"Embracing Sita with both his arms, Kakutstha (Rama) made her drink pure Maireya wine, even as Indra makes Shachi partake of nectar.

Servants quickly served flesh-meat variously dressed, & fruits of various kinds for the use of Rama" #Ramayana Verse referred by #SwamiVivekananda
#SwamiVivekananda: "Sita Devi vows meat, rice, and a thousand jars of wine to the river-goddess, Ganga!"

"Be merciful to us, O goddess, & I shall, on my return home, worship thee with a thousand jars of arrack (spirituous liquor) & rice well-dressed with flesh-meat." (#Ramayana)
#SwamiVivekananda on vegetarian Vaishnavas: "Instances are found in the Ramayana and the Mahabharata of the drinking of wine and the taking of meat by Rama and Krishna, whom they worship as God! Sita Devi vows meat, rice, and a thousand jars of wine to the river-goddess, Ganga!!"
#SwamiVivekananda on the hypocrisy of religious vegetarianism: "India has been flooded with dyspeptic Babajis living on vegetables only!! .... You find men siding with the 'non-killing' party, know it for a certainty that herein, there is either hypocrisy or a show of religion."
"When the smoke from Yajnas used to rise in the Indian Sky & Hindus ate the meat of animals sacrificed, great religious geniuses & intellectual giants were born among them; but since drifting into Babaji's vegetarianism, not one great, original man arose midst them" ~#Vivekananda
#SwamiVivekananda lamented that the culture of Vegetarianism is ruining India. He advised Youth of India to eat large quantities of Fish & Meat. He argued that non-vegetarianism not only gives you physical strength, but also mental strength, & makes you brave, heroic & thoughtful
#SwamiVivekananda's Advice to a Young Disciple conflicted about eating meat: "People of India must be fed & clothed—must be awakened—must be made more fully active. Otherwise they'll become inert, as inert as trees & stones. So, I say, EAT large quantities of FISH & MEAT MY BOY!"
