Life subsists on life. A bit of violence is inevitable for the life to continue. From inert stone to the living animals, life is manifest in different levels. Yes, it is true plants are also alive, but the level of manifestation of life is not to the level of the other animals.
It is good to be a vegetarian when you are treading the path of calmed state of mind. But it is not that those who are not vegetarian would not reach to that point. It depends on the nature of the individual, but if you are fine with veg foodstuffs, and at the same time have a deep urge for the Spirit, you may continue with that.
The books that the Mission distributes is against a price, it is not for free distribution, but of course at times complementary copies are given. My blessings and love to you. Baba
