What Yogananda Said About Eggs for Vegetarians


I have been a strict vegetarian for over 20 years (abstaining from eggs, but not dairy). I have noticed at Ananda, eggs are sometimes served. Do we know if Master actually ate eggs (not just served them)?

I am thinking to perhaps try to add them in my diet in the future.

Thank you.

Dear Rama,

I don’t know if Master ate eggs. He did offer many recipes with eggs in his original lessons. He does recommend them as a meat substitute. Swami Kriyananda, his direct disciple, eats eggs occasionally.

I’m sorry to not be able to give more information on this.

Joy to you,
