      Well by that mean you should eat it… but your first preference is to avoid that stuff if you know that it is with a thing that is certainly related like your body. At the same time i would recommend you to eat that if you have nothing to eat at that moment of time…

      Siri Singh Sahib ji in his punjabi audio said that you could easily put a knife on an animal and eat it with much joy… just try to do it(with knife) with yourself.

        Well i could just recommend you these too aricles which made me a vegetarian.. http://www.sikhiwiki.org/index.php/SGGS_on_Meat http://www.sikhiwiki.org/index.php/Veg

        And just think about this shabad..

        ਜੀਅ ਬਧਹੁ ਸੁ ਧਰਮੁ ਕਰਿ ਥਾਪਹੁ ਅਧਰਮੁ ਕਹਹੁ ਕਤ ਭਾਈ ॥
        ਆਪਸ ਕਉ ਮੁਨਿਵਰ ਕਰਿ ਥਾਪਹੁ ਕਾ ਕਉ ਕਹਹੁ ਕਸਾਈ ॥੨॥

        You kill living beings, and call it a righteous action.
        Tell me, brother, what would you call an unrighteous action?
        You call yourself the most excellent sage; then who would you call a butcher? ((2))
