The Vedic lifestyle encourages respect for all creatures. Therefore, there is a high degree of vegetarians with those who practice Sanatana-dharma, the Vedic lifestyle. Actually, it has been said that there is no more obvious a form of spiritual ignorance than the practice of killing of animals for eating meat. It reduces our awareness of the spiritual essence [the soul] that lives in each and every creature, and causes us to be increasingly callous toward the suffering of others. Therefore, a cruelty-free existence, and one in which we help keep down the karma we accumulate in this life, naturally includes a vegetarian diet.
To encourage others in this way, and to give you all the information and means to help you be or increase your ability to be a vegetarian, you can look over the recipe books and numerous resources that are located on the following web page. This is: http://www.stephen-knapp.com/vegetarian_recipes_and_resources.htm
As this department of the VFA grows, we will naturally have much more resources and discussion to offer.
