What are the main facts about Sikh food?

In Sikhism , only vegetarian food is served in the Gurdwara , but Sikhs are not totally bound to be meat-free. The general consensus is that Sikhs are free to choose whether to adopt the vegetarian or meat diet [1] , although once baptized by taking Amrit , some minority sects of Sikhs ( Damdami Taksal , Akhand Kirtani Jatha , Namdharis , Guru Nanak Nishkam Sewak Jatha and the 3HO ), believe that a Sikh should be meat free [2] , however this is not a Universally held belief amongst Sikhs. Orthodox Sikhs believe that once Amrit is taken, Sikh's are only prohibited from eating Kuttha or ritually slaughtered (Halal, Kosher) meat. Sri Guru Granth Sahib , the holiest book talks about vegetarianism and spirituality in the following couplet:. - First Mehl: The fools argue about flesh and meat, but they know nothing about meditation and spiritual wisdom. What is called meat, and what is called green vegetables? What leads to sin? It was the habit of the gods to kill the rhinoceros, and make a feast of the burnt offering. Those who renounce meat, and hold their noses when sitting near it, devour men at night. They practice hypocrisy, and make a show before other people, but they do not understand anything about meditation or spiritual wisdom. O Nanak, what can be said to the blind people? They cannot answer, or even understand what is said. They alone are blind, who act blindly. They have no eyes in their hearts. They are produced from the blood of their mothers and fathers, but they do not eat fish or meat. . Page 1289 [3] Sri Guru Granth Sahib . On the views that eating meat would be eating flesh, first Sikh Guru Nanak states:. AGGS, M 1, p 1290. [4] - First Mehl: ਪਾਂਡੇ ਤੂ ਜਾਣੈ ਹੀ ਨਾਹੀ ਕਿਥਹੁ ਮਾਸੁ ਉਪੰਨਾ ॥ ਤੋਇਅਹੁ ਅੰਨੁ ਕਮਾਦੁ ਕਪਾਹਾਂ ਤੋਇਅਹੁ ਤ੍ਰਿਭਵਣੁ ਗੰਨਾ ॥ O Pandit, you do not know where did flesh originate! It is water where life originated and it is water that sustains all life. It is water that produces grains, sugarcane, cotton and all forms of life. . Sikhism is a liberal, tolerant faith that acknowledges personal liberty and the crucial proponent of human nature, free will [5] . As such, Sikh philosophy and Scriptures are not didactic in nature, for Sikhism offers spiritual, ethical and moral guidance to a fulfilling way of life rather than a tightly-construed and strict religious discipline. As a result, it is the subject of much debate as to whether Sikhs are prohibited by the Sikh Code of Conduct, the Rehat Maryada , from eating meat. The consensus is however, Sikhs are bound to avoid meat that is killed in a ritualistic manner [6] e.g. Halal , Kosher etc. [7] [8] Within the Gurdwara, the Guru ka Langar (Guru's community kitchen) serves purely vegetarian food, freshly prepared from all natural ingredients for all people, at all times. The reason for serving vegetarian food is that the Langar is open to all. Since many faiths and people have varying taboos on what to eat and how meat should be prepared etc, and since Sikhs accept these restrictions and accommodate people no matter their faith or culture, the safest option thought by the Sikh Gurus was to adopt vegetarian food for Langar. The exception to vegetarian langar is when Nihangs , ( a minor but oldest Sikh sect in India) serve meat [9] on the occasion of Holla Mohalla , and call it MahaPrashad . Sikhism argues that the soul can possibly undergo millions of transformations as various forms of life before ultimately becoming human. These life forms could be a rock, vegetation or animal. Sikhism does not see a difference between mineral, vegetation and animal. The only distinction made is that between these (mineral, vegetation and animal), and human. [10] The first Sikh Guru Nanak Dev said it was a pointless argument to debate the merits of either not eating or eating meat in the context of religion, as maintaining a strict diet does not make one blessed or elevate one to a superior status, spiritually or otherwise, over another. Being a member of a religion incorporates not merely one's dietary customs but the entire way in