JOURNEY FROM JEEVA-MAITRI TO JEEVA-RAKSHA
Original principal (back-bone) of Indian Culture
is non-violence .No religion originated from
this country wherein non-violence is not
accepted as main element/ principle. Desire of
non violence creates love for each other
(amongst the lives ) and love creates universal
peace .When you save /protect any life ( all
living things ) you are not just saving one life
but helping to sustain the universal peace .
Slaughter houses are working towards disturbance
of universal peace. Divine desire of
non-violence guarantees the right to live to all
lives .No one of us (humans) has any right to
take the life of any one.
behavior towards any life creates connection to
its soul. One who shows love to other lives gets
love in return. Hatred will be reciprocated by
hate. Chandkoushik a deadly and violent serpent
too became non-violent for ever when he came
in to contact with (Lord) Prabhu Veer who ever
keeps kindness/mercy towards all lives, Desire
/feelings of non-violence creates cordial
relations amongst lives.
towards other lives gives benefits to the person
himself before others. Good friendly feelings
towards other lives attracts them to us and
feeling of oneness (unity) takes place .Prabhu
Mahveer has also said “ JIVAVAHO-AAppvaho”
meaning the killing /harm to other lives is like
killing /harming ourselves. Kindness/mercy
towards others is kindness towards us. Act of
killing first takes place in the mind of the
killer before the actual killing takes place.
Killing of even one life results into killing of
spirit of one-ness with other lives in the
universe .Then more killing of lives takes
place. Killing of one life kills the spirit of
co-existence which is as bad as killing all
lives. Today‘s a killer of one life spare whom
(tomorrow)? That’s not ascertainable.
Friendliness with all lives is the foundation
stone of human-life.
Before being directly or indirectly instrumental
/supportive in the killing of any life one
should think about their selfless
contributions/co-operation to our lives without
which how dull would have been our lives? One
can not imagine human-life without earth, water,
vegetation and most importantly the assistance
of innocent animals like cows, buffaloes, Sheep
etc. How we who drink milk of cows and buffaloes
throughout our life become though indirectly
instrumental /reason for their killings?
Unfortunately we consider petrol more important
than the cow’s milk. We will easily compromise
fresh milk for powder (dried) milk but cannot
survive without petrol and therefore we are
importing petrol/diesel against the export of
billions of tones of cow-meat. Mothers feed us
(milk) for six months but animals like cows and
buffaloes give their milk for life time
therefore it is an important part of our
moral/practical responsibility to look after
them during our entire life.
During the ancient time to look after aged and
milk-less animals we (in India) had
animal-care-centers in most of the villages.
There were more animal-care-houses than
slaughter houses. Today slaughter-houses are
increasing. Young men are doing difficult work
of saving animals from the reach of butchers at
the cost of their lives. For this purpose they
are fighting from police to Supreme Court (of
India). When it is difficult to save life of an
animal it is very necessary to build more new
animal-care-centers for saving more
the divine purpose of saving animal lives kind
and generous donors have constructed a huge
animal-care-center (Panjarapole) in the vicinity
of Dharmachakra Prabhavati Tirth where about
500 animals are being looked after (taken care
of ) for last three years .
