Hindus avoid or restrict garlic as it is considered, along with alcohol and onions, to hinder the search for spiritual enlightenment. Additionally, some Buddhist monks will not eat garlic as it is considered to increase sexual appetite and anger.
Mainstream denominations within the Hindu faith do not prohibit garlic consumption, but within more extreme sects such as Jainism, it is prohibited because of one of the religion’s central tenets (ahisma – not harming anything which has life). According to Jainism, garlic has a higher concentration of life-force than other vegetables because of its extremely pent flavor, and so they prohibit it’s consumption as a violation of ahisma.