which they govern their lifestyle. [11] He advocated a lifestyle consisting of honest, hard work and humility Kirat Karni , focus and remembrance of God Naam Japna and compassion for all of humanity and God's creation all around Vaṇḍ chakkō , with these 3 key principles taking far greater precedence over one's mere dietary habits.. Sikh Intellectual Views on Vegetarianism and Sikhism Many articles have been written by Sikh intellectuals on this issue. A summary of their views is cited below . Dr I. J Singh states that throughout Sikh history, there have been many subsects of Sikhism that have espoused vegetarianism however, this was rejected by the Sikh Guru's. [12] . The Sikh thinking being that vegetarianism and meat eating was unimportant in the realm of spirituality. Surinder Singh Kohli links vegetarianism to Vashnavite behaviour [13] . Dr Gopal Singh commenting on meat being served in the langar during the time of Guru Angad [14] Dr Gyani Sher Singh who was the head Priest at the Golden temple comments that Ahimsa does not fit in with Sikh doctrine [15] . W. Owen Cole and Piara Singh Sambhi [16] comment that if the Sikh Guru's had made an issue on vegetarianism, it would have distracted from the main emphasis of Sikh spirituality. Dr H S Singha and Satwant Kaur [17] comment on how ritually slaughtered meat is considered a sin for initiated Sikhs. Dr Surinder Singh Kohli comments on the "Fools Wrangle Over Flesh" [18] quotation from the Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji by how Guru Nanak mocked hypocritical vegetarian priests. Dr Gobind Mansukhi states how vegetarianism and meat eating has been left to the Sikh individual [19] G S Sidhu comments again on how ritually slaughtered meat is taboo for a Sikh [20] Dr Gurbakh Singh comments on how non-Kutha [21] meat is acceptable for the Sikhs. Dr Devinder Singh Chahal [22] comments on the difficulties of distinguishing between plant and animalin Sikh philosophy.Dr H S Singha comments in his book how the Sikh Guru's ate meat [23] The Sikh Code of Conduct on the Vegetarian Issue Leading Sikh intellectuals ruled on this issue in the 1920s (as some Sikh Sects confused the issue by trying to get all Sikhs to be vegetarian) and came up with the following rule or Code of Conduct for baptised Sikhs with regards to meat and Vegetarianism:. Sikh Rehat Maryada - In the Rehat Maryada ( http://www.sgpc.net/rehat_maryada/section_six.HTML ), Section Six, it states: The undermentioned four transgressions (tabooed practices) must be avoided 1. Dishonouring the hair; 2. Eating the meat of an animal slaughtered the Muslim way(Kutha); 3. Cohabiting with a person other than one's spouse 4. Using tobacco. . There are groups such as the Akhand Kirtani Jatha that dispute the meaning of the word Kuttha, and say it means all meat, however, in mainstream Sikhism this word has been accepted to mean, as that which is sacrificed for example Halal or Kosher. Historical dietary behaviour of Sikhs There are a number of eyewitness accounts from European travellers as to the eating habits of Sikhs. [24] Although there is no prohibition on Sikhs for eating beef, it is clear that Sikhs as a mark of respect for their Hindu neighbours did not partake in eating beef. [25] , [26] To initiate Mohammedans into their mysteries, one traveller said the Sikhs would prepare a Dish of Hogs legs. [27] According to Dabistan e Mazhib (a contemporary Persian chronology of the Sikh Guru's) Guru Nanak (this differs from Dr I J Singh's research that states that Guru Nanak ate meat on the way to Kurukshetra [28] ) did not eat meat, and Guru Arjan, one of successors, thought that meat eating was not in accordance with Nanak's wishes. However, his son, Hargobind, ate meat and hunted, and his practice was adopted by most Sikhs. [29] Bhai Gurdas who was a contemporary of the Sixth Sikh Guru, wrote Vaars (Poems/Couplets), to describe the behaviour of Sikhs at that time. In one of his Vaars actually praises the merits of goat meat [30] See also . Professor Gurbax Singh Dhillon - Meat Eating and Rehat Maryada .

