Beef and Hinduism (think inside the box)

I always wondered why majority of modern-day Hindus refused to eat beef but would not be hesitant to eat any other kind of meat. Why this hypocrisy? Well following is an interesting conversation between a Christian Cardinal and Krsna-Conscious Spiritual Master Srila Prabhupada.

Modern version of Hinduism allows eating certain meats but then it isn’t true Hinduism. Similarly as “thou shall not kill” is a religious commandment, but maintaining state-of-the-art slaughter houses is in direct defiance with it. Killing any breathing organism for pleasure of tongue is the biggest sin, and we are committing this sin everyday. Killing a life is killing a life… Nature doesn’t differentiate which life is killed specifically. And the force that guides nature is Karma. Yes, Karma is a bitch… for it reciprocates these sinful killings among humanity as violence, blood-shed, wars, hatred, racism, the list can go on…

In my previous post I tried to bring across the point of how we have manufactured our religions to fit our modern lifestyle. Wake up my fellow beings and try thinking in the box for the answers are right in front of us.
