Radhanath Swami recommends vegetarianism

10-VegetarianismEdmund Burke, a British statesmen, he had said that there can be nothing that can help evil to be triumphant as when good people don’t do anything.

“Activism, compassionate activism, to bring education and awareness to people is so critically important today.”- Radhanath Swami

Almost all of us are aware of the incredible statistics that are coming out about the dangers of a meat based diet, not only to health, not only to the aesthetic value of the human mind, but to the environment, and to the human population.

Recently I heard a static: every day worldwide about 2 billion animals are killed. What is the karma! Any pain inflicted on any living being is bound to come back to us, not only does it come back to the person killing, but it affects the world. I read that 40,000 potatoes can grow on 1 acre of land, or else we could produce only 250 pounds of meat through the same amount of land.

The starvation in the world is not due to a lack of food; that’s secondary. The hunger in the world is due to a lack of human compassion. If we utilize the resources of Mother Nature, the resources that God has given us in a responsible compassionate way, the conclusion is, we have to transcend this meat eating civilization. The amount of water, the amount of land, and the pollution it creates, it’s unsustainable, and it’s unnatural. We have to be the change we want to see in the world.