Singh, Manohar, Delhi http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Special:Booksources&isbn=9788173040580 Throughout Sikh history, there have been movements or subsects of Sikhism which have espoused vegetarianism. I think there is no basis for such dogma or practice in Sikhism. Certainly Sikhs do not think that a vegetarian's achievements in spirituality are easier or higher. It is surprising to see that vegetarianism is such an important facet of Hindu practice in light of the fact that animal sacrifice was a significant and much valued Hindu Vedic ritual for ages. Guru Nanak in his writings clearly rejected both sides of the arguments - on the virtues of vegetarianism or meat eating - as banal and so much nonsense, nor did he accept the idea that a cow was somehow more sacred than a horse or a chicken. He also refused to be drawn into a contention on the differences between flesh and greens, for instance. History tells us that to impart this message, Nanak cooked meat at an important Hindu festival in Kurukshetra. Having cooked it he certainly did not waste it, but probably served it to his followers and ate himself. History is quite clear that Guru Hargobind and Guru Gobind Singh were accomplished and avid hunters. The game was cooked and put to good use, to throw it away would have been an awful waste . . ^ Guru Granth Sahib, An Analytical Study by Surindar Singh Kohli, Singh Bros. Amritsar http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Special:Booksources&isbn=8172050607 The ideas of devotion and service in Vaishnavism have been accepted by Adi Granth, but the insistence of Vaishnavas on vegetarian diet has been rejected. . ^ A History of the Sikh People by Dr. Gopal Singh, World Sikh University Press, Delhi http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Special:Booksources&isbn=9788170231394 However, it is strange that now-a-days in the Community-Kitchen attached to the Sikh temples, and called the Guru's Kitchen (or, Guru-ka-langar) meat-dishes are not served at all. May be, it is on account of its being, perhaps, expensive, or not easy to keep for long. Or, perhaps the Vaishnava tradition is too strong to be shaken off. . ^ Philosophy of Sikhism by Gyani Sher Singh (Ph.D), Shiromani Gurdwara Parbandhak Committee. Amritsar As a true Vaisnavite Kabir remained a strict vegetarian. Kabir far from defying Brahmanical tradition as to the eating of meat, would not permit so much, as the plucking of a flower (G.G.S. pg 479), whereas Nanak deemed all such scruples to be superstitions, Kabir held the doctrine of Ahinsa or the non-destruction of life, which extended even to that of flowers. The Sikh Gurus, on the contrary, allowed and even encouraged, the use of animal flesh as food. Nanak has exposed this Ahinsa superstition in Asa Ki War (G.G.S. pg 472) and Malar Ke War (G.G.S. pg. 1288) . ^ A Popular Dictionary of Sikhism, W.Owen Cole and Piara Singh Sambhi, England http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Special:Booksources&isbn=9780844204246 The Gurus were loath to pronounce upon such matters as the eating of meat or ways of disposing of the dead because undue emphasis on them could detract from the main thrust of their message which had to do with spiritual liberation. However, Guru Nanak did reject by implication the practice of vegetarianism related to ideas of pollution when he said, 'All food is pure; for God has provided it for our sustenance' (AG 472). Many Sikhs are vegetarian and meat should never be served at langar. Those who do eat meat are unlikely to include beef in their diet, at least in India, because of their cultural proximity to Hindus. . ^ Sikhism, A Complete Introduction by Dr. H.S. Singha and Satwant Kaur, Hemkunt Press, Delhi SBN 81-7010-245-6 In general Sikhism has adopted an ambivalent attitude towards meat eating as against vegetarianism. But if meat is to be taken at all, Guru Gobind Singh enjoined on the Khalsa Panth not to take kosher meat ie. Halal meat slaughtered and prepared for eating according to the Islamic practice. In fact it is one of the kurahits for every amritdhari Sikh. One who infringes it becomes patit (apostate). . ^ Real Sikhism by Surinder Singh Kohli, Harman Publishing, New Delhi http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Special:Booksources&isbn=8185151644 A close study of the above-mentioned hymns of Guru Nanak Dev clarifies the Sikh standpoint regarding meat-eating. The Guru has