Bhagvad Gita and Food

Bhagvad Gita is a sacred Indian scripture.  Lord Krishna, the supreme God of Hindus has given wonderful tips to lead our life in peaceful way. Today, Bhagvad Gita has been translated into numerous languges across the world. Our world will be brimming with peace and prosperity if everyone follows Lord Krishna's teachings.  Mahatma Gandhiji often read Bhagvad Gita, for answers to the hard questions he encountered in his life.

Nearly a century ago, Mahatma Gandhiji took a vow not to consume  cow's milk when he found that cows were subjected to a cruel procedure. Mahatma Gandhi considered milk as non-vegetarian

Lord Krishna says that we should consume fruits, nuts, and freshly cooked food. Lord Krishna says,
we should try to eat Sattvic food in moderate quantity.  Lord Krishna says that cow's milk is nectar. However, the present day " cow's milk" from  is infused with harmones and cruelty. In India - land of Lord Krishna, farmers induce cows with oxyrocin harmones to produce more milk.  In many countries, cows are slaughtered once they stop producing milk.

In this day and age, meat and cow's milk go hand in hand . Thousands of people claim to follow Bhagvad Gita, but relish milk and milk products such as ghee, butter and cheese.  Today, I'm sure Lord Krishna would ask people to thrive on fresh vegan food - Ahimsa food(cruel-free food).
