	Please explain more on this. I have heard that Vishvamithra once
did neivedhyam of meat. Is this not a valid practice ? Are Kshyatriyas not
allowed to eat meat(after offering it to Lord) ? 
    I believe Brahmanas are not allowed to eat meat. But not so for
Kshatriyas. They are given some discount.. ie.. they can eat ONLY after
offering it to the lord.
 Please correct me if I am wrong.
