What do you think that meat eaters are missing out on? Because i know some vegans, and they are not anywhere near being enlightened beings. How many truly enlightened people have you met? How many truly enlightened people do you figure there are? What do you think it means to be enlightened?
I don’t think i have ever met anyone who had special knowledge about spirits or spirituality. I just hear a lot of people who are searching for it and plenty of people who pretend to be spiritual. But nobody can explain it or demonstrate it. It just seems to be some imaginary goal that can’t be pinned down and seems completely contradictory to every human i have ever met. Especially those who claim to understand.

I remember Bagwahan (osho) Rajneesh (modern guru figure) said that the further you go into spirituality/meditation, the more it will make sense to go vegan /vegetarian.
He also said that being vegan/vegetarian does not help one become spiritual, it is just a by-product of compassion and love.
Also, if you can live healthy without giving money to torturous factory farming, then why not go vegan ?
