Vegetarianism is being initiated by the Sages in China and India since time immemorial to prohibit the infliction of cruelties upon fellow animate beings. It is the very basic in the cultivation of compassion and love among all sentient beings. Today, with adequate evidential materials which involve men from all walks of life and traditions, vegetarianism constantly acknowledged all over the world by young and old, as essential diet to promote not only health consciousness but also moralities as the principality of life as well. A goal towards Universal Love and Peace and it is also said to be the provider of good health for the soul.
Nevertheless, let us ask ourselves these questions:
1] Is man by nature, a vegetarian or a meat-eater?
2] Do animals suffer from as much fear and pain as man when they are led to slaughter?
3] Is it possible for a man to give up lifetime habits of meat-eating?
4] Can meat-eating affect man’s spirit? 
 
Many scientists have come to a conclusion that man is by nature to live not on meat but on a vegetable diet. Man’s structure, external and internal, compared with that of the other animals, shows that fruit and succulent vegetables constitute his natural food. On top of all the contrasts, fruit and herbivorous animals are docile in nature but that of meat-eating animals are fierce and wild.
 
World Health statistics reveals that those who consume a great deal of flesh food and high animal protein diets live up to an average of 30 to 40 years and the people within this group are the Eskimos, the Kinghiz (a nomadic Eastern Russian tribe), the Greenlanders and the Laplanders. On the contrary, scientists discover that the Hunzas, a tribe in north India and Pakistan; are well-known for their non-adaptation of disease and long life, often reaching to the age of 115 or more. Their diets are mainly of whole grains, fresh fruits, vegetables and goat’s milk. A British general and doctor Sir Rob McGarrison who worked with the Hunzas wrote: “I never saw a case of appendicitis, cocitis or cancer.”    
 
Significantly, nations which intake the most animal products inevitably suffer an alarming occurrence of diseases. The major of which are heart and cancer invasions. The Finns, who consumed the most, had an average blood cholesterol level of 265; had the highest death rate from heart disease. Second-in-line were the Americans who eat about 125 pounds of fat per person per year (about 156 grams per day) and according to Health Report, more than 40 million Americans suffer from heart and blood vessel diseases. Heart disease which relatively rare 50 years ago, is today America’s No 1 cause of death, taking 600,000 lives each year. It has become the modern day disease of industrialized societies. In Japan, where the percentage of fat-diet is lesser, heart-disease rate is lower than in any other industrialized nation.
 
 
Scientifically, why is meat so harmful to the body?

Below is the Chinese word of meat (Roh) meaning Human eats Human in the teaching of Tao of Heaven. Coincidentally the word MEAT can be separated as      ME EAT ME.

Fats of animal flesh such as cholesterol do not dissolve easily in the human body. Instead they deposit themselves unceasingly upon the walls of the meat-eater’s blood vessels. As time goes by, the vessels become thicker and narrower, permitting lesser blood to flow through. This hazardous condition is known as Atherosclerosis or Hardening of the Arteries. This affects the function of the heart that is forced to increase its pumping capacity in order to send blood through clogged and contracted vessels. As a result, high blood pressure, strokes and heart attack prevail.
 
On the other hand, during the agony of being slaughtered, the terrified animals undergo profound changes. First of all, secretion of toxins generated by rage and fear at the time of slaughter, are forced into the blood stream. Through circulation of blood, these poisonous substances are pervaded to various muscles of their bodies. Slaughter not only terminates the normal cleansing functions of the body but also leaves the animals saturated with their own waste substances.
 
Toxin wastes, including uric acid are present in the blood and tissue, as also are bacteria from animal diseases, such as hoof and mouth disease, contagious abortion, swine fever, malignant tumor, etc…Urea and uric acid which deposit in the muscle fibers of meat are among the most eminent wastes that a meat-eater burdens his body with. A pound of beefsteak contains about 14 grams of uric acid. The additional intake of uric acid is too much for the kidneys and liver to eliminate beside the body’s own daily production and as a result, the excess uric acid is deposited throughout the body hence causing painful conditions of gout, rheumatism, headache, epilepsy, hardening of the arteries and nervousness and many others.
 
