World Vegetarian Day – October 1st

Today, October 1st, is International Vegetarian Day. I hope you all ate your vegetables today.  As a lifelong vegetarian, I’m happy to celebrate this “holiday”.  There is a verse in the Vedic literature of ancient India to the effect that, “Slaughtering of animals [by humans for food consumption] is also a form of war. The Earth will never know peace and freedom from war so long as humankind continues to slaughter animals.” Something to think about.

Personally, I’m always somewhat amazed and dismayed at people who claim to love animals (and perhaps live with one or more as pets/companions), yet continue to eat other murdered animals — sometimes one or more individual animals once or twice or thrice a day, virtually every day of the year. Just seems so bizarre to me…but to each their own…