not fallen into the controversy of eating or not eating animal food. He has ridiculed the religious priests for raising their voice in favour of vegetarianism. He called them hypocrites and totally blind to the realities of life. They are unwise and thoughtless persons, who do not go into the root of the matter. According to him, the water is the source of all life whether vegetable or animal. Guru Nanak Dev said. "None of the grain of corn is without life. In the first place, there is life in water, by which all are made green" (Var Asa M.1, p. 472). Thus there is life in vegetation and life in all types of creatures. . ^ Introduction to Sikhism by Dr. Gobind Singh Mansukhani, Hemkunt Press, Delhi http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Special:Booksources&isbn=8170101816 The Gurus neither advocate meat nor banned its use. They left it to the choice of the individual. There are passages against meat, in the Adi Granth. Guru Gobind Singh however prohibited for the Khalsa the use of Halal or Kutha meat prepared in the Muslim ritualistic way. . ^ Introduction to Sikhism by G.S. Sidhu, Shromini Sikh Sangat, Toronto http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Special:Booksources&isbn=0900692073 There are no restrictions for the Sikhs regarding food, except that the Sikhs are forbidden to eat meat prepared as a ritual slaughter. The Sikhs are asked to abstain from intoxicants. . ^ The Sikh Faith by Gurbakhsh Singh, Canadian Sikh Study and Teaching Society, Vancouver http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Special:Booksources&isbn=9788172051884 According to the Maryada booklet 'Kutha', the meat prepared by the Muslim ritual, is prohibited for a Sikh. Regarding eating other meat, it is silent. From the prohibition of the Kutha meat, it is rightly presumed that non-Kutha meat is not prohibited for the Sikhs. Beef is prohibited to the Hindus and pork to the Muslims. Jews and Christians have their own taboos. They do not eat certain kinds of meat on certain days. Sikhs have no such instructions. If one thinks he needs to eat meat, it does not matter which meat it is, beef, poultry, fish, etc., or which day it is. One should, however, be careful not to eat any meat harmful for his health. Gurbani's instructions on this topic are very clear. "Only fools argue whether to eat meat or not. Who can define what is meat and what is not meat? Who knows where the sin lies, being a vegetarian or a non-vegetarian?" (1289) The Brahmanical thought that a religious person should be a vegetarian is of recent origin. Earlier, Brahmans had been eating beef and horse meat. In conclusion, it is wrong to say that any person who eats meat (of course Kutha, because of the Muslim rituals is prohibited) loses his membership of the Khalsa and becomes an apostate. . ^ Scientific Interpretation of Gurbani, Paper by Dr. Devinder Singh Chahal www.iuscanada.com/journal/articles/art002.HTML The above discussion leads us to the conclusion that the Sikh Gurus made people aware of the fact that it is very difficult to distinguish between a plant and an animal, therefore, it is difficult to distinguish between a vegetarian and a non-vegetarian diets and there is no sin of eating food originating from plants or animals. . ^ Mini Encyclopaedia of Sikhism by H.S. Singha, Hemkunt Press, Delhi. http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Special:Booksources&isbn=8170102006 The practice of the Gurus is uncertain. Guru Nanak seems to have eaten venison or goat, depending upon different janamsakhi versions of a meal which he cooked at Kurukshetra which evoked the criticism of Brahmins. Guru Amardas ate only rice and lentils but this abstention cannot be regarded as evidence of vegetarianism, only of simple living. Guru Gobind Singh also permitted the eating of meat but he prescribed that it should be Jhatka meat and not Halal meat that is jagged in the Muslim fashion. . ^ Siques, Tigers or Thieves Parmjit Singh & Amandeep Singh Madra http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Special:Booksources&isbn=978140396201 . ^ William Francklin in his writing about Mr George Thomas 1805 The Seiks receive Proselytes of almost every Cast, a point in which they differ most materially from the Hindoos. To initiate Mohammedans into their mysteries, they prepare a Dish of Hogs legs, which the Converts are obliged to partake of, previous to admission………………..They are not prohibited the use of