Celebrating Krishna Devotees and Creation

Week Ahead

Dear Friends,

Here is a snippet from His Holiness Jayadvaita Swami’s brilliant lecture at Wits University:

“I want to be happy, and so too do all other living beings. And just as I feel pain, so too do all others. Why then should I not want all other living beings to be happy? And why should I cause any other living being needless pain? And so the Vedic aphorism, sarve sukhino bhavantu: “May there be happiness for all.” In practical terms, this implies a change of diet, from a diet that relies on cruelty and slaughter to a diet gentle and humane. To inflict pain and suffering on millions of animals through wholesale slaughter and then to expect friendship, peace and tranquility among human beings is to live in a fool’s dream.”
