPC says so. Some people feel that since the exclusion is 'halal', therefore, every other kind of meat is OK to eat.

The reference that comes to my mind almost every time that I see meat is on Page 1350 of GGS:

"Jo subh meh ek khudai kehat ho, tau kio murgee maarai".
