In a Television interview Dada J.P. Vaswani, The Spiritual head of the Sadhuvaswani Mission , clearified certain issues regarding the Meatless Day Campaign. "How did the meatless day campaign originate ?" he was asked. He said, Sadhu Vaswani was a voice of the voiceless ones, the dumb defenceless children of God, who alas, are being slain by the million in our soulless cities everyday, "O the sin of daily slaughter in our cities" he exclaimed. And he added words with which many may not agree. But he spoke with the foresight of a seer when he said, "Beleive me the day is coming when meat eating will be condemned as murder!" he also said "I have seen God's image shining in birds and animals, and for me not to love birds and animals would be not to love the Lord!". On one occassion he even said "Take my head but pray go and have slaughter houses closed!". One of Sadhu Vaswani's devotees who lives in America (New Jersey) Mr Bob (Bali) Gurbani, suggested that November 25, the birthday of the humble, holy man of God, this saint who pleaded for mercy to all living beings, be observed year after year as International Meatless Day. We have been doing so for the last 15 years.

Q. It is Difficult to understand what connection could there be between not eating meat and world peace ?

A. Meat eating and world peace appear to be poles apart. Actually the two are interlinked. So long as animals and birds are slain to provide meat for man, so long we will not see peace on the face of this earth. If a man kills an animal for food, he will not hesitate in killing his fellow-man, who he considers his enemy. The root cause of world wars is irreverence for life. Dr. Albert Schweitzer who was awarded the nobel Prize for Peace, urged that there will no peace until we educate our people to grow in reverence for life. reverence for all life. Until we have reverence for life we will not be able to abolish wars. It is only through a shared reverence for all life that the dream of world peace can be turned in to a realizable goal.

Q. I am told that you have raised your voice in favour of animal right. Do you think that animal have rights?

A.Men and Women have their rights: do animals have no rights? The time has come when all animal lovers should come together and formulate a charter of Animal Rights and a charter of man's duties towards the Animal Kingdom. Animals must be given certain Fundamental Rights. And the very first right of every animal is right to live. We must not take that which we cannot give. Since we cannot give life to a dead creature, we have no right to take away the life of a living one.

There is also much weight given by raw foodists to the giving up altogether of cooked food in any form. This raw food diet truth that is growing in awareness among many who are turning toward this positive healthy mode of eating is becoming easier to understand. It is obvious really, since raw foods contain all the nutrients and goodness they came with that are not destroyed by the cooking process. Food for thought, certainly!
