HINDUISM DECODED---महाभारत में यज्ञ में पशु बलि का निषेध

Does Hinduism prohibit meat eating ?
There are actually very less things as prohibits, commands, mandates etc in Hinduism. So in this case too Hinduism does not prohibit, but it recommends that meat eating could be avoided for spiritual benefits and kindness towards fellow creatures.

Is there a rule about Hindus eating meat ?

Ahimsa means refraining from injuring-physically, mentally or emotionally-anyone or any living creature. The Hindu who wishes to strictly follow the path of non-injury to all creatures naturally adopts a vegetarian diet. As in other matters, Hinduism has very few rigid "do's and don'ts." Rather, its injunctions are called restraints and observances. The ultimate authority for answers to such questions is one's own conscience. Today in America and Europe there are literally millions of vegetarians. This is because they want to live a long time and be healthy. Many feel a certain moral obligation to their own conscience which they wish to fulfill. There are no commandments. Hindu religion gives us the wisdom to make up our own mind on what we put in our body, for it is the only one we have, in this life at least.
स्वामी दयानंद के अनुसार रामायण, महाभारत, मनु स्मृति पुराण आदि में जो कुछ वेदानुकूल हैं वह मान्य हैं एवं जो कुछ वेद विरुद्ध हैं वह त्यागने योग्य हैं। इस लेख में प्रसिद्द वैदिक विद्वान एवं अथर्ववेद भाष्यकार श्री विश्वनाथ जी विद्यालंकार जी द्वारा लिखित पुस्तक वैदिक पशु यज्ञ मीमांसा से महाभारत में यज्ञ में पशु बलि का निषेध करने वाले प्रमाणों का संग्रह किया गया हैं। पाठक लाभान्वित होगे यही आशय हैं।
