Steven Rosen (Satyaraja Dasa)
Why are these four practices such a fundamental part of Vaisnava culture? Learn more about the effects of vegetarianism, continence, sobriety, and honesty in a spiritual context.
They are called the Four Regulative Principles, practices that define the daily life of a Vaisnava. We are told that the concious effort to avoid meat-eating, illicit sex, intoxication, and gambling will change our lives for the better. It will open our hearts and minds to improve our lifestyle.
These aren't just traditional rules handed down through time, but solid moral and ethical principles that are the fundementals of becoming a self-realized soul. They have as much impact on individuals as they do on a society. But why these four issues?
