33 Spiritual Reasons for being vegetarian/vegan

34 Sai Baba on Meat Eating Today, let it be anyone, whether one deems himself a devotee or not, he should give up meat eating. Why? Meat eating promotes only animal qualities and demonic tendencies. It has been well said that the food one consumes determines ones thoughts. By eating the flesh of various animals, the qualities of these animals are imbibed. Hence those who genuinely seek to become devotees of God have to give up non- vegetarian food. Calling themselves Sai devotees or devotees of Rama and Krishna, they fatten themselves on chickens. How can they be deemed Sai devotees? Therefore, whether they are devotees in India or outside, they should give up from this instant meat eating. Those who aspire to become true devotees of God have to give up meat, liquor, smoking and gambling.
