Vegetarianism in the Bible

By Denis Giron. 29 Mar 2013
Introduction
When I first began to study the bible, the people I studied with told me that it was wrong for me to be a vegetarian. I have found a common attack by Christians, and even Muslims on vegetarianism goes along the lines of "God said we could eat meat. Are you trying to say you are more merciful than God?" The answer to that question is "surely not", God should be the most merciful being. To help faith-based vegetarians, this article will discuss how vegetarianism relates to the bible, animals, and God. I will be quoting from the NIV translation of the bible, unless otherwise noted.
In The Beginning
According to the bible, the first people were vegetarians. Read all here

OPINION

Manav Dharma of Satpalji Maharaj will be better only IF they follow Krishna Consciousness also

By stipulating the spiritual wisdom given in the Vedic literature- the descending order as the perfect one to follow,  and commenting that the ascending order of the knowledge produced in this modern time by the people of high social esteem could be imperfect, is not my intention to offend any individuals. Its only to contest against the ascending order of philosophy on the strength of the wisdom that descended from the God- Krishna, namely the Bhagvad Gita- see its As It Is version. I fully appreciate the social work of the Manav dharma cult, as they raise people to the mode of goodness and avoid sinful activities. As well-wisher of them I attempt here to suggest that there is much more to do to attain the goal of life, to get into the paradise. And that is to go beyound the 'manav dharma' and cultivate Krishna consciousness. Being their's well-wisher if I do not point out to them what is best thing to do spiritually, then I would feel obstinate. I faithfully wish for their welfare in this life and beyound- to their souls. Read all here

A preacher of Manav Dharma of Sri Satpalji maharaj, Baiju Dharani - see in this video at Naamhat Boxtel.
Also you will see Viswaroop Das , a vaisnava from disciplic succession. The former stresses on meditating to see the light within as the goal of life and uses the Bhagavad Gita for this purpose only. The later, Vaisnava emphasizes to do bhakti or devotion as the goal of life as revealed in the same Bhagavad Gita. That fact should be what the Lord Krishna said ie. if a Yogi or dhyani meditator or even Gyani- who engages in the transcendental loving service- the Bhakti is highest of all. chapter 6 verse 47 see below.

Chapter 6. Knowledge of the Absolute

Value education through Bhagavad Gita As It Is started

Value education based on Bhagavad Gita As It Is begun.
His Holiness Bhakti Caru Swami donates 5000 Bhagavad Gita As It Is.
Naamhat of Boxtel, Netherlands donated 500 Euros. Hare Krishna Vaisnav tradition has been supporting value education at all levels. This education focusses on the right understanding of the wisdom passed down by the Lord Krishna, particularly the Bhagavad Gita. Many centuries has passed away already however, the true essence of this transcendental wisdom was rarely understood in its true sense, as Arjun understood it and applied. But now with the dawn of the world's most authentic presentation of the Bhagavad Gita As It Is version by Srila Prabhupada, imparting the value education based on this source of wisdom began. Currently, in an organised way under the project; Gita Champion League, His Holiness Bhakti Caru Swami Maharaj begun imparting this wisdom which focusses not only on distributing the book, Bhagavad Gita Asi It Is, but also encouraging to put in test…

Srila Prabhupada gave us everything

By: HH Bhakti Charu Swami Maharaj, Gitanagari
Hare Kåñëa It is always very enlivening to come to New Dvarika dham and be with you’ll. This temple has a very beautiful flavour which is very unique. Çréla Prabhupäda used to consider this temple to be the head quarters of ISKCON and in a way it is the head quarters of ISKCON. BBT used to be here, faith used to be here and all the wonderful devotees are already here. Prabhu is such a wonderful example and there are so many Prabhupada disciples here which are also very rare nowadays so it’s always very enlivening to be here. So today I have selected two verses from Çré Caitanya-caritämåta
This is from the Ädi-lélä third chapter. The few verses not just these two but few more verses from this chapter actually describes who Kåñëa is, what is the purpose of Kåñëa’s coming as Çré Caitanya Mahäprabhu and also through these verses we can see that Çréla Prabhupäda gave us everything. Sometimes some individuals claim that Prabhupada did not give e…

ISKCON Tempelproject in Den Haag, een stroomversnelling

Nieuwe Haagse tempel lijkt er nu toch te komen!Na een moeizame start komt er schot in het project voor een nieuwe tempel in Den Haag, direct achter Station Hollands Spoor in het Laakhavengebied. De ondertekening van de intentieovereenkomst met de gemeente Den Haag vond al plaats in 2012. Toch zag het er kort geleden nog vrij hopeloos uit voor het project. Inmiddels staan de zaken er heel anders voor!

De plannen zijn aangepast om de bouw betaalbaar maken. Zo komen in een deel van het gebouw kleine appartementen. En ook komt er een vestiging van MOSA, The Museum Of Sacred Art (dat ook te vinden is in Radhadesh en in Villa Vrindavana in Firenze, Italië). Een deel van de kosten à 1,6 miljoen euro is daarmee al gecoverd. De rest kan worden opgebracht door de verkoop van obligaties maar hopelijk vooral door toegewijden die willen doneren om dit prachtige project mogelijk te maken.

Het bestuur met onder anderen Shyamasundara prabhu en Bala Govinda prabhu staat er ook zeker niet alleen voor. He…
