Vegetarianism and it effects in spirituality

Hi Members,
I would like to hear your opinions.
Do you think being vegetarian provides some benefits in one's spiritual life?
Thank you.

My take on this from personal exp.

''some benefits''? Yes, from years and years of being vegetarian for spiritual reasons..
Now, is it necessary to 'withstand' higher energy going through your body
and maintaining it in meditation?
Well, it sure does help!!!
(But many things help - like not eating foods that cause gas or indigestion...keeping a clean diet, period.)
Would it hurt to eat small amounts of org meats? I do not think so.
Could even benefit your health...thus, your spiritual life would have less distractions.

Yes, as long as your body can handle it. We are different and not everyone can do as well excluding an entire food group. Humans evolved as omnivores but vegetarians still get their animal food through dairy and eggs so it is generally okay.

I think vegetarianism is beneficial in a subtle way. I don't think it's nice that all those animals are fattened and put in trucks to be send to the slaughterhouse. Modern animal farming is very impersonal and literally like a death camp.

However it's also true that people were spiritual before civilization and before civilization we all depended on hunting, and in the wilds I see no moral argument against eating another animal.

It would be nice if vegetarian meals became more normal and the animal food around was all organic.

Thank you for your replies Miss Hepburn and Altair. :)

I'm a lacto-vegetarian most of the time. But I have a deep craving for desserts like cakes and pastries. So I still consume egg in the form of desserts.
