Re: [SriRangaSri] Vegetarianism - Plants have life too. (Seek Answers)

Respected bhakthas,

Adiyen have been having some basic questions abt vegetarianism.

Is that we should follow vegetaranism only with eating habits?

What abt using silk cloths (we even use them to decorate deities!)?.

Presumably, silk is got by killing thousands of silk worms! How is this 
killing different from killing animals to eat!

If anyone have read a recent news article in sifynews, 
( ), which says even toothpaste we 
use has some "non-veg" stuff.

Also, it seems even agarbathis have some "non-veg" stuff.

Pls note that Adiyen is not for "non-vegetarianism" whatsoever, but would 
like to have some convincing answers from elite members of this group.

Thank you so much,


Sathyanarayana Ramanujadasan.
