While there are many aspects of animal rights I am passionate about- The Anti Fur Movement is one I care about a great deal. I abhor wearing fur. I think it's possibly one of the most grotesque and perverse things a human being can do- especially in our society where we have other sources of material at our disposal at much more affordable prices. This isn't the stone age- we do not need to run around in our loin cloth and bag on our chests anymore.
I've had so many people…Continue
I'm trying to find this meme that really just captures the stupidity behind the demand of "respect"- respect for an action which causes suffering. Asked my friend to repost it, so when I find it I want to share it here :) Again it reminds me of this quote:
“Asking vegans to respect your decision to eat meat is on par with asking feminists to respect sexists, asking Poc to respect racists and asking homosexuals to respect homophobes. It is ludicrous to think that difference in opinion…Continue
Hello All! Just watched this film for the first time yesterday and I can't wait to share it with as many as possible! It is a must-see! Please share with your friends, families, and loved ones. This should definitely "hit home" with most meat eaters, whilst not serving them a steaming heap of guilt like, say, Earthlings seems to do. "Forks Over Knives" is simply one of the most biologically&chemically correct, research oriented, and statistically sound documentary you will ever see on…Continue
I feel I can handle the world and life better Can you ?How do you feel?
Those that come after you aggressively
Those who are held down by negativity
Those that are always craving power
those who dont care and dont move with their hearts but there stomachs
Its amazing how you get enlightened and Im just wondering and sympathetic and a little like wow not trying to yield to being afraid that I am surrounded when its not totally clear one day that most people who eat meat dont even know why the monks at the…Continue

As we all know Jesus had many things to say about judgmental thinking and none of them were good.He taught that God is the only one qualified to judge how other people live and if we're smart,we'd mind our own business and keep our judgmental thoughts to ourself.Even better we need to leave the business of judgment up to God and change the focus of our life to love.
Jesus made it clear that none of us are qualified to act as judge or jury on the compromises and choices that…

Inside the North Pole… Alien Encounters BY: ABHAYA MUDRA DASI

It is said that there are many unseen passages from Earth which lead to different regions of our universe. Some lead up and some lead down. There are fourteen planetary systems in our universe. At night we see Svargaloka as a chandelier of stars over our heads and if we are observant we can distinguish that the movement of this plane is similar to the twisting of a…Continue

I know a LOT of people who don't mind eating meat. I just ignore them. But it is really frustrating when I talk to people about factory farming and they just don't care. I just loose so much respect for them. And they are really nice and smart friends, but don't understand why that is wrong.
Should I still be friends with them? Should I still tirelessly explain why it's wrong, or should I just grind my teeth every-time I see them?
Well, in order to understand others,we've got to step back from it a little bit.Remember our intentions.You’d like the world to be a better place?Right?You would like appropriate things to take place?You would like to be a facilitator to help people realize things?
Now, as you talk about why you’re wanting, what you want, you have to always…Continue

I was at the gas station filling up the tank when I saw it pull in. A huge livestock trailer loudly buzzed through the lot and parked by the diesel tanks. I could here them calling out, crying from across the lot. Their sorrow filled bellows made my heart sink to the ground. Impulse got the best of me as it always does, and I was off.
As I crossed the lot, I saw the huge black numbers sprawled across the side of the trailer: '615'. I couldn't help but think it should be '666' instead.…Continue
1. French Fries. You might not know this, but 2 out of 3 fry recipes get their flavor by soaking in beef, chicken, or other animal fat. I have cut them out of my diet to prevent this.
2. Gelatin. Before you pick up a cup of Jello, be aware it is made by boiling pig/horse feet to get the gelatin.
3. Lard. In order for companies to create lard, they must cut open a hog to collect the fat. It is then made into lard.
Sorry if I grossed you out. Just stating the facts.

I am not really someone to whinge but how can people truly complain about animal abuse, and claim love their pets and in general love animals if they actively take part in their consumption? I realise many people are uneducated about the disgusting ways in which meat is harvested and…
