Why Veganism in Iskcon does not work, part 2

This will be my last post, i have found it to be very interesting, i cannot get round what is around us in everyday life, milk is for the new life of animals up to a certain age depending on species, and humans are non different, i was at a meeting at Leicester Temple a few years ago, sat next to a Matergi, when she suddenly lifted her sari to breast feed her daughter who must have been at least six or seven, i found this confusing to say the least, to end if Iskscon must have milk, have it only from our own well looked after cows. Hari Bol!

Those devotees that say the vegan diet is nutritionally deficient, must surely take note of the book written by Steven Rosen, (one of the most seinor devottes) and i would like to quote his words on page 5 of the book Diet for Transcendence—There are thus no amino acids in flesh that animals do not derive from plants,or that humans cannot ALSO derive from plants,Iskcon must be clear these subjects, or they become very confusing to the new comer.

Hare Krishna, i am a fourth class devotee, and have been around since the late seventies, this subject has bothered me for along time, iam amazed at some of the comments of (devotees) if one thinks that the cows natural position in this life is to be kept in milking condtion for as long as posibile, they are mistaken, the mother knows when it is time for its calf to leave the milk and be put to solid the same as in humane life,if their is a little milk after the calf has had its fill fine, this should be used for the Deities, other than that we should start thinking about substutes. bhakta david.

Hare Krishna, i think HH Sivarama Swami is missing a vital point, these protected cows are milked long after the calf has gone onto solid food (grass) which can be a very long time till she dries up, i think the movment has to accept its impossible to supply the Dieities and the many thouands of devottees with the milk they require, and therefore in my opinion either go on to soya milk or refrain from milk products, (by the way) which sastra says no soy products?
