Holy Cow

Many in India see things differently than many in other countries. Take the cow, for example, held in high esteem to be protected and revered. Where I’m from, you most likely won’t see a bovine adorned with flowers.

People often ask why I turned vegan. The answer is somewhere in here…it’s a little less about diet. A little more about non-violence. Like my daughter, who inspired me to be vegan said, “it’s easy to be vegan when it’s for the sake of animals and the planet, not just for yourself.”

Today we went to a place where Gandhi spent some time. I bought a book with his words of wisdom. “Ahimsa (non-violence) is the highest ideal. It is meant for the brave never for the cowardly.”

I’m working on respecting all living things; I’m working on my bravery. Namaste.
