The month of Shravan is here, and I would not be surprised if your parents or elders have advised you to avoid consuming non-vegetarian food during this month. My parents too, have always done the same with me. What is it that makes eating non-vegetarian food a taboo during the month of Shravan? My queries to understand the logic behind this practice have always been brushed aside as frivolous. The only reason one gets to hear is that Shravan is a holy month, dedicated to Lord Shiva, and so it is blasphemous to eat meat during this month. Somehow, I have never been satisfied with that answer and wanted to unravel the mystery.
It is a blind superstition or is there a scientific reason why non-vegetarian food should be avoided during this period?
