REVERENCE FOR ALL LIFE
Implanted deep in Sadhu Vaswani’s heart was reverence for all life. Every little thing he did was inspired by the vision cosmic. His heart bled at the cruelties inflicted upon animals day after day. “Take my head” ,he pleaded, ” but pray, stop all slaughter!”.
This deep awareness of the need for reverence for all life, in whichever form it is manifested, formed a very essential part of Sadhu Vaswani’s teaching and has been propagated by the International “MEATLESS DAY COMPAIGN”.
For the last several years hundreds of thousands of devotees have been observing NOVEMBER 25, Sadhu Vaswani’s birthday of the Meatless Day and Animal Right’s Day, expressing their shared commitment to the ideal of reverence for all life.
“Animals are persons. The beast in the field and the birds on the wings are also persons. They too, hide beneath then masks the one hidden life”.
