Accidentally ate beef

Recommended Posts

Guest Gupt Singh

My dad brought me some tacos from taco bell and one of them was a shell taco. He said it was fully vegetarian with no meat and it had beans instead of beans. After I hate 3 of them, I doubted that this kind of "beans" is meat. So I went on the Taco Bell menu online and saw the same exact picture of the food I was eating and it said "Soft beef". I got really scared and tried to throw up all of the meat inside of me and now I feel guilty. Guru sahib is very mad at me. I am also an amritdhari sikh. I don't know what to do in this kind of situation and I'm not fully sure if its beef or beans. Please help me out and what should I do to get the love of my Guru back!? PLEASE.... this is my benti to the sangat.

Present yourself before Guru Sahib at the next Amrit Sanchar at your Gurdwara or others in the area. Panj Piyare are quite forgiving for inadvertent mistakes.

If you find that you may have committing a patit act, you should avoid doing stuff (like making Karah Parshad) that would affect others.

Speaking generally, it is best to avoid eating out to keep Rehit. You never know when some meat or halal meat might sneak in, unless it's a 100% vegetarian restaurant like McDonalds or Subway in our capital.

If you Punj Pyare said no meat, you should do Ardas, if your Punj Pyare didn't mention any meat other than Halal, and this is Halal, do Ardas, and if in doubt go to the Punj Pyare.

Wrong religious mentality. It's not what you do, but rather why you do.

    • A moorakh like me would need to listen to Katha on this. For now, what in your opinion, is the summary of what you posted? The blemish of apostasy remains in the eyes of who? Guru Sahib? The public? The apostate himself? I can understand that it remains but what exactly is it saying? Is this blemish one of distrust?
    • Here's another post you can confused face.  I wouldn't want you to be bored.
    • No apologies required. Just to let you know where I'm coming from, Bhai Gurdas ji says when you become a bemukh, even if you come back to the Guru, the stain remains: ਜੈਸੇ ਘਾਉ ਘਾਇਲ ਕੋ ਜਤਨ ਕੈ ਨੀਕੋ ਹੋਤ ਪੀਰ ਮਿਟਿ ਜਾਇਲੀਕ ਮਿਟਤ ਨ ਪੇਖੀਐ । Just as the wound gets cured with medicine and the pain also vanishes, but the scar of the wound is never seen to vanish.  ਜੈਸੇ ਫਾਟੇ ਅੰਬਰੋ ਸੀਆਇ ਪੁਨਿ ਓਢੀਅਤ ਨਾਗੋ ਤਉ ਨ ਹੋਇ ਤਊ ਥੇਗਰੀ ਪਰੇਖੀਐ । Just as a torn cloth stitched and worn does not bare the body but the seam of the stitch is visible and conspicuous.  ਜੈਸੇ ਟੂਟੈ ਬਾਸਨੁ ਸਵਾਰ ਦੇਤ ਹੈ ਠਠੇਰੋ ਗਿਰਤ ਨ ਪਾਨੀ ਪੈ ਗਠੀਲੋ ਭੇਖ ਭੇਖੀਐ । Just as a broken utensil is repaired by coppersmith and even the water does not leak from it, but it is repaired form stays.  ਤੈਸੇ ਗੁਰ ਚਰਨਿ ਬਿਮੁਖ ਦੁਖ ਦੇਖਿ ਪੁਨਿ ਸਰਨ ਗਹੇ ਪੁਨੀਤ ਪੈ ਕਲੰਕੁ ਲੇਖ ਲੇਖੀਐ ॥੪੧੯॥ Similarly, a disciple who has turned away from the holy feet of the True Guru comes back to the Guru's refuge when he feels the pain of his actions. Although he is freed of his sins and becomes pious, yet the .blemish of his apostasy remains.  (419) ਭਾਈ ਗੁਰਦਾਸ ਜੀ : ਕਬਿੱਤ ੪੧੯ ਪੰ. ੪  
    • The Katha was Taksali based if that makes it any easier for you to understand where I was coming from. They have a certain flavour and way of explaining things. With Taksalis sometimes it's the small things that stick with you, and it's amazing how just hearing something once has the ability to change your soch, hell even your speech pattern! I completely get what you mean though. Guess it was just a misunderstanding, apologies brother.
    • I have sympathy for your approach, and I'm also not saying you're wrong. All I'm saying is (in my experience), the majority of Sikhs speak of "breaking Amrit" or ਅੰਮ੍ਰਿਤ ਤੋੜਨਾ. An alternative way of phrasing things that might be acceptable to you is "breaking your Amrit vows" or "breaking your Amrit lifestyle". As far as the original poster denigrating Amrit and Amritdharis, yes, I agree that wrong acts by some Amritdharis does not mean you can just badmouth Amritdharis as a group.
