Happy World Vegan Day 2015

Happy World Vegan Day 2015

“By eating meat we share the responsibility of climate change, the destruction of our forests, and the poisoning of our air and water. The simple act of becoming a vegetarian will make a difference in the health of our planet.” (Thich Nhat Hạnh)

“Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.” (Albert Einstein)

"In Sant Mat animal food cannot be allowed under any conditions. It hardens the heart and makes the soul dull and heavy." (Huzur Baba Sawan Singh)

"I must point out that animal food, even if a single particle is eaten, is detrimental to spiritual progress."       (Huzur Baba Sawan Singh)

"I never gave permission to anyone to eat meat in my life. A mother does not administer poison to her own children. In the Radhasoami Faith animal food cannot be allowed under any conditions. It hardens the heart, and makes the soul dull and heavy." (Huzur Baba Sawan Singh)

"World Vegan Day is an annual event celebrated on 1 November, by vegans around the world. The Day was established in 1994 by Louise Wallis, then President & Chair of The Vegan Society, United Kingdom to commemorate its 50th anniversary and in 2014 the 70th anniversary of the term 'vegan', 'veganism', and the establishment of The Vegan Society." (Wikipedia entry for World Vegan Day)

"Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose." (Definition of veganism, The Vegan Society)

"He is closest to God who harms no living creature." (Lord Krishna)

"For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love.” (Pythagoras)

"Now beware in yourselves that your hearts do not become heavy with the eating of flesh and with the intoxication of wine and with the anxiety of the world, and that day come up upon you suddenly; for as a snare it will come upon all them that dwell on the surface of the earth." (Jesus, Luke 21:34, Syriac-Aramaic manuscript of the Gospels)

"I continue to be amazed by our bodies' ability for self-repair. ... Our bodies want to be healthy, if we would just let them. That’s what these new research articles are showing: Even after years of beating yourself up with a horrible diet, your body can reverse the damage, open back up the arteries -- even reverse the progression of some cancers. Amazing! So it's never too late to start exercising, never too late to stop smoking and never too late to start eating healthier." (Dr. Michael Greger)
