Are eggs vegetarian? Isn't milk non-vegetarian?


Answer: All animal products are non-vegetarian.
Since egg doesn’t grow on plants, it should be considered a non-vegetarian product.

Even if procuring an egg may not involve animal killing, we don’t recommend eating it because it is after all the dead fetus of a chicken—a low-class tamasik food.

By the same logic, one may argue that milk is also a non-vegetarian product, so why do you take it?

Our philosophy is not that we take only vegetarian products and reject all that is non-vegetarian.

We are more concerned with what Krishna would like to accept from us.

The scriptures definitely promote the use of vegetables and milk products.

When Lord Krishna was personally present on earth, He took care of cows and consumed milk and milk products.

Besides Krishna personally says in the Bhagavad-gita that He will accept leaf, flower, fruit or water if they are offered with love; He doesn’t mention egg or meat in the list.



  1. I have a question. As far as milk is concerned don't you think the time has changed now ? In Krishna's time people used to take care of cows and now with so much of population to serve, cows are tortured to give milk.

  2. Now a days Poultry Eggs have no embryo inside them, it is not a dead foetus because there is no foetus inside a Farm Egg. It is as vegetarian as milk. Krishna would consume Eggs if he was present present today. Please serve eggs in the midday meals you provide to the school children, it has the best nutrient combination.

  3. Nowadays, procuring eggs require you to kill the male chicks in the process, because it is not economical to raise the male chicks. Usually, the male chicks are massacred after the gender is determined a while after hatching.

  4. There are no love in cow milking industries nowadays. Using Krishna's love for cows as an excuse to consume milk products – this is the worse vegetarian mindset.

  5. it's not about veg or non veg?….
    it's all about retaining dharma… the dharma here is very important, if a man got a job in military, and he along with his/her peers sent to a camp, there for the team need to survive, he must and should kill the animals which all are got captured in their surroundings ,and have to eat it, as their last resort; if any one of them rejected eating meat says, that he is a vegetarian, he will become easy target for militants and coz of him/her the remaining soldiers face the consequences, again for not doing his/her dharma, he will attain sin in next life….." hinduism is nothing but dharmism"… don't pray to God ok but you need to follow dharma or else the dharma will engulf you one day…🙏
