Connect with vegetarian and vegan friends from all over the world.
I was born in America in the 50s which was an extreme meat eating country.There was no strong animal rights/vegetarian movement and to not eat cow was considered a mortal sin.You could not buy tofu at Walmart and there was no Walmart.One Sunday while listening to the local 'alternative' FM station I heard Swami Kriyananda give a discourse.I was very attracted to Yoga philosophy and started attending his classes.Later his disciple Kali Dasa,who had just come out of six months of silence,took over the programs while the Swami was away.One evening after the program he looked me straight in the eye and said,softly but powerfully.'Jim vegetarianism is better for your spirtual life.'At that moment it was as if a LIGHT went off in my brain.I COULD NEVER EVEN THINK OF EATING MEAT AGAIN.Then in 1972 I joined the HARE KRISHNA Movement in which all members are vegetarian.My wife and I have distributed truckloads of a vegetarian cookbook called THE HIGHER TASTE.
About twenty years ago while driving to Philadelphia we stopped to pay our toll on the Pa. Turnpike and read the sign STOP--PAY THE TOLL.I thought this would make a fantastic bumper sticker:
STOP CRUELTY TO ANIMALS
This has been our primary bumper sticker since then.Then we got from ISCOWP
KISS MY OX---LOVE HIM DON'T EAT HIM
and we developed and bought others.Recently I came up with idea of VEGETARIANS REINCARNATE BETTER,which is not only a sticker but a Facebook page.
