Hare Krishna to all!!
All glories to His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada !!!
I want my doubt to be clarified/discussed as I found few texts in Manu Smriti which support directly about animal eating(only few, not all).
In Manu smriti - (Laws of Manu), Chapter 5, Vesrse 18 says -:
The porcupine, the hedgehog, the iguana, the rhinoceros, the tortoise, and the hare they declare to be eatable; likewise those (domestic animals) that have teeth in one jaw only, excepting camels.
He further, says, in same chapter, verse 30 -:
The eater who daily even devours those destined to be his food, commits no sin;
for the creator himself created both the eaters and those who are to be eaten (for those special purposes).
Recently, I read a book "Chant and be Happy" where in one of excerpts of Srila Prabhupada's, He mentions that start chanting , you yourself will start following the regulative principles.
and anyone can exprience that very fact that being vegetarian gives quick results of chanting.
I myself is vegetarian(used to eat egg earlier) and just wanted to discuss the same as found deviation in Manu Smriti which records the words of Brahma by Manu.