Animal food of any kind, excepting Beef, which they are rigidly scrupulous in abstaining from. . ^ Extract from an officer in the Bengal Army and is taken from the Asiatic Annual Register 1809 The seiks are remarkably fond of the flesh of the jungle hog, which they kill in chase: this food is allowable by their law. They likewise eat of mutton and fish; but these being unlawful the Brahmins will not partake, leaving those who chose to transgress their institutes to answer for themselves. . ^ John Griffiths writes in February 17th 1794 Now become a Singh, he is a heterodox, and distinct from the Hindoos by whom he is considered an apostate. He is not restricted in his diet, but is allowed, by the tenets of his new religion, to devour whatever food his appetite may prompt, excepting beef. . ^ Sikhs and Sikhism by I.J.

Nanak believed in the Oneness of God and in the way that it is asserted in Muhammadan theology. He also believed in transmigration of souls. Holding wine and pork to be unlawful, he had [himself] abandoned eating meat. He decreed avoidance of causing harm to animals. It was after his time that meat-eating spread amongst his followers. Arjan Mal, who was on of his lineal succesors, found this to be evil. He prohibited people from eating meat, saying "This is not in accordance with Nanak's wishes". Later, Hargobind, son of Arjan Mal, ate meat and took to hunting. Most of their [the Gurus] followers adopted his practice . . ^ http://searchgurbani.com/main.php?book=bhai_gurdas_vaaran&action=pauripage&vaar=23&pauri=13 The proud elephant is inedible and none eats the mighty lion. Goat is humble and hence it is respected everywhere. On occasions of death, joy, marriage, yajna, etc only its meat dis accepted. Among the householders its meat is acknowledged as sacred and with its gut stringed instruments are made. From its leather the shoes are made to be used by the saints merged in their meditation upon the Lord. Drums are mounted by its skin and then in the holy congregation the delight-giving kirtan, eulogy of the Lord, is sung. In fact, going to the holy congregation is the same as going to the shelter of the true Guru. .

The French Bulldog gets along well with other children as well as with other animals, although he may try and hunt very small animals such as rodents. With strangers most will be friendly and welcoming, although some can be reserved. The French Bulldog can make an effective watchdog as he will be vocal if he senses danger. These dogs are very active for their size, and this is something that should be watched, as it can mean danger - for instance, if your French Bulldog falls into a pool he is likely to drown, as most cannot swim. The French Bulldog, in short, makes a wonderful family pet and will get along with practically anyone and anything. However, these are not dogs that will make good exercise companion for those that are very active, as their short muzzles mean that they can get worn out quickly and may be prone to respiratory problems if over exerted.. French Bulldog Appearance . The French Bulldog has a small, compact, chunky build, and a typical pug-like face with a down-turned mouth that makes him look grumpy. However, you can see the intelligence, eagerness, and even a hint of naughtiness in the eyes of these dogs. The coat of the French Bulldog is close, short, and smooth, and the coloring includes cream, brindle, pied, and black and fawn. The weight of the French Bulldog is around 20-28 pounds and the height is around 11-14 inches.. French Bulldog Grooming . The grooming requirements for the French Bulldog are relatively low, which is ideal if you do not have that much time to dedicate to grooming. His short coat needs an occasional brushing to keep it looking good, and you should ensure that the wrinkles and folds on his face are cleaned, and that you check his ears are dry and clean to avoid infection and for hygiene reasons. This is a fairly low shedder on a seasonal basis, and so may prove suitable for those with allergies.. French Bulldog Health Problems and Life Expectancy . The life expectancy of the French Bulldog is around 10-12 years, and there are a number of health problems that are linked to this breed. The short muzzle of the breed means that over exertion can lead to respiratory problems, and they can be very sensitive to extreme temperatures, both hot and cold. Other issues to look out for include HD and elbow dysplasia, elongated soft