THE BAHAI FAITH

“…ALL MEATS EATEN BY LIVING BEINGS ARE OF THEIR OWN RELATIVES.” ~ Lankavatara Sutra
“Also, after the birth of the baby care must be exercised not to kill any animal in order to feed the mother with meaty delicacies and not to assemble many relatives to drink liquor or to eat meat…. because at the difficult time of birth there are innumerable evil demons, monsters and goblins who want to consume the smelly blood… by ignorantly and adversely resorting to the killing of animals for consumption… they bring down curses upon themselves, which are detrimental to both the mother and the baby.” ~ Ksitigarbha Sutra
“Be careful during the days immediately after someone’s death, not killing or destroying or creating evil karma by worshipping or offering sacrifice to demons and deities… because such killing and slaughtering committed or such worship performed or such sacrifice offered WOULD NOT HAVE EVEN AN IOTA OF FORCE TO BENEFIT THE DEAD, BUT WOULD ENTWINE EVEN MORE SINFUL KARMA INTO PREVIOUS KARMA, MAKING IT EVEN DEEPER AND MORE SERIOUS. …thus, DELAY HIS REBIRTH TO A GOOD STATE.” Iota means minutest (almost zero) trace. Karma means retribution. ~ Ksitigarbha Sutra
“If bhiksus do not wear garments made of silk, boots of local leather and furs, and refrain from consuming milk, cream and butter therefrom, they will really be liberated… If a man can (control) his body and mind and thereby refrains from eating animal flesh and wearing animal products, I say he will really be liberated.” Bhiksus means monks. ~ Surangama Sutra
“If any of my disciples still eats meat, know that he is of the candela’s lineage. HE IS NOT MY DISCIPLE and I am not his teacher. Therefore, Mahamati, if anyone wishes to be my relative, HE SHOULD NOT EAT ANY MEAT.” Candela means killer or murderer. ~ Lankavatara Sutra
“...The most important thing is to stop killing... because animals also have souls and understand like humans... IF WE KILL AND EAT THEM, THEN WE OWE THEM A BLOOD DEBT.” ~ Teachings of the Saints
“Meats for the belly, and the belly for meats: but God shall destroy both it and them.” ~ Holy Bible

You see, eating animal flesh, meaning we are decreasing our love in our being, from our structure, holy structure. We are born from God, we were holy, we were true children of God. But if we eat the animals, then the mixing of blood type and genetic code between human and animals makes us lose our status as the crown of creation.
As pure humans, the children of God, we are under direct connection with the Light, with the mighty Master power of the commanding center of the universe. We have absolute command over all under Heaven, because we were pure, and we’re children of God. But as we keep putting different elements into our beings, even physically, it will affect our spiritual structure as well. Because we became mix-ling, mixing structure, not pure, we became hybrid, vulnerable to attack from the dark force, because we are not pure anymore. Thus, this kind of mix-ling creature could be annihilated, because this mix-ling creature sends very confusing energy, confusing message into the center of the universe. It’s not recognized as pure human. So we could be eliminated, out of the physical realm, to be recycled, to be screened out for pureness again and to be reused. But this process can be very painful and torturous, over long periods, could be hundreds of thousands of Earth years.
Everybody knows that vegan diet is good for health and to save the planet. They will be awakening their own great, compassionate, loving self-nature. And then their level of consciousness will rise up automatically. And they will understand more than they ever did. And they will be closer to Heaven than what they are right now.