Chemical poisoning from pesticide residues, antibiotics, hormones, drugs or other chemical which are fed to the cattle, hogs, or poultry, are all too likely to wind up in meat-eater’s body as well. With reference to a report study issued by the General Accounting Office (the congressional audit agency) in 1979, 143 drugs and pesticides are identified as likely to leave residues in raw meat and poultry. Out of which, 42 are suspected of causing cancer, 20 of causing birth defects and 6 of causing mutations. Therefore, animals can be a direct source of infection to man who risks eating meat. According to “The Meat Handbook” by Albert Levy, more than 70 known animal diseases can be transmitted to man.   
 
The Journal of the American Medical Association has reported:
 
“….a vegetarian diet can prevent 90% of our thromboembolic disease and 94% of our coronary occlusions,” meaning heart disease.
 
Man is by nature a vegetarian spiritually. In the Genesis of the Bible, under the story of creation, God, after created human said, “I have provided all kinds of grain and all kinds of fruit for you to eat; but for all the wild animals and for all the birds I have provided grass and leafy plants for food.”
 
Vegetarianism is growing rapidly and according to a report in BBC Britain, the growth is 60% and if this trend continues, in the 21st century, the world will see half the population taking vegetarian food for good.
 
Why is Vegetarianism so intensely initiated by Sages?
 
Initiation of Vegetarianism by Sages, is more than a matter of refraining from flesh-food or animal products to maintain a healthy physique; because man is not just a body of mere biological organism. The greatest concern is the acquisition of insights into man’s innermost being which is frequently referred to as his “Spiritual Nature or Conscience.” From the standpoint of Nature’s Law and Order, all creations are one – that is, all life forms whether human or non-human, are descendants of a Common Root. It is the Universal Brotherhood and an adherence to Truth and the Gospel of Non-Violence.
 
Confucius said, “The object of the superior man is TRUTH, food is not his object. Man is born for UPRIGHTNESS. Do not do unto others what you do not want others to do unto you.” This extends to all sentient beings.
 
Mencius said, “Moreover, Heaven gives birth to creatures in such a way that they have One Root. All men have a mind which cannot bear to see the sufferings of others. So, is the superior man affected towards animals, that, having seen them alive, he cannot bear to see them die; having heard their dying cries, he cannot bear to eat their flesh.”
 
Goddess of Mercy said, “Show mercy, in return you shall receive mercy.” This extends to all sentient beings. Vegetarianism is showing mercy to the poor animals before being slaughtered because they have fear and pain just like human. If we spare them the fear and pain, maybe one day someone will also spare us the same fear and pain. This is, in return we shall have mercy.
 
Master JiGong said, “Why look for mountain's delicacies and deep sea food? A bowl of noodle will suffice because after the three inches down the throat, there is no more taste!” This is a poem dictated by JiGong:
“A word for the flesh-eaters
Do remember that, in eating flesh
This life is what you have sown in the past
But your future life lies on how you cultivate last
In flesh-eating, you take the pleasures of today
And fear not the worry of tomorrows
That back to others you must pay!”
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

  

 

 

 

Eating meat is like eating dead bodies as in this picture or a graveyard for the animals.
 
The teeth of herbivorous animal is gentle for chewing fruits and vegetables. Human has the same set of teeth, not meant for meat eating by nature.
The canine teeth of meat eating carnivorous animals are sharp for tearing the meat and fierce looking.
 
 
Chemical poisoning in all kinds of food. This causes all kinds of sicknesses.
The clotting of blood and deposition of Cholesterol in artery causing heart disease and attack.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Chinese word of meat (Roh) below has mystical meaning. It means "Human eats Human."
Below is like a shoulder, body or a cooking pot without the two human beings inside.
This is the Chinese word of Human being (Ren).
One Human is half inside the cooking pot with the head above the pot and if you go back to the Chinese word of meat above, another human is inside the cooking pot. This means Human eats Human. 
Simple food is what we need, such as the pictures below.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Why need mountain's delicacies and deep sea food? The poor crabs being tied up before ending up in the cooking pot. A bowl of noodle will suffice, says JiGong.
