“I’m not even a veteran, I’m vegan – which means I do not eat anything that is made of an animal, apart from honey. I’m trying my best to stop [ consuming honey] so that I can become 100 per cent vegan.” He spoke.
“Now that I am a vegan, I pay more attention to what I consume because I’m a little more conscious. And as a vegan, when I pray, it goes faster. I always wanted to be a vegetarian.”
He encouraged his followers to be vegetarians if possible since it really helps and keeps the human body in good health.
“If you can afford it and have the time, then you must be prepared to cook your lunch for the office or carry your food with you always. It is not an easy thing to do but if you can afford and have the time, please be a vegetarian.” He added.
