Pythagoras words

"To be non-violent to human beings and to be a killer or enemy of poor animals is Satan's philosophy. In this age there is always enmity against animals, and therefore the poor creatures are always anxious. 

The reaction of the poor animals is being forced on human society, and therefore there is always the strain of cold or hot war between men, individually, collectively or nationally... 

"The earth affords a lavish supply of riches, of innocent foods, and offers you banquets that involve no bloodshed or slaughter; only beasts satisfy their hunger with flesh, and not even all of those, because horses, cattle, and sheep live on grass.

As long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seeds of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love." Pythagoras

Mohatama Gandhi words

"To my mind, the life of a lamb is no less precious than that of a human being. I should be unwilling to take the life of a lamb for the sake of the human body." Mohatama Gandhi (1869-1948)

"I abhor vivisection with my whole soul. All the scientific discoveries stained with innocent blood I count as of no consequence." Mahatma Gandhi

Albert Einstein words

"Although I have been prevented by outward circumstances from observing a strictly vegetarian diet, I have long been an adherent to the cause in principle. Besides agreeing with the aims of vegetarianism for aesthetic and moral reasons,it is my view that a vegetarian manner of living by its purely physical effect on the human temperament would most beneficially influence the lot of mankind."

Translation of letter to Hermann Huth, December 27, 1930. Einstein Archive 46-756

"If a man aspires towards a righteous life, his first act of abstinence is from injury to animals."

"Vegetarian food leaves a deep impression on our nature. If the whole world adopts vegetarianism, it can change the destiny of humankind." Albert Einstein

Buddha preach

"To become vegetarian is to step into the stream which leads to nirvana."

"When a man has pity on all living creatures then only is he noble." 


The Vegetarianism

Vegetarianism involves the practice of following a diet that includes vegetables, fruits, cereal grains, nuts, and seeds, with or without dairy products or eggs.

A vegetarian does not eat meat, including game, poultry, fish, shellfish and crustacea, and may also abstain from by-products of animal slaughter such as animal-derived rennet and gelatin.

Vegetarianism can be adopted for different reasons: In addition to ethical reasons, some reasons for vegetarianism include health, religious, political, cultural, aesthetic or economic, and there are varieties of the diet:

An ovo-vegetarian diet includes eggs but not dairy products, a lacto-vegetarian diet includes dairy products but not eggs, and an ovo-lacto vegetarian diet includes both eggs and dairy products.

A vegan diet excludes all animal products, such as eggs, dairy, and honey.