palate, spinal problems, luxating patella, cataracts, allergies, and thyroid problems. The parents of the French Bulldog puppy should have OFA and CERF certificates, and screening for vWD should also be carried out.. French Bulldog History . The French Bulldog is classed as originating from France, although there is some controversy over the breed's true origins. These dogs became popular as raters in the nineteenth century, and then went on to become popular amongst artists and the like. The breed was registered with the AKC in 1898.. More Information . The hallmark of the French Bulldog, a close relative of the Bulldog, is the bat ear, which gives an inquiring look to its quaint, short-nosed face. The breed was developed in France by laceworkers who had emigrated from Nottingham, England, in search of higher paying jobs. They took Miniature Bulldogs with them, which they crossed with local breeds, eventually arriving at a breed they named the Bouldogue Francais. Originally two ear types were acceptable: the rose ear, typical of the Bulldog, and the bat ear, which prevailed as correct for the Frenchie. For show purposes the breed may be divided into two weight classes: under 22 pounds and 22 to 28 pounds. Dogs exceeding this upper limit are disqualified from competition. The smooth coat, in colors of fawn or brindle, solid white, or brindle and white, is short, fine and easily tended with weekly brushing. The Frenchie makes an excellent house pet for the less active individual, as its exercise needs are moderate, and it adapts well to any size living quarters. The breed is quiet and well mannered and makes a fine watchdog. It's not a barker, but like all snub-nosed breeds, it tends to snort when excited and snore when asleep. Positive, consistent training works best with this breed. (Editor's Note: Coat colors of solid black, mouse, liver, black-and-tan, black-and-white, and white with black will be disqualified in the AKC show ring.)

What fun facts are about a french horn?

There are a lot of fun facts about the French Horn, but here are a few: . The French Horn is obviously a member of the Brass family of instruments: constructed of brass (or at least metal) tubing, sounded by a brass-style (lip-reed) mouthpiece. And yet, while it sits easily in the Brass Quintet and other Brass ensembles, it is also considered irreplaceable in the Woodwind Quintet! . The French Horn sits easily in the lap of its player, and can be lifted and carried with ease. However, the tubing, if stretched straight, would be about (and I do mean about!) 18' long. The 'double horn', which has two sets of valves and an additional valve which chooses between the sets, will be even longer. . The French Horn is one of a small group of instruments which have changed little from their roots in the Renaissance. The natural horn is roughly the same length, has approximately the same bore size (although thicker walls) and pretty much the same bell diameter as the modern single Horn, and a good player can play most Baroque and Renaissance music that would have been played on a natural horn without touching his valves! The natural horn used "crooks" to change the key it played in: each crook was a turn of tubing which added just enough length to the over all horn to change the key properly. It was inserted between the mouthpiece and the horn. The valves of the modern horn do exactly the same thing, except that the tubing is 'switched' in by valves and are located more near the center of the horn's tube. . French Horn players are known for having a bizarre sense of humor, although this may be stereotyping. It is generally felt that the Horn is so hard to play, that no one who lacks a bizarre sense of humor would stick with it. . The Horn player puts his hand into the bell of the horn to play it. This is both utilitarian (since it allows the player to modify the tone and perhaps even the pitch as they play) and a holdover from the Natural Horn. By pressing their hand into the bell, the horn player could raise the pitch of the instrument by a half-tone, filling in the gaps between diatonic notes in the harmonic series. . Here's one last one, at least for now: In the orchestra, the Horn section is divided into "high horns" and "low horns". Although the best players can play the entire range of the instrument with the same facility and beauty of tone, there was a time a century or two ago when horn players specialized in playing high or low.
