Namaskar Hamed,

Although what you say is entirely plausible and it must be admitted that a cold raw diet in the mountains could be depressing, I wonder how much of your opinion is from within your own religious upbringing. This isn't meant as a slight to you, but if you grew up eating meat, it's a hard habit to break.

Some newfound yogis go vegetarian for a few months and many return to eating meat again. Some people can't stop eating whale meat either. Even though there aren't many whales left.The problem stems from restaurants and grocery stores that make vegetarian choices extremely limited, while they stock shelves full of meat. Some produce counters are shameful with low quality vegetables and fruit.

And the choices are very limited unless I go to a Whole Foods grocery store. Would like to hear your opinion because I am almost sure we have some differences in our spiritual perception of diet and of yoga. This is a good area for us to compare our thinking and understand the source of our viewpoints. This doesn't make my view right, but I'm curious about where you are coming from.
